Hey, we’re Flixed! 👋

Flixed is a website run by a small remote team that helps people navigate the rapidly evolving streaming ecosystem.

We're a platform that helps consumers choose the best streaming service for them through our content, resources, and tools for navigating the streaming landscape.

Values and Principles

We win and lose
as a team.

What it means

Contributing to the betterment of those around you is equally as important as your individual contributions.

In practice

In order to get promoted, you’ll be evaluated not only on your direct contributions to Flixed, but also the impact you’ve had in supporting those around you.

Growth should
be continuous.

What it means

We take the long view on developing our people.

In practice

You will be expected to maintain a beginner’s mind as you continuously undertake progressively more difficult and challenging problems.

Deep work
matters to us.

What it means

One hour of deep, concentrated work is often more valuable than several hours of scattered, unfocused work.

In practice

We encourage all of our employees to check Slack & email infrequently and avoid engaging in busywork.

Balance fosters

What it means

When you’re tired your ability to produce creative insights will diminish while a well-rested mind is ideal for creativity.

In practice

You typically shouldn’t work evenings or weekends. We also provide top-notch healthcare plans, fitness benefits and a learning & development stipend to support your personal life.
