We see team diversity as a competitive advantage
We have one of the most colorful and diverse teams in Silicon Valley. Building a diverse team feels good and makes Womply a more interesting place to work, but it’s also good for business. We’ve invested early in culture, people, and process to create a place where high performers can thrive regardless of their background, gender, race, country of origin, or religion. Our investments in culture and professional development make our people more effective and satisfied, which has many positive effects for our business.
We invest time and money to recruit candidates with diverse backgrounds
We have open and candid conversations about getting diverse candidates into our hiring funnel. We cast a wide net for talent so we can hire better quality candidates, faster. Our already diverse team tends to refer diverse candidates for consideration and our recruiters and hiring managers actively seek diverse candidates who may offer unique, new perspectives. We believe a diverse team helps us build better products for our diverse customers. There’s much more outreach for us to do but we’re committed to choosing from under-represented groups to find the best talent.
We apply the same high standards during our interview and selection process to all candidates for a given position
We are creating high performance teams made up of passionate individuals. As such we evaluate candidates to determine who is most likely to deliver results and we apply those standards uniformly across applicants and interviewees. We consider cultural fit with particular emphasis on alignment with our values. We don’t trivialize this issue, because it’s very important and hard to get right.
We invest in policies and benefits that match the workforce we want, not the one we have
We aim to welcome, challenge, and support every member of our future team so they can deliver exceptional long term results. To do that we need the right culture, policies, and benefits.
Our values form the backbone of our culture. They describe what behaviors we value most in our colleagues and they give us a common vocabulary so we can articulate it when things go well or get off track.
Policies & Benefits
Our policies and benefits include things like flexible time off, maternity and paternity policies, and more. Gender diversity is particularly important to us and something that we have proactively addressed with benefits. We expect to hire working mothers and fathers so we have policies that anticipate those hires.
