    Medium's mission is to deepen readers' understanding of the world and to empower writers to share their best work and biggest ideas. We're a tight-knit group of 80 employees obsessing over our product that reaches 80 million readers every month. We're building a subscription publishing platform that connects expert writers with thoughtful readers.

    Our product allows the best ideas to rise to the top and elevates the most passionate, diverse voices. Our company culture reflects the same. We encourage employees to speak their mind, always do what's right for our users, and take ownership of their projects. We move quickly to get our ideas into the world, working in small, empowered teams, as we try to build a better place on the internet for ideas.
