If your skills fit one of these descriptions (or you reckon you’re 80% of the way there) we’d love to talk to you.
Are you a natural born hustler, problem solver and could sell chocolate to the Easter Bunny then we want to hear from you.
Are you the type of person who talks about digital campaigns and copywriting at a dinner party, if you are then hit us up!
Weirdly’s a tech startup. That means we’re scaling fast, building fast, and pushing ourselves hard. Our team reflects the communities we work in – full of diverse perspectives and backgrounds. The thing that connects us all though is an alignment on this core belief: That how fulfilled you feel in your work has a direct impact on your self-worth. That’s why we spend our skills building tools to help connect people with jobs and companies where they can thrive.
It’s also why we’re constantly checking in on our own culture. Making sure we build an environment that helps us all live full lives – with work that challenges us, outside hobbies and projects that replenish us, and families and friends that get much better than our exhausted scraps at the end of each day.
If you had to, you could sum our values up as “Be nice and work hard”.
Our own values are grounded in our start as a Kiwi organisation. Our four founders come from diverse backgrounds and are pretty typical NZ’ders – great at dreaming up huge ideas, never-give-up optimists and awkward about tooting their own trumpets.
But more importantly, they’re super-aligned on the idea that being really clear about our values means everyone who works at Weirdly, knows what kind of ship they’re on. These values inform everything – the kind of environment we work in, the projects we prioritise, the way we interact with each other.
Transparency is about exposing truth. We don’t hide, we uncover and share so everyone can make more informed decisions.
We’re fans of people. Everything we build is designed to positively impact lives. We encourage and build people up. We’re not cynical, we’re optimists.
We reckon great design challenges, inspires and clarifies – whether you’re designing beautiful UI, finely crafted sales pitches or elegant code. We also just like things that look nice.
Resilience, urgency and execution – they’re the cornerstones to success and we think, the foundation to making a real impact in the world.
We challenge and inspire people to work smarter, be more restless, ask the uncomfortable questions that make things (and themselves) better.
Weirdly’s guiding principle is “Never for them, without them”.
Basically this means we don’t want to be in the business of building tools and features for an audience that doesn’t have representation in our team. At the moment, our team is small and this driver to be more diverse and inclusive is a journey. Our current crew includes over 50% women. Our leadership team is currently made up of all women, with 50% representation in our advisory board and founder teams as well.
We have NZ Maori and LGBTQ representation in the leadership team as well (there’s a bit of intersectionality going on there). We’ve got parents and non-parents, highly educated and hardly educated, introverted and EXTROVERTED!! - it’s a friendly place to be a bit different.
One place we could be better is in our ethic diversity within Australia. We’re putting serious effort into forming relationships with members of the ATSI community, to both advise our product decisions and create more opportunities to identify and hire great talent.
This isn’t lip-service and we won’t hire people who can’t do the job. But we’re also constantly checking our own unconscious bias to make sure we’re not overlooking people who could be awesome additions to our team, given the chance.
