How we work
Our team is predominantly based in Edinburgh and we have been working remotely since March 2020. We do morning check-ins and our meetings over zoom and communicate throughout the day on slack. We also regularly use google workspace, notion, canva, mailchimp, typeform, wordpress, strikingly, mighty networks and most major social media platforms. If you have prior knowledge of any of these, great! If not, we can get you up to speed very quickly, so don’t worry.
We believe in providing a safe space for our team to grow and flourish. All ideas, thoughts and opinions are welcomed as we work collaboratively. We generally work a four-day week and have a flexible working policy. We believe this allows people greater ownership of productivity and provides a greater sense of accomplishment and quality of life.
