We’re currently working on the recruitment page, one of the tasks to come out of the capacity fixing project. One thing that would help the page out is getting testimonials from team members. When you get a bit, can you write up your feelings about working at OpenCraft?
I wrote this Glassdoor review, but I think the format is way too long to include in the slot allocated in the design (and for our site, they really shouldn’t be long-winded anyway).
Maybe each testimonial could focus on a different aspect of OpenCraft, so that we cover the range of reasons why we work here? e.g.
Open First & Open Source
Supportive amazing team
Large user base
Self-managed, flat, evolving structure
Remote, flexible, asynchronous
Independent, self-directed work
Good pay and raises
I can kick this off:
“Working on Open Source means I’m building my portfolio in public where anyone can see – potential clients, colleagues, employers, everyone. It was unnerving at first to take this risk, but Open First promotes quality, collaboration, and kindness. It’s worth it!”
“OpenCraft fully embodies its values, and provides a remote and mostly asynchronous workspace that allows you to truly focus on your work, when you want to. You’ll take important decisions, and will be constantly be challenged, in the right way. You’ll work with high-profile clients whose names will look good on your resume. The team is hard-working, brilliant, and very supportive — I couldn’t ask for better colleagues.”
Feel free to shorten if needed, and/or improve the language
So @cassie has them all in one place, here’s mine as well:
“This has hands-down been my favorite place to work. The team takes its remote, open, and flat structure seriously. We do excellent work, and I know I can depend on my team mates. If there’s anything I don’t like about the company, I can work with my teammates to change it, and have done so on more than one occasion.”
“OpenCraft is an amazing company to work with. Open first culture is taken very seriously here and is one of the best part of the organization. I get to work with a bunch of very talented people and I feel very fortunate to be a part of the team”
