The beliefs we share
You already know what a fulfilling life means to you. All that’s left is the means to secure it. Having a place to find work you’ll enjoy while not sacrificing your personal life is a step closer in that direction.
In many organizations, why someone gets promoted, might be more a function of charm, rather than achievements. That’s why we embrace an organizational system based on reason which values knowledge and skill.
We all want to become masters of our craft. But one does rarely get there on their own. Our cooperative members know this and support each other on their road to true engineering mastery.
Monthly income is based on your experience level and tracked hours. In order to objectively determine one’s skill level, an adaptation of the Dreyfus model of skill acquisition is applied. The minimum level required according to the scale is “Competent”, which is the intermediate level. Your experience level determines your hourly rate.
What makes you different from any outsourcing company?
Quite a lot really. We’d like to think of ourselves as the force disrupting the traditional software company. For instance, you wouldn’t be bound to a desk in an office, with a limited choice of work hours and projects to work on. There wouldn’t be a heavy corporate structure to navigate, but rather a fellowship of professionals with a true dedication to their craft willing to support you.
Would I have a secured salary?
We can guarantee a constant flow of projects to work on and when there are not enough client project we utilize your time with internal ones. The remuneration for all members corresponds to the amount of man-hours spent on a project within the cooperative. Plus all bonuses earned, of course.
What if I decide to stop working on a project?
You are not bound to a specific project. Of course, if you decide to move to another project you would have to make everything possible to ease the transition while another team member continues where you left off.
Can I work on my startup?
We encourage you to do so! Our mission is to enable more innovation happening in the world and there is nothing more exciting than seeing our cooperative members starting their own ventures. You will have all our support in that!
Can I work another job in the same time?
Yes, you can. We require our members to be able to spent at least 80 hours a month on cooperative tasks. This allows people working in traditional companies to make a smooth transition – you can keep your current job on half-time, while slowly transiting to the cooperative distributing your minimum 80 hours of work during the course of the month.
