Roadie helps companies manage their internal services with a SaaS version of Backstage. Backstage is a service catalog which was created inside Spotify and has been battle-tested in production since 2016. Every day, thousands of Spotify employees use Backstage to do critical development and operations work.
We are a talented group of engineers who experienced the problems of service sprawl first-hand and decided that there is a better way. By unlocking the power of Backstage, we can make software development easier, faster and more enjoyable.
Focussed on collaboration
We choose to work on problems together rather than apart. We take the time to ensure everyone has the context required to contribute. Titles or experience do not fully determine who gets to work on what. There are no brilliant jerks here.
Optimized for learning
Controlled failures are encouraged at Roadie. Psychological safety is paramount. Nobody will be punished for experiments that don’t work out. We are always open to new ideas and no idea will be ridiculed.
Fulfilled by autonomy
Each person in Roadie is given a wide remit. We trust each other to deliver results without much hand holding. §Decisions are made by those closest to the issue rather than those with the most seniority. We operate as though most decisions are reversible.
Driven by customer compassion
We take the time to deeply understand customer problems. We don't build things simply because we want to. We are focused on creating an excellent experience for the end user.
Conscious of community
We consider our impact on the wider ecosystem and do our best for diversity, inclusion and equity. Our product was born from an open source project, so we consider ourselves part of a broad community.
