Want to know what makes MailerLite’s remote-first culture tick?

Our Chief People and Culture Officer, Remis, sat down with Vitaly Koval from the Default Global podcast to give an insider's view of our thriving remote work culture and the values that keep us growing.

Listen now to dive deep into the heart of MailerLite, from our serendipitous global communities to the foundational values that guide us. Discover how trust, simplicity and leadership empower our team to innovate and excel, no matter where in the world they log in from.

This candid discussion takes you behind the scenes, offering a glimpse into the people, places, and practices that define our unique work environment. Here’s a little taster of the topics Remis and Vitaly uncover. →

A global melting pot: It's all about the people

Did you know there’s a mini MailerLite community in Honduras? That wasn't the plan—it just happened! One awesome hire (a Customer Support Manager who happened to be located in Honduras) led to another, and before we knew it, Honduras became one of our talent hotspots.

We focus on people, personality and skills rather than continents and countries.
- Remis, Chief People and Culture Officer

It's about what you bring to the table and who you are, rather than where you're sitting while you do it.

Honduras isn’t the only place we’ve found extraordinary talent. We’ve got teammates in over 40 countries, which means you can find a coffee date in any corner of the globe!

Keeping it real with our values

We don't just talk the talk; we walk the walk. Our core values are felt in every aspect of our operations, from streamlining onboarding processes to fostering an environment where everyone has a voice. Discover how this approach makes our work more efficient and builds a culture where every team member feels valued and empowered.

The whole compensation thing

Yep, we’re not afraid to talk about money. At MailerLite we have a completely transparent compensation policy. Your value and contributions set your pay, not your geographic location. This commitment to fairness means you're supported to live and work where you feel most inspired, whether that’s your hometown or a tropical beach halfway across the world.

It's about giving you the freedom to explore and settle in spaces that ignite your creativity and enhance your productivity, recognizing that when you're in your element, you do your best work.

Trust: Our secret sauce

We trust each other 100%. It’s the very foundation of our value-driven culture. Got a crazy idea? Pitch it! Made a mistake? Own it and learn. It's about giving you room to grow and shine, without peering over your shoulder. Tune in to hear how trust has led to some of our best work and, why it makes working here so darn special.
