Qualdesk is redefining how product, design and engineering teams work together.
We’re building a platform that combines the power of a spreadsheet with the flexibility of a whiteboard, connected to all of the tools people already use. We’re making all enterprise software truly collaborative.
We want our tools to allow people to work naturally and fluidly, supporting human thinking and interaction rather than getting in the way. This creates big expectations both about the front-end experience and the way we deal with data and integrations, and we’re looking for people who can help us tackle these challenges.
We want to build a team at Qualdesk that’s diverse and inclusive, and we’re committed to continuous improvement in this practice.
Qualdesk is still a young company. Our values and culture are still evolving, and what is true today may not be true in the future. We encourage every member of our team to help us shape what we believe and the way we work.
Here are seven things that are important to us now:
We build our products for the people who use them; they’re a source of great ideas, and a community we rely on to guide our decision-making processes. We don’t build technology for technology’s sake.
We have a big vision and want to realise it wholeheartedly. We challenge ourselves to think bigger and to do more.
We assume that everyone always does their best. Our approach to leadership is about giving people the support they need, and then getting out of the way.
We move decisively, not just quickly. We’re open with each other so that we can learn from our mistakes and keep moving. We know that it’s okay to be embarrassed with what we’ve built today because we can always improve tomorrow. Failing is the best opportunity to learn.
We write things down. We are respectful of people’s time and don’t demand that they spend time with us when it isn’t needed. Equally, we know when scheduling a meeting is the best way forward and we get better at making those impactful. This helps us work more flexibly and allows people to work together across cities, countries and time zones.
We’re building products for the whole world. As we grow, the diversity of experience, origin, and culture within our team will have a direct impact on our ability to build the best products for our users. And the most enjoyable place to work.
We use the same iterative, adaptive, evidence-based and people-centric approach to determine both what we build and how we work together.
