Culture:

Like every company, we have an acronym that conveys the most important aspects of the culture we strive to have, ours is PACTS:

Practicality: Am I incrementally improving something or delaying perfection?

Ambition: Am I staying in my comfort zone as opposed to learning and communicating what is necessary to solve the real challenges?

Clarity: Is my audience understanding what I'm communicating?

Trust: Am I being sincere and trusting others to do the same?

Service: Am I expecting more from myself than from others?

This acronym is only as useful as the integrity of the people who reference it and believe in it. Every person at Feathr will face challenges, the most important quality is a commitment to work through those challenges with self-awareness and honesty.

Office:

Feathr has made the decision to return to the office after operating remotely throughout the pandemic for over a year. In making this decision, we kept our team's health and safety as a top priority, and with added sanitary stations around the office and over 90% of The Flock being vaccinated, we feel it is the right and safe time to "migrate" the team back to The Nest (our office).

Feathr is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive and equitable environment for all employees. So, however you identify and whatever background you bring with you, if you think you'd drive value in this position, please apply.
