About the team

Hypothesis is a small mission driven, public benefit startup with strong financial backing. Our goal is to bring standards-based collaboration and conversation to the web at scale.  We are currently ramping up to respond to high demand from stakeholders across the education and research marketplace as the world shifts permanently to a remote-first workflow.

We are a diverse, supportive, highly collaborative, 100% remote team of technologists, educators, and business people working together to bring new capabilities to the web. We code in the open (our repos are public and liberally licensed) and help drive standards for annotation. Though we operate remotely, we are a close-knit team that communicates via Slack, video chat, GitHub, and Google Docs across 8 time zones.
