At Neverware, our passion is helping organizations, schools, and consumers increase access to great technology. We're always looking for enthusiastic, dedicated people who share that passion and the core values that our company, and our culture, are built upon
Our culture is offbeat and a bit hard to describe without witnessing it first-hand, but we'll do our best to summarize some key elements here. Please also check us out on our Team Page, LinkedIn, and Instagram to get to know us better.
Perhaps the biggest influence on our culture is the commitment to honesty and transparency. Yes, we may have a casual work environment, but we’re professionals, and we’ll treat you like one too. We don’t have set working hours, or a dress code, or set vacation or sick time. Instead, we focus on results. We’ll give you autonomy and room to run, with the caveat that honesty and transparency are baked into our DNA. We meet weekly on Monday mornings for each department to review relevant stats, numbers, and updates. There are daily stand-ups for teams to check in with each other. And each month at our company meeting, we review big picture items, including our sales results and our company finances.
We're hiring for certain specific roles, and always interested in speaking with talented people interested in what we're building, so feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org regardless of whether there are current open jobs for you or not.
I have been working at Neverware full-time (More than 3 years)
In my experience, Neverware is built on treating employees like adults. There are growing pains, but overall this has created a remarkable culture.
Time off and working from home are self-managed and largely governed by an honor-system. That allows work/life balance to co-exist with the kind of passion and (occasional) above-and-beyond effort that helps young companies succeed.
The team is still small and very meticulous about new hires, but that's partly because everyone here could go get an easier job with less "dirty work", and is staying here to be part of something unique.
Maybe not everyone's thing, but where else will you get to work on a desktop OS without being part of a mega-corporation?
It isn't AI, ML, AR, VR, or any other sexy industry trend. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The company is still in an awkward-teen-phase when it comes to establishing good managers providing the structure people need. It's happening.

Make it count.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Neverware (New York, NY) in November 2013.
Series of interviews including a general cognitive interview (i.e. some brain teasers), a technical interview meant to test knowledge of linux (bash), python, and networking essentials, and a "topgrading" interview asking detailed questions about your employment history, meant to judge your professional character.
