Asynchronous communication is the default. We run our company on Qatalog, which is specifically designed to facilitate this, so that helps! Synchronous meetings are used intentionally for specific use cases, often for social activities, team demos, or when we want to consolidate work done asynchronously.
Microverse is a school that helps students from all around the world become software engineers and and connect with life-changing remote and international jobs. We are the only school in the world to do this at no upfront cost using an Income Share Agreement worldwide.
Our purpose is to empower work-from-anywhere, and we do that by taking care of all the HR+IT needs of remote teams, so they can hire and run a first-class team that works from anywhere.
We are a remote-first company that has lounges in San Francisco and Portland, OR; employees in those cities can choose to WFH or come into the office in any cadence they prefer - there's no requirement to come in or be there.
We believe there's more to life than working long hours, so we focus on working smarter, not harder. By figuring out how your time is spent, you get to tweak it and live a more rewarding work-life.
For the most part, the traditional office is dead. Companies are learning to be more results-oriented, and care less and less about the number of hours people sit at their desks.
When we created our systems and workflows, our principle rule was to have a single source of truth for things. No work should ever only sit in someone's head, completely inaccessible if they weren't online.
We're asynchronous first. In detail we have two hours per day that are reserved for synchronous meetings company-wide.
We like to say we're not just distributed in space but also in time, so you can work whenever you like to meet your agreed upon monthly objectives.
I want to say that our unlimited and minimum PTO policy is very progressive. Team members can take as much time off as they'd like.
It's going to sound funny but how obsessive we are with the quality of the people we hire is the modern benefit we offer. We think of it as a perk - you're surrounded by absolutely world class people.
We adopted a four-day work week at Yac. For us, it's all about flexibility. The team is able to work from anywhere as often as you need to work, at any time.
We work 30 hour weeks, unlimited annual leave, completely flexible work hours, no hierarchy or managers.
Despite the fast pace of our products, we are proud to maintain a "marathon" mindset at work. We make time for self-growth and hobbies, never work on weekends or after hours.
We are completely remote, flex on hours and focus on breaking our work up into small bites. This enables any team member to pick up where another left off.
Instead of hiring people full-time in a role-based system (e.g. 40 hours per week), we have a team of people that work on assigned tasks whenever they'd like (and often part-time).
