What is the company culture like at Ably?

Pros

Great management/ culture - everyone is trusted to own and get on with their tasks to contribute to the company's fast growth, and everyone does just that! The result is a flexible working culture, where stuff also gets done to a high standard. It's an exciting industry to work in, with a sense of a company 'on the up', and an industry (realtime data transfer infrastructure) catering for a visible niche in the market. 5 stars for everything looks suspicious, but can honestly say haven't worked anywhere with such a fantastic culture.

Cons

Hard to say - we are hiring and in a period of change. Maintaining this culture at scale will depend on new hires and tweaking current processes.

Advice to Management

Everything good, scaling up will require some tweaks to process.

How do employees feel about the requirements to work at Ably?

Pros

At Ably you're given responsibility from the get-go. You're trusted to get on with your work, while at the same have access to a great workplace culture with a management team who genuinely cares about employee growth and experience. As a result, there's a really healthy feel to the team. Working here currently involves wearing a few different hats, and the role itself can be challenging. This is a great way to learn new skills and feel like you're tangibly developing in your career. The company is small enough that your opinion feels heard and can influence the direction of your role.

Cons

The learning curve can be steep if you don't have a technical background! But the opportunities for growth are great, and it's truly a privilege to gain insight into highly technical aspects of the business. We're in a 'middle bit' of growth and only just starting to put scalable processes in place. But being a part of this and getting a real say in the company's development is an amazing feeling.
