What I like about working at WeAreBrain

One of our Uber Cool Brainiacs decided to put pen to paper and share what she thinks makes WeAreBrain unique, not just as a workplace but also as space where big ideas are born.

Just like every person you meet, every company has its own brand. For instance, if you ask someone to tell you right away three words they have in mind when they think of Starbucks, the majority will most likely answer to the effect of coffee, service and atmosphere.

And if you ask me the same question about WeAreBrain, my answer would be trust, freedom and intelligence.

On one of my first days at the company, my colleague Alex Litvinov said to me: “All of us at WeAreBrain will trust everyone no matter if they’re new or have they been working together for ages — unless the trust is broken for whatever reason”. I really love this approach, as it’s a unique mindset. Most companies don’t trust new employees and people usually have to spend months or even years to prove they are trustworthy.

There is a quote by Steve Jobs which I really enjoy. He said, “It doesn’t make sense to hire smart people and then tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do”.

I’m so happy to say the top management team is on the same wavelength as Steve Jobs and me 🙂

If you continue to feel trusted, you get a feeling of freedom. Without freedom it would be so hard to be creative, wouldn’t it?

This trust is spread throughout the entire company. But if you ask me what’s behind this trust I would say it’s believing in the fact we work with highly intelligent people. And it changes everything, really!

I was wondering what associations you personally have when if you think of WeAreBrain. Leave your comments below!

Thanks for reading!
