WeWork Mission
WeWork is the platform for creators, providing hundreds of thousands of members around the world with space, community, and services that enable them to do what they love and create their life's work. Our mission is to create a world where people work to make a life, not just a living, and our own team members are central to that goal.

Technology Charter
WeWork is creating a layer of technology to power our vision of "space as a service". From identifying and designing a new location, to bringing that space to market in an elastic, easy-to-consume way, to seamlessly operating these spaces to delight our members, we are building state-of-the-art systems to automate, optimize, and improve the experience. The data we are collecting is being used to dynamically optimize utilization, pricing, even layout and form factor. This technology advantage has allowed WeWork to scale to 450+ buildings in 28+ countries and will be our rare advantage as the company continues to grow.
The Infrastructure Engineering group is part of the Developer Platform whose mission is to drive our customer's success by delivering the software, services, and infrastructure they need to build WeWork products.
