Patreon is the best place for creators to build exclusive content and community for their fans. We enable creators (podcasters, writers, musicians, illustrators, etc) to connect with their fans directly and make money from their creative work. Creators can sell one-off items from their own shops or offer recurring monthly memberships with exclusive access to their work.

There are over 250,000 active creators earning on Patreon and over 10 million members. Our goal has always been to help creators achieve financial freedom doing what they love - and we're leaders in the space, having sent over $3.5 billion to creators since our inception. We’re continuing to invest heavily in building the most talented team in the Creator Economy and are looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to support our mission.
