Gumroad is 100% remote and async. We focus on shipping instead of meeting. We have product-market fit: over $13M in creator earnings per month. We’re also profitable.


You can read more about the way we work here, or watch our most recent public board meeting.

TLDR or watch: Everyone works hourly–between 15 and 35 hours a week–and tracks their time with our new product, Flexile. There are no meetings, besides the board meeting. And one annual retreat a year. Besides cash there is also a 100% equity bonus–upon exercise, this entitles you to a portion of annual dividends.


We issued our first $1M dividend in July, and will issue 60% of net income starting in Jan 2024–aiming for $6M a year based on $10M in net income

Many people have worked at Gumroad for several years; contract doesn’t mean short!
