At Mattermost, most of the company works from home. Our headquarters is on the internet–Specifically, we work on an open test server called https://pre-release.mattermost.com which runs a pre-released version of Mattermost software with all the newest features and improvements (which is occassionally unstable). The server is integrated with Zoom and employees and staff members can launch voice, video and screensharing meetings with a button click.
Joining the test server
If you’re thinking of joining Mattermost as an open source contributor, as an employee or staff contributor, or as an ecosystem partner, we welcome you to start an account on our server and see what it’s like to work here–and even try installing the mobile apps if you would like.
When you join, please use the username
firstname.lastname so it’s easier to get to know you. You can create a new account from here: https://pre-release.mattermost.com/signup_user_complete (select Email and Password).
A bot will suggest different channels for you to view, and you’re welcome to join any channel on the server. All the information you’ll have access to is public (employees and staff have confidential channels and workspaces on the server).
If you’re in contact with someone with an @mattermost.com email address, such as a recruiter or hiring manager, you can message them or your hiring manager on the server by contacting them at
firstname.lastname to let them know if you have joined.
Try some formatting
To practice sending messages in Mattermost, particularly around formatting, you can send messages to yourself to test out how messages will look before sending to another person.
We don’t currently offer internships. If you’re interested in expanding your experiences and resume, please consider joining our open source community: https://mattermost.com/contribute/
If you haven’t yet experienced the product, you should do that as a first step. Join our testing server at https://community.mattermost.com
When you apply there’s a question about your experience with Mattermost and at a minimum you should have spent some time using the product and have some opinions on what you like and we might improve.
If you are technical, we hire about 70% of our R&D staff from our open source community. If you want to increase your odds further, please consider trying a beginner or intermediate open source contribution via https://mattermost.com/contribute/
Thank you for thinking of us. In general, we don’t work with agency or contingent recruiters unless they are referred from people we know who can vouch for success in working with you.
Unless you fit this criteria, we would ask you remove us from your mailing list.
