Zapier profile

How do you maintain flexibility & balance for your team?

Zapier is 100% distributed. We work asynchronously and do not have mandated core hours. Each teammate can choose the schedule that best fits their needs. We use Slack primarily, but there is no expectation on times when someone will answer. Many of us utilize Clockwise to pause notifications and create space for deep work.

How do you ensure autonomy and plan for the future?

We use OKRs for our company goal-setting. Objectives are decided at the executive level and the KRs to achieve them come from everyone at the company. We are all encouraged to participate in this process.
