Where How meets Why

Our Mission

We believe that underserved people can regain their autonomy in the struggle for digital freedom, but only if they lead that struggle themselves, and have the right tools to do so.

We create those tools.

Our mission is to create technological solutions that empower individuals to own and operate public network infrastructure without the need for an association or the technical and financial hurdles of traditional networks. Through our technology, our vision is to make truly affordable, unlimited internet a reality for everyone.

Our Culture
At RIOT, WHAT we do is equally as important and meaningful as HOW we do it.

Because the technology that we create is an expression of our team’s diverse personalities and beliefs, we encourage everyone to balance the enjoyment of their daily work with the pleasure of successful outcomes.

Agency and Accountability

We aim to empower ourselves and others with agency. However, we know that to get it we have to create it.

This idea is what RIOT was founded upon.

Compassion

You can always learn something from everyone in the room. When you have something to teach, do it with swift kindness. 

There’s no place for ego’s in problem solving.

Highly Aligned, Loosely Coupled

You can’t know it’s a forest unless you’ve seen the trees.

You can’t see the trees unless you’re in the forest.

The value of your work is not appreciated by its scale, but by how well it complements our shared vision and moves us closer to our shared goals.

Contextual Authority

When hierarchy in our team helps us to achieve our goals, we nominate champions to lead us. 

When hierarchy no longer serves us, we question its relevance and redefine the way we organise.

The purpose of your authority is not power, authority is the result of your ability to create empowering conditions for those on your team.

Communication

Listen actively. Show, don’t tell.

We admire those who can communicate concisely, articulately and make things accessible for everyone to understand. A brilliant mind is wasted without excellent communication skills.

Experimentation and Failure

Fail like a scientist! 

Ask good questions. Interrogate assumptions and reason collectively.

We prefer exploration over imitation and honor those who make progress over those who merely succeed. Success is often about luck. Progress requires grit – a powerful combination of determination and clear direction.

We prefer exploration over imitation – don’t be afraid of the scenic route. But be mindful not to get lost on your way.

We honor those who make progress over those who merely succeed. Success is often about luck. Progress requires grit – a powerful combination of determination and clear direction.

We’re looking for brilliant new minds.
