About Product Work Lofty
Our Product People want to grow and learn. We want to empower people and discover new difficult challenges. We charge failure and find opportunity for success, then we replicate that success in new situations as we build new teams. Product isn’t cushy, and building here means constant ascent to new heights. We aim for LOFTY, which is HARD, and we reap the rewards.

Life @ Lofty
Remote Team – Our brilliant team of engineers and operations support staff is spread across several states. We believe people get their best work done from where they want to work. That can be our nice new office in downtown Fayetteville Arkansas, a code shed in your backyard, or the back of your RV in a national park. If you can show up for meetings and get your work done, we don’t worry about where you’re working from (but we will ask for pics if it’s really cool).
Client Services – We talk about this A LOT. We work with amazing clients in really exciting industries. They’re the boss. Our entire organization is composed around the reality that we must excel at meeting and exceeding customer expectations. Anyone can build software, we help our clients and partners build the right software.
Travel – We understand how valuable your time is. We promise we won’t abuse it. There will be a moderate amount of all-hands, client on-sites, and conferences we attend each year, and we’ll make sure to have them planned well in advance. Plus, they’ll be fun. This job may require up to 25% travel.
Schedule – Take your dog for a walk over lunch, get that dental follow up scheduled, make time for school drop off. We all have rhythm and pacing to our lives, if you’re producing great work, supporting your teammates, making all meetings and engagements, and getting your hours in, you won’t hear any complaints from us.
