Can I work from home?
The short answer: Yes. L2 recognizes there are circumstances when it would be beneficial for employees to work at home, either on a permanent basis or in order to complete a particular task. As long as it does not adversely affect your productivity or the efficient operation of the organization, we can make this happen. However, some positions within the organization, by their very nature, do not lend themselves to working at home, so we look at each request on a case-by-case basis.
How do you promote collaboration, given people are working remotely?
Clear and timely communication is key. Project managers and team leaders organize regular stand-up meetings so each employee can share their progress toward goals and identify opportunities for other team members to lend a hand. We also utilize a number of web-based tools (e.g. Slack, Mural, Basecamp, Google Apps) that make it easy to collaborate in real-time. We often make use of video meetings in order to feel like we’re really hanging out in the break room together.
Are you a dog-friendly office?
We love dogs! We usually have a furry four-legged creature or two in our office. Each dog goes through a rigorous interview process to ensure he/she is a team player, clearly communicates his/her needs and doesn’t steal toys.
How do you keep your technology and tools current?
We make intentional investments of money and time to improve the products and services we offer. We found the best way to do this is to have a workforce that is fully engaged and up to date on current tools and trends. Some of our very best ideas come from our employees.
Would I be the sole developer on a project or is a team assigned to the project?
We believe that two (or more heads) are better than one. Our website project team includes some or all of the following: an executive sponsor, a project manager, a business analyst, a designer, and 2-3 development resources.
Is there an onboarding process? How long is it and what does it look like?
Onboarding begins on day one with your orientation to the company. Depending upon your position, onboarding may last four weeks or four months. During this time, you will learn our process and our tools and have the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills to real work. Feedback from your teammates and manager will guide your learning.
Is there a formal review process?
What we really hope you ask is “Will I get regular feedback to know how I’m doing?” That is the basis for our performance management process. We also conduct a six-month check-in with new employees to ensure the role is a good fit for you and for us. Salary and performance reviews are typically conducted on an annual basis by L2 Leadership.
Is there any travel required?
Depending upon the position, employees may be asked to travel for work to attend internal meetings (typically 1-2 times a year) and occasionally but not regularly for clients. This might include travel to our main office for employee or client meetings, onsite at a client location and/or travel for industry conferences.
Who cleans the office refrigerator?
Who do you think cleans the refrigerator? You clean it if you used it! Please don’t leave chaos in the fridge (or in your code, for that matter) for another team member to clean up. We believe in being accountable for our creations and for our messes. That goes for the refrigerator, as well as your work product.
