Glitch is a different kind of company.
We started almost 20 years ago as Fog Creek Software, a pioneering independent tech company that has always put people first.
Along the way, our team invented Trello, co-created Stack Overflow, and launched many other groundbreaking apps that collectively have made us one of the most influential small tech companies ever. Now we're building Glitch, the friendliest, most inclusive and welcoming social platform on the internet.
And we’re here to push the tech world to do better. We are doubling-down on providing the best place to work in the entire tech industry. And we aim to do nothing less than set the standard for thoughtful and ethical practices in tech.
