About Firstbase

Remote work is the biggest workplace revolution in history. Nothing will deliver a higher quality of life upgrade in the next decade. The biggest challenge is in providing the core infrastructure that makes going remote easy for companies. Firstbase helps companies setup, manage, maintain and retrieve all the physical equipment remote workers need to do great work at home.

We're a small and fully distributed team, currently spanning from the US to Copenhagen and we take pride in our ability to function as an effective remote-first organization. We offer market-rate salaries (including equity), a home office (via Firstbase), insurance, as many books as you could ever hope to read, and a tight-knit group of people passionate about creating for the future of work.

Our Enterprise Sales team members are responsible for selling to the largest Enterprise organizations. You are committed to winning and taking advantage of the untapped customer base that could benefit from Firstbase's product offering.
