Look to drive impact in all that we do
We empower our teams around a common purpose. Teams are aligned with the cross-functional disciplines they need to succeed and given ownership and autonomy over their roadmaps and project execution.
Our OKR framework provides clarity around shared objectives, allows teams to better understand how to achieve impact, and helps with strategic alignment across teams. #purpose, #goalSetting, #OKRs
Be generous with your time and knowledge
We value collective knowledge and with that comes the generosity and openness to share knowledge and expertise. Best practices for the fundamentals of engineering are embedded across all teams and disciplines.
We are passionate about all-things tech. Through demos, guilds and other forums, we get together to discuss what teams are working on, the latest-and-greatest technologies and what’s going on in the industry. #teamWork, #guilds, #demos, #openSource
Distributed workers are first class citizens
We champion a work environment where our people work where and when they are most productive. While we’re not fully distributed, this means everyone acts as if they are. We use asynchronous communication as our default setting, maximising focus-time for deep work and minimizing interruptions, drive-by discussions and offline whiteboard sessions in the office.
Across Earnest, we use a range of work practices and tools to support our async goals and endorse distributed workers as first class citizens. #async, #transparency, #tooling
Fail fast, learn and move on
We make every effort to embed discovery, innovation and experimentation into our DNA to allow for data-driven decision making. We encourage teams to prototype, fail-fast and continuously iterate using various Agile practices.
We carve out time for investigation on projects outside our day-to-day that have high impact potential and allow for collaboration with people from other teams.
We host bi-annual Hackathons to foster this culture where teams have carte-blanche to work on fun projects – it gets very competitive! #continuousImprovement, #experimentation, #innovation, #hackathon
