B2B telecom forms the backbone of all digital commerce and communications. At Lightyear, we’re passionate about shedding light on the notoriously opaque telecom ecosystem to drive transparency, accountability, and durable change that will reshape the industry to be customer-centric, not provider-centric.
Our team and culture
In order for our mission to be authentic, we need a culture that attracts aspirational people and supports aspirational work.
Lightyear operates a remote-first, distributed working environment that allows our team members to live where they want to live and still do their work successfully. We believe that talent knows no geographic bounds, and we hire as such. We’ve cultivated a high-trust, autonomous work environment that empowers team members to drive their work forward as they see fit. We value team bonding and connections, and prioritize company time to connect both virtually and in-person through team events and retreats. We ensure that team members are able to meet family obligations and prioritize an exciting life outside of work. Most importantly, we’re guided and grounded as a team by our core values, some of which we’ve detailed below.
Lightyear's Core Values
We are egoless
We believe in operating as partners together to drive towards a common goal, with an emphasis on approachability and servant leadership.
The customer comes first
We focus on listening and understanding our customers' needs to guide our roadmap and priorities, with an openness to receiving feedback and making us better every day.
Everything is written in pencil
We strive to measure performance, use data-driven decision making, and are constantly iterating because the truth is that we are never done building.
We face difficult problems and challenges with an optimistic and creative belief that any problem can be solved.
