Working arrangements

Flexible working

You can work where you want, when you want, however you want. Just don’t abuse the trust you’ve been given.

Most people spend 3 days a week in the office, so they can catch up with the team and attend face to face meetings. If you’re working from home, please keep an eye on Slack (more on Slack etiquette here), and attend meetings via Skype or conference call.

Core office hours are between 10am and 4pm. Daily stand ups at 10am.

If you have personal engagements to attend to, that’s fine. Just make sure your availability (or unavailability) is logged in your Outlook calendar.

Timesheets

Log your hours in Harvest. This helps us know how we are spending our time, as well as updating our customers on project costs. 

Make sure your timesheet is always up to date at the end of a sprint and the end of a calendar month, when we run our reports. If team members don’t do this, our information is inaccurate, which can lead to some sticky conversations.

You should only work additional hours in an emergency, or with prior consent from your line manager (unless you’re doing it for the sheer love of it and don’t expect to be paid).

Sickness and annual leave

If you are ill, let your team and manager know before 10am.

If you need to book annual leave, discuss the dates with your team first, then get sign off from your line manager.

Don’t forget to log these dates in your Outlook calendar and in Harvest.

Dress code

There is no dress code. We want you to be comfortable, so dress in a way that suits you… but please make sure you are clean. 

We expect people to use their initiative and dress in a professional manner when demoing to customers or representing the team at conferences and events.
