We think behavior matters more than words
These are the core behaviors we strive to imitate on our team.
Don’t wait for subordination or corporate forced compliance. Proactively take responsibility, learn, and move forward.
Anyone can create and document a new process, but few are capable of understanding how they influence other teams and processes.
Identify your known knowns, and your known unknowns, so you’ll be prepared your unknown unknowns.
We focus on decomposing big decisions into tiny agreements that we’re capable of keeping and getting our arms around.
We believe the inputs and outputs of multidisciplinary teams create outstanding business and customer outcomes.
Building a latticework of mental models prepares you to make complex decisions. Discover new mental models and train yourself how to use them.
You have worth outside of the results of one particular decision. We believe the incremental learnings that come from failures lead to successful outcomes.
We ensure the entire team is able to understand what decisions were, why they were made, and their corresponding outcome.
We know that you most likely are working in technology because you're passionate about the possibilities, but we do everything we can to pay you fairly and competitively.
Artifact covers 100% of the cost of your medical, dental, and vision insurance premiums.
We want you to be physically, emotionally, and financially secure. An important step towards that is putting a little bit of cash away for retirement.
We trust you to negotiate and plan your time off with your team. Take the time off that you need, so you can be a healthy and happy person.
Artifact uses a fancy little vacation savings account service called Donde. Artifact will match travel contributions to Donde 100% up to $100/mo.
We’re a distributed company. We know schedules and environments are different for everyone. We don’t hold office hours, we just trust you’ll make appropriate agreements with your team.
Every employee gets a corporate expense card to use, because you’re an adult. (Unless you’re a child prodigy, and then we’ll talk about it.)
We’ll pay for your work equipment and machines.
Expense your Audible Premium membership or spend up to $15 each month on books.
Expense up to $25 each month on snacks for your home office.
Expense up to $100 each month on activities (dinner, movie, skiing, boating, golfing, etc.)
Expense up to $100 each month on your phone bill.
Startups are difficult and they need talent to be around long enough to execute against organizational priorities and strategic initiatives. They're also a lot of work— so we feel you should be asymmetrically incentivized for your hard work. We make our employees owners, so they can harvest the benefits of a growing business.
