We value knowledge sharing and communication. We start each week with a team meeting to cover outstanding issues and planned work for the week, combined with daily catchups to make sure no one is hitting any roadblocks. You will also have a 1:1 meeting every 4 weeks with your manager. On different days of the week any team member may be working from home, so we keep in touch using instant messaging, video conferencing and other communication tools.
We encourage critical thinking and the exploration of new ideas. We often form cross-team special interest groups for specific topic discussions, both ongoing and for fixed projects.
We provide a diverse and interesting workload but limit single performance objectives to a max of 30%, so you will get to work on 2-3 projects depending on size and exposure to all activities of the team.
