Life at Mergify

We are a distributed, remote-first company valuing work-life balance. We organize retreats regularly, usually once a quarter, to regroup every collaborator in the same place. This allows us to work together with a high bandwidth and to get social.

Inspired by open-source best practices, we work asynchronously β€” most of the time.

Trust, Inclusion and Values

image

We trust people to organize and share their time between their work and their personal life. We understand that you need to care of items outside work. We encourage flexibility in settings your working hours to match your schedule. We know people can't be at 100% all the time. We encourage people to take PTO to recharge their batteries and take care of themselves.

Diversity, inclusion and belonging are fundamental to the success of Mergify. We aim to make a significant impact in our efforts to foster an environment where everyone can thrive. We are designing a multidimensional approach to ensure that Mergify is a place where people from every background and circumstance feel like they belong and can contribute.

We don't judge people's ideas depending on their job title. Every idea can be valuable on its own merits and must be evaluated based on their content, not based on its contributor. As we are a young company, anything is possible and on the table. There are no absolute wrong options. Everyone needs to be open to any new idea.

Hugo Escafit, Marketing Coordinator

Mergify is a benevolent environment. You can easily express yourself. The company provides everything you need to work efficiently and comfortably. You also work remotely: it’s a big perk to me to choose when and where to work.

Autonomy and Openness

We say why, not just what. Transparent changes have the reasons for the change laid out clearly along with the change itself. This leads to fewer questions later on because people already have some understanding. A change with no public explanation can lead to a lot of extra rounds of questioning, which is less efficient.

We value autonomy in every aspect of the job. That means people are free to organize their work and their time. We don't require people to have a consistent working hours nor we encourage long working hours.

We are open about as many things as possible. By making information public, we can reduce the threshold to contribution and make collaboration easier. Use public issue trackers, projects, and repositories when possible.
