Remote-first culture

Fauna is headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area with remote employee presence throughout the Americas and Europe.  We embrace a remote first culture and offer employees the flexibility of work locations depending on their geography. We are committed to investing in the tools and resources employees need to work from a variety of locations.  

Our Mission

To make working with operational data productive, scalable and secure for every software development team.

Our Core Principles

How we achieve our mission collectively is equally, if not more important than what we achieve together. In addition, working with colleagues in an organization whose core principles are aligned with your own is a major driver of happiness and fulfillment in your job. To that end, we have been purposeful about writing down our core principles at and are committed to living by them. 

We believe these principles create a framework for all of our actions and thus are foundational to our culture. They guide everything we do, including how we interact with our employees, customers and community, and our vendors and business partners. As we grow, our processes and strategies will change, but these nine principles will persist.

Solve for the Customer

We succeed when our customers succeed.  We listen, learn and anticipate their needs so that all customers, not just the loudest, can realize their ambitions. We strive to delight developers, foster a vibrant community, and be a strategic business partner that our customers can trust.

Be Optimistic and Think Big 

We are ambitious, with big goals.  We are micro pessimists but macro optimists.  We communicate bold directions and will look around corners for ways to achieve them. We maintain perspective and unite to overcome challenges.  We co-create solutions instead of choosing to blame and criticize. 

Innovate Where it Matters

We innovate deliberately to achieve a distinct competitive advantage and are not limited by a “not invented here" mentality.  We avoid undifferentiated heavy lifting by embracing partnerships and taking advantage of products and services that are continuously improving.

Own it and Make it Happen

We build our company like it’s ours, because it is.  We work hard and smart with a bias towards actions that deliver results.  Speed matters so we don’t let perfection be the enemy of good enough. We commit and deliver. If we make a mistake, we own it, fix it, learn from it and move on.

Seek the Best Idea, then Commit

We stay curious, creative and always seek out unique perspectives. We dive deep into the details and raise questions when metrics and anecdotes differ.  We have conviction and challenge ideas, even when it’s uncomfortable. Once a decision is made, even if we prefer another, we disagree and commit.

Act with Integrity

We are open, honest and respectful.  We listen attentively and speak candidly, continuously working to build mutual trust and understanding across all levels of the organization.  We are transparent in our communications and actions with each other, customers, partners and our broader community.

Work as One Team 

Great achievements are the result of many, not just one.  We strive to do our best, check our egos at the door, and always give each other the benefit of the doubt.  We are all company owners and always do what’s best for the organization overall.

Attract and Develop the Best 

We hire, develop and empower the best. We believe that being the best requires diversity, which fosters innovation, creativity and empathy in ways that homogeneity cannot. We embrace our differences, recognize talent, and invest in mechanisms and coaching to proactively develop careers.

Stay Hungry & Humble

Only the paranoid survive.  We avoid hubris and strive to do better, no matter how much we achieve. We recognize that complacency means irrelevance and we relentlessly seek opportunities to improve.
