WebAble Culture Code

Herunterladen, um offline zu lesen

WebAble is a young company built on a strong foundation of culture. We believe pay-checks and perks are important, but that is not why we come to work every morning. Security and recognition keep us alive, but passion and creativity are worth dying for. This deck summarises key elements of our cultural foundation.

It was created for internal use, but recently we decided to share it with public to help our partners, patrons and prospective employees understand us better.

  1. 1. WHY DOES WEBABLE EXIST? Ten years from now, will you remember the emails, the meetings or your marketing budgets and targets? Guess not. But we bet you will remember how all this made you feel today: excitement, anxiety, glory, pride! WebAble exists to empower brand experiences with simple technologies. Our mission is to simplify technology to create WebAbulous brand experiences that drive results. We believe in creative strategies which are backed by data; content which is not only brilliant, but also effective; and most importantly measuring impact of work to maximize return on investment.
  2. 2. OUR PRINCIPLES Simplification We believe less is more. We make things simple to use, not just simple to look at. Collaboration We love to co-create.

Data-driven We simplify an amazing array of user data to implement what works best for your audience. End-user centric We put your end-users first and create a fabulous brand experience for them. Permanent beta We are open to new ideas and experiments. We learn rigorously and teach religiously.

  16. 16. SEE SELF IMPROVEMENT AS A HABIT •  You are conscious of your current level of productivity and know that if you’re not becoming better at what you do everyday, then you need to change things •  You have a higher expectation of yourself than WebAble does of you •  You generate ideas for and execute personal development activities with and for your team. You make it a habit. •  You are comfortable about stepping out of your comfort zone and learn from mistakes •  You don’t make the same mistakes thrice "Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything."  - George Bernard Shaw
  17. 17. HIRE “A” PLAYERS •  You hire “A” players because they are self motivated, driven and seek challenge; you can learn from them and entrust them with difficult tasks •  You incentivize people rather than control them •  You hire for the company and recommend people to visit us given the answers to these questions are “YES” –  Would you like to work with him/her? –  Will you learn from him/her? –  Can this person embrace our culture? “Mediocre colleagues or unchallenging work is what kills progress of a person’s skills.” - Reed Hastings & Mark Randolph
  18. 18. DISCIPLINE CREATIVITY •  You develop and stick to a system, allowing for structured free thinking, creative processes and innovative work within the framework •  You allow yourself specific time, space, context, resources and systems to get creative religiously. You make it a habit •  You build highly developed systems with freedom and responsibility, thus, embedding creativity and innovation at the core of your work “Creativity is our business, we have to build it into our systems” - Ovick Alam
  19. 19. OBSESS OVER QUALITY •  Quality is defined as work that makes you and your team proud •  You triple check every line of code, copy, alignment, color scheme and tone before shipping your work •  You don’t ship your work until you’re proud of it, you always ask “Am I proud of this work?” •  You know quality is more important than meeting deadlines, but excellence is shipping work that makes you proud; within the given deadline and resource constraints “10 years from now, no one will remember the numbers, they will remember how your work made them feel”. – Ovick Alam
  20. 20. SEEK CLARITY •  You are biased towards clarity. You double-check for urgency, importance, assumptions and tone •  You over-communicate, repeating things more times than you would intuitively •  You rephrase, ask, contextualize, point assumptions, define terms and specify deliverables; even though it’s obvious •  You write what you understood and ask for feedback to verify it “Seeking Clarity is seeking connection with the universe. To connect is to understand; to be clear is to be enlightened.” – Annie Zalezsak

BE PASSIONATE •  You teach yourself to love your job •  You care intensely about company’s success and plan company’s roadmap to excellence •  You celebrate wins and work hard to earn it •  You are never out when you are down •  You define your own success and pat yourself on your back when you do great work “It’s not just duty, it’s passion with purpose” – Amit Richard
  22. 22. BE COURAGEOUS •  You speak up even though it’s controversial •  You challenge authority, respectfully and reasonably •  You make hard decisions and take smart risks without paranoia •  You question actions inconsistent to our values and propose solutions to complex problems "Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.“ – Winston Churchill
  23. 23. LEAD WITH CONTEXT, NOT CONTROL •  You explain and embrace strategy, objectives, assumptions, transparency and facts •  You avoid imposing decisions, unnecessary approvals, committees and processes; you focus on results •  You don’t blame and try to understand the context in which an event occurred •  You use control when you are dealing with emergencies or amateur/unskilled people “The best managers figure out how to get great outcomes by setting the appropriate context, rather than by trying to control their people” - Reed Hastings & Mark Randolph
  24. 24. RESPECT AND SHOW GRATITUDE •  You respect your colleagues, clients and business acquaintances regardless of their age, gender, experience, religion and values •  You acknowledge and appreciate the open source software, photos, and learning materials which helps us everyday •  You respect work of art “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” - William Arthur Ward
  25. 25. DEFAULT TO TRANSPARENCY •  You know company’s revenue, cost structure, investments and policies and you are open about your goals, targets and projects •  You keep your project team members in the loop for all communications during your projects •  You are transparent about performance reviews, bonuses, and KPIs •  Yet, you respect company’s confidentiality policies with external stakeholders “A lack of transparency results in distrust and a deep sense of insecurity.” - Dalai Lama
