5 things Builders love about working at Bold
Since the earliest days of Bold, we’ve worked hard to create a place where our Builders look forward to coming every day. And no, we’re not just talking about the virtual happy hours, branded swag, or the Peloton subscription (although we know these perks are pretty sweet).
We live by our BUILDERS Code; our shared set of practices, beliefs, and values that shape how we work. From this, we’ve created an intentional culture that cultivates a positive, encouraging, and supportive place for people to achieve their best. A few of the things our Builders love most about our company culture include include transparency from the top down with monthly Ask-Us-Anything panels featuring our Executive Team, 10% innovation time to work on any project you’re passionate about that helps better Bold, and Builders can also spend 20 working hours per year volunteering in the community.
If these reasons aren’t enough for you to look forward to Mondays, keep reading to find out five more things our Builders love about Bold!
1. Grow and never look back
Builders live in a world where they get the support they need to grow. Whether you want to grow as a leader, learn a new coding language, or develop the skills you need to advance your career, Bold supports you. Between the education fund and comprehensive mentorship program to opportunities for internal movement, this is a place where learning is encouraged and putting your hand up for things is admired.
Get outside your comfort zone - we’re here for it.
Bold is a place that lets you grow, and everyone wants you to succeed.
- Rebecca, Software Developer
2. Feel Balanced
Being present in both your work life and home life is important to achieve a sense of balance. We know life is busy and everyone has responsibilities; we work with our Builders to make sure they can thrive at work and at home. We offer flexible work hours, 10 personal/sick days a year, and ample vacation time to ensure our team can do their best work, every day.
3. We’re in this together
There’s one word our Builders often use when asked why they love working at Bold: collaboration.
When we win, we win together and we build each other up so that we can all succeed. If you’re having a hard time on a project, there will be no shortage of people willing to jump on a quick video chat to dive into the root of the problem and find a solution.
At Bold, we live by the saying: love the problem, not the solution. I look forward to Mondays because each week brings its own set of unique challenges and opportunities. We are all working towards the goal of empowering our brands with the best ecommerce tools.
- Rajdeep, Software Developer
4. Take the time to reflect
Some companies look at employees as a means to an end; at Bold, every single Builder is cared about, supported, and respected. One important aspect about working at Bold is taking time to reflect on how you’re doing both professionally and personally; each Builder is given that opportunity in monthly self-reflections to be open and honest with their leads about how they’re doing.
We want you to be your best and we know that goes beyond Bold.
5. Why are we here? The work!
In addition to all of these great things, Builders love the work that they do. In the fast-paced world of ecommerce, no two days are alike. It’s encouraged to work on things that drive you. Our team is always innovating to elevate Bold and our products, creating endless opportunities to work on things that motivate you.
One of our favourite company-wide events at Bold is our Innovate or Die Days; two full days dedicated to Builders teaming up, brainstorming, and creating magic on a project of their choosing that betters Bold.
You should love the work you do, we sure do!
