Culture:

Feathr defines culture as the secret sauce that makes our flock members want to come to work everyday and do their best work. Like every company, we have an acronym that conveys the most important aspects of the culture we strive to have.

  • 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.

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.
