Mission

Whist (formerly Fractal) is building the world's fastest web browser.

We're building a browser that's streamed from powerful datacenter servers to your computer. Whist runs on unlimited RAM, a powerful graphics card and 2 Gbps Internet speed. Pages load instantly, heavy web apps don't lag, and your laptop's fan doesn't spin when you have a sea of tabs open.

We're looking for talented engineers and operators who are interested in building the future alongside us. If there's no opening for your specific skill set but you want to work with us, please reach out to careers@whist.com.

Life at Whist

We're a young company based in downtown New York City, with most of our team working remote from all across the world (United States, Canada, India, UK, France, Mexico). We started remote-first and will always remain a remote-friendly company. To see all of our values and principles, take a look at our Whistfulness Guide.

To make this possible, we operate under a flexible work schedule with afternoon standups to allow people to work when they can be most productive. We don't count hours and instead focus on work quality. We strive to provide a stimulating and rewarding work environment, even remotely, where everyone at Whist is someone you respect and can learn from. Overall, we believe in work-life harmony and strive to make Whist fit in well with everything that matters to you.
