    Wattpad is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate. Period.

    We have taken a leadership position on creating a culture and an organization that truly values diversity. At Wattpad, we believe cultural fit doesn’t mean culturally identical, and diversity of thought helps us to challenge one another to think big and think differently.

    Our team is as diverse and eclectic as the global Wattpad community. In case it’s not clear : we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
