Everyone at Toucan is self-motivated. Nobody babysits anyone else. We’re a fully-distributed team, so it’s critical that everyone take responsibility for their own work and keep the rest of the team informed.
Although we’re working from separate offices/bedrooms/kitchens, we feel connected. We feel connected because it’s a priority of ours. Naturally, we leverage Toucan for everything from 1-on-1s to all-hands to socials. And when we get together, we don’t just talk about work. For better or worse, we know as much about each other as typical office mates. When we meet a new team member, one of our first questions is: “How tall are you?”.
We’re a startup, and we’re growing fast. Do we even need to mention that we’re hard-working? That doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy our down-time, though. We do. And we don’t expect everyone to be available constantly. Work-life balance is definitely an overused term, but we encourage the cliché anyway. 🙂
We are what we do. Our mantra is “do.” We apply an agile and result oriented approach to our work. Work fast, fail fast, learn fast, improve fast.
Our team is bigger than any one of us. Given our diversity of locations, knowledge, experiences, we are committed to helping each other be the best we can be. When someone needs help, they get it.
