Mission and Values
At Slab, we believe that knowledge is the foundation of any organization's success. When a team's collective knowledge is more accessible, that team's potential is limitless.That's why we're making the workplace a source of learning and purpose through knowledge-sharing. Our product helps teams easily create, organize, and discover knowledge across the entire company, from non-technical to tech-savvy. Thousands of customers rely on Slab across their entire workforces, including Asana, Benchling, and Fivetran.Each day, we are creating a lasting impact, applying deliberate company values:
Stay lean - We strive for the greatest possible impact with the fewest number of employees. We scale first with technology and process, before adding people. Think rigorously - We act and execute after careful thought and examination of known information while acknowledging the risks accepted in their absence. We don't pretend we always have the best of both worlds. Say no - We aim to deliver exceptionally high value in a small set of focus areas. We willingly abstain from good ideas to give only the most promising paths the attention they deserve.Read more about our core values at: https://slab.com/about/#values
We're currently a team of 8 full-time employees, distributed across the North America, Europe, and Asia, with plans to grow to 25 by end of next year.
Women in Leadership
Our operations, customer success, and business development leaders are women, one of whom was hired through Elpha! We are committed to continually hiring and promoting women into critical leadership roles at Slab.
Work / Life Balance
Slab's goal is to provide a healthy, flexible, and productive environment where you can do your best work sustainably. We are fully remote, with no regularly-scheduled work hours when employees have to be online. We document our processes (guess where 😜), use Slack asynchronously, and only have one weekly all-hands meeting.
Benefits & Perks
We run performance and compensation reviews annually, along with a lighter weight version mid-year that is not tied to compensation. Our weekly 1:1 format also rotates between a few themes, one of which is focused on feedback, in order to provide regular touchpoints throughout the year.Similarly, 360-degree reviews are conducted annually for founders by their respective coaches.
HR-related matters are handled by the founders directly, with a three-person committee reviewing our People initiatives weekly.
Team Culture & Bonding
Slab holds virtual team events every month to allow us to unwind and spend some time together in a social, non-work context. Recent events include a Zombie apocalypse scavenger hunt, a beginner acrylic painting class, a Harry-Potter-themed murder mystery, and tarot readings.We also maintain some social Slack channels where teammates can post content related to any topics that interest them. Some examples include #plants-and-pets for pictures of our flora and fauna babies, and #books-and-movies-club for debates like whether the newest Batman movie is really necessary.
We aim to provide a positive experience regardless of outcome, firstly by being practical, transparent, and responsive. While we tailor the specifics of the interview process to each role, they follow a general structure:Please meet your potential future colleague: @rebeccaa, @delaneywiden
