What you get from us
We value knowledge sharing and communication. Each week we have a team meeting where the team has catch-ups to cover outstanding issues and planned work for the week. You will also have a 1:1 meeting every week with your manager. We have frequent presentations from anyone in the company on a wide range of topics from technical demos to project management to mental health. On different days of the week any team member may be working from home, so we use tools like Microsoft Teams to keep in touch.
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 workload. Everyone on the team has responsibility for responsibility for their assigned tasks, but we limit individual performance objectives to a max of 30%, so you will get to work in multiple areas with different team members. We promote a healthy work/life balance. Work outside of standard hours is rare and agreed in advance. We take the care of our team members' mental health seriously.
