We're building a better way to code

At Trunk, our goal is to help teams build software better, faster. We formed in 2021 to create a holistic developer experience toolkit and now we’re backed by phenomenal investors like Andreessen Horowitz and Initialized Capital. We’re a hybrid remote team spread across the country, with an office in San Francisco.

Our Company Culture

Here at Trunk, we aren’t just building dev tools; we’re creating an environment that promotes ingenuity and self-expression. We’ve done the corporate thing, and we’re over it. We've designed a culture around three core tenets: initiative, autonomy, and empathy.

TakingInitiative

We're in a space where stagnation equals obsolescence. We believe in trust rather than oversight. We encourage our team to take initiative and we’re nimble enough to thrive on it. Have an idea you think will move the needle? Go for it! Great ideas are worth it.

EnjoyingAutonomy

Want to work at off hours? Need to walk your dog or visit your therapist in the afternoon? Do it. Just hit your deadlines, show up for the few meetings we have, and treat each other with respect. We trust your judgment, your skills, and your vision. Here, you will have the freedom to shape our products, enhance your expertise, and contribute to the growth of our company. We understand that not all great work has to happen between 9-5 so how and when you work is (mostly) up to you.

PracticingEmpathy

Because we are developers building developer tools, we get it; empathy allows us to build what’s right for our customers. We understand their challenges, we listen to their feedback, and we strive to create tools that make their work more rewarding. It cultivates a deeper understanding, mutual respect, and an inclusive and diverse work environment. We set aside personal biases and make data-driven decisions for the longevity of Trunk.

Funding

We’ve raised over twenty-eight million from some of Silicon Valley's top investors.
