An Insider's view of Work & Co

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Every day, I get to work alongside insanely talented people I respect. Our office environments are designed to help us focus on our craft — whether that be coding or digital design or strategy. We also push against burnout and discourage long hours. No time sheets. Everyone should get to be their best selves both in and out of the office.

Rafael

Design Director

What projects are you most excited about?

Creating products that launch is our priority. Having world-class design and engineering talent ensures that these experiences are beautiful and functional. Utility is also important. We always want to add value to people’s lives.

Muriel

Group Director, Product

How does the company support your career growth?

We believe in mentors, not managers. And we see mentorship as a right. At Work & Co, every employee gets a dedicated mentor from day one. Our flatter structure also means we learn from one another, informally, on an ongoing basis.

Caitlin

Managing Director, Talent

What is your vision for the company?

Work & Co's mission has been clear since day one. We exist to create —and launch— the digital products and experiences millions of people love using every day. We exist to raise the bar. Our approach is to be the best at a few things versus average at a dozen.

Marcelo

Partner, Technology
