At Kalo, we believe that work as we know it is undergoing a profound change. Every day, people around the world are getting things done on more flexible, more dynamic, more variable, and more distributed terms. Our mission is to enable this shift to flexible work, by empowering companies and individuals to work together in new ways. In 2015, we launched our solution to let companies easily onboard, manage, talk with, and pay their external workers. Since then, a range of of companies from internet to fashion -- including Netflix, Asos, IDEO and AirBnB -- have been able to throw away their tangle of spreadsheets and invoice emails, and work together with their freelancer and vendor teams in a clean, beautiful experience. Our own team at Kalo is just getting started.
 
Located in London and San Francisco, we are super excited about the opportunity ahead of us. We take our work very seriously, but we never take ourselves too seriously. We love teaming up on hard problems without much guidance, and we don’t believe in titles. Messing up is OK, especially if there’s a funny story to go with it.
