Lilfe at Our Community
We are dogmatic and passionate. We strive for fairness and we question authority. We accept increments, but strive for revolution. We use our balance sheet to create social change.
We are tolerant of risks and failures. We celebrate success and learn from our mistakes.
We believe in a work environment that allows for an authentic work-life balance. We value our flat structure: we share the cleaning as well as the decision-making.
Ethics, inspiration and innovation are at our core.
Our ideal environment is at the edge of chaos - the estuary region where rigid order and random chaos meet and generate high levels of adaptation, complexity and creativity.
We believe in a work environment that allows for an authentic life balance, that's why we offer:
- A 4 day work week (32hrs) at 100% pay
- Flexible working hours
- Modern open plan Melbourne office
- Much more
