RStudio’s mission is to create free and open-source software for data science, scientific research, and technical communication. We do this to enhance the production and consumption of knowledge by everyone, regardless of economic means, and to facilitate collaboration and reproducible research, both of which are critical to the integrity and efficacy of work in science, education, government, and industry. We are a different kind of software company, and we’re proud to build and sell products that help people understand and improve the world through data.

Founded in 2009, our team has grown steadily over the last several years with the release of new products and a widening base of both enterprise customers and open-source users. We are a remote-first organization of ~240 people, distributed across the United States, Canada, UK, Australia, and Europe, and we have plans to continue to expand our team in the next year.

The Finance team provides high quality, timely, accurate, clear and complete financial reporting, analysis and financial information in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations and U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles to meet the Company’s internal, external and regulatory financial reporting obligations. We operate with high-integrity and provide all stakeholders with responsive, direct, and honest communication to help drive decision making processes across the company.
