Homebase is accelerating the world's transition to local-first software. We believe that data should live on device. Local data should sync seamlessly across devices and collaboration should be built into the data structures developers use every day to build applications.

Some of the best applications like Figma, Superhuman and Messenger already incorporate local-first principles to improve performance, security and collaboration. At Homebase we're aiming to make these tools accessible to all developers by simplifying hosting of local-first apps and contributing to core open source projects like the Datahike database.

Homebase is an equal opportunity employer. We encourage individuals from underrepresented groups to apply. All employment is based on merit and business need.
