Wistia fosters a work environment that is outcome oriented. That means flexible working hours, work from home enablement, unlimited vacation time, and fun team outings like “Wiskia” (our annual all-company ski trip). We are also committed to providing a parent friendly environment with all of the above, as well as 16 weeks of paid parental leave for both primary and secondary parents.
At Wistia, teams are involved in goal setting and everyone works a little differently. Our office is physically arranged with a variety of settings from quiet and isolated to social and collaborative. We’re always working to optimize how we hold meetings to be as inclusive as possible for remote workers.
To foster an environment where everyone can bring their fullest selves to Wistia every day, we've put an organization-wide focus on DE&I. After bringing in external experts in 2018, we took what we learned and created our own cross-functional DE&I-focused group to push things further. By placing DE&I alongside our other company goals and objectives, we're setting ourselves up for long-term learning and improvement.
We recently launched a DE&I page
on our website with the aim of transparency and a sense of urgency. We encourage you to take a look to learn more, and also subscribe to our new podcast - A Better Workplace
To name just one, we leverage a tool called 15five to facilitate consistent weekly feedback conversations, as well as larger review cycles. In 15five, teams can see the company goals, department goals, team goals, and their own personal weekly goals.
