About Fringe

We built Fringe to give companies a better way to show love and care to their people. Why? Because we believe it’s the people who really matter.

Companies exist because of the products and services they offer, but we believe the people within them should come first. At Fringe, this is the way we live.

What does this practically look like? It means we hire people who care about their teammates just as much as (if not more than) themselves. We hire people who are genuine, humble, willing to learn, ready to teach, able to adapt, flex, collaborate, celebrate each other, win together and lose together.

We’re a startup, and that means we must be a courageous group. We solve problems all day, but we also mess up sometimes. We extend grace to each other, and we try again. We aren’t looking for perfect people. We’re looking for people who own their faults, play to their strengths, and have the courage to simply be the same person all the time.

If that doesn’t sound like your cup of cold brew, no hard feelings. But that’s exactly who we are and what you can expect when you work at Fringe.

Still interested? We’d love for you to apply.
