Our Mission

Fix B2B telecom. Telecom is an antiquated, static industry where vendors often get across-the-board negative reviews from customers and are averse to change. That said, telecom is a highly consequential, multi-$tn space that powers how we interact digitally. Everyone at Lightyear is excited about being one of the few drivers of real, positive, durable change in telecom.

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.
