What it’s like working at UDisc
UDisc is a fully distributed team working from all over the United States. We have flexible schedules and stay connected using the best technology for remote workplaces.
We schedule meetings when we need them, but we always meet once a week to connect and learn what’s going on across the team. It’s not all about work (or disc golf), so we hold regular virtual get-togethers to share our interests, play games, and hang out as a team.
Our team consists of disc golfers from all levels and interests. You’ll see us take breaks to play a round on a beautiful day or try out a new release. Some of us play competitively, some of us love to watch the pros, some of us like the impact disc golf has on the world, and all of us love building the future of disc golf technology.
