Company Mission
Our mission is simple; code is about the people writing it. We focus on lowering the barriers of collaboration by building powerful features into our products that make it easier to contribute. The tools we create help individuals and companies, public and private, to write better code, faster.
About
GitHub is the best place to share code with friends, co-workers, classmates, and complete strangers. Over fourteen million people use GitHub to build amazing things together. With the collaborative features of GitHub.com, our desktop and mobile apps, and GitHub Enterprise, it has never been easier for individuals and teams to write better code, faster.

We have a lot of exciting things to do, and we’re looking for the right people to grow with us!

GitHub is made up of people with many different backgrounds and lifestyles, and we like it that way. We invite applications from people of all stripes. We don't discriminate against employees or applicants based on gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, religion, age, national origin, citizenship, pregnancy status, veteran status, or any other differences that people imagine to discriminate against one another.
Company Values
GitHub was created for developers by developers. To build the best platform for you, we need to build a company that reflects the world we live in today.
