Directory of Co-operatives

Outlandish is around 15 collaborators and co-owners who love humour, quality code, and apps that challenge the status quo. We specialise in using the web for ambitious and innovative purposes. Working with our clients, we have helped social movements organise, made academic research relevant, and got thousands of people to read poetry.
Outlandish is an experiment in what it is to run a worker co-operative in the tech industry. We can’t say that we have completely figured it out, but we are getting better. Our long-term aim is to build a network and support services that make it easier for developers and designers to make a living while working for social change.
We find Outlandish a great place to work. We work with some large commercial clients, and the surplus we make is invested back into our organisation and others that share our mission. This means that everyone at Outlandish has the chance to train themselves, or work on projects for social impact that would otherwise be hard to fund. We also take workplace democracy seriously. Even though we love agile management, there are no bosses.
Outlandish is growing, with many opportunities for talented developers, designers, project managers and product owners to get involved. We work flexibly with both our freelancers and our members, either part-time or full-time.
