As stewards of the Polkadot and Substrate ecosystem, Parity is laying the
foundation for a better web which respects the freedom and data of individuals
and empowers developers to create better services through decentralized
technology. The internet is too important to billions of people for it to be
at the mercy of a few powerful companies.
Like Polkadot, Parity was built on a foundation of being decentralized and
open, which trickles down to how we work. We're a distributed organization and
have been from the beginning. Being distributed isn't just a way of doing
business—it's a mentality that is at the core of our culture. We have a flat
structure that pushes power to the edges and empowers our people to take
ownership of their role, authority coupled with responsibilities.
