It's just been announced that Gearset is one of the best places to work in the UK 🎉🤩🚀! We're super thrilled with the award from Great Places To Work (GPTW) recognizing Gearset as one of the UK's Best Workplaces. To enter the GPTW ranking for the first time ever and make it into the top ten for our category (small organizations) is a real honour. Huge congratulations and a big thank you to all of the Gearset team 🙏 for making our workplace culture one of the best!
We collaborate with each other
We’ve built a collaborative culture that thrives on feedback, both from colleagues and our end users. We work together closely within teams and across the company, to produce our best possible work. We keep everyone up to speed with what everyone else is working on, and how the company is doing.
We equip and support everyone
We make sure everyone has everything they need to work how they want. If you need as many monitors as you can fit on your desk, that’s no problem. The same goes for books, software, or whatever else you might need.
We enjoy working together
We don't do bean-bag chairs and nerf guns, because stuff like this is much better.
We steer well clear of the ‘corporate fun-day’ atmosphere. There are various things we enjoy doing together regularly: climbing, baking (well, eating each other’s baking), gaming, walking, football, juggling, etc. On top of the everyday stuff, we also do things we like the look of too, such as theatre trips and the Cambridge Beer Festival.
Gearset has been recognised as a centre of Excellence in Wellbeing for our culture that values staff wellbeing and mental health.
Employee wellbeing is a kay foundation of the culture we've built, and something we strive to champion every day. It's an incredible achievement for Gearset to have been recognised in this prestigious field and we'll continue to keep doing everything we can to keep Gearset a `Great Place to Work` for our truly wonderful Gearset family.
I have been working at Gearset full-time (Less than a year)
Gearset doesn't just talk the talk, it really does care about its values, its employees and its customers. Joining Gearset means joining a family of smart, friendly and committed people who just enjoy working together to deliver the very best they can. We help each other, we learn from each other and we have fun together. Everyone is valued for the unique contribution they make to the team. Every day is exciting, as the company is growing fast and people are encouraged to take ownership and go beyond what even they themselves might have thought was possible. It's exciting and rewarding.
There aren't any cons.
Advice to Management
You've built the best startup anyone could have imagined based on trust and a shared culture - don't break it! Prove that Gearset can scale up without losing what makes it special to work here!
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gearset (Cambridge, England).
Started with a 30-minute phone conversation, no technical or skill questions, just a fairly casual chat about what each of us were looking for.
Then, got a fairly straightforward skills task to do at home. It was just the right balance of being in-depth enough to be able to show off my skills, without being something you need to sink loads of time into.
There was then a 2-3 hour skills interview in person, where my task was reviewed, and I was given additional tasks to solve off the cuff on pen and paper.
Finally, on another day, a separate 2-3 hour interview for team fit with different people than before, where it was another rather casual conversation about life and work philosophies, tying it off with an office tour.
At no point during the interview process did I feel nervous, tested or pressured. It was quite a pleasant process overall. Importantly, each stage was a two-way conversation; not only were they keen to assess whether you're a good fit for them, they were also quite open about your chance to assess whether they were a good fit for you.
