We're empowering anyone to build software
This is a big mission. so, for us to get there, we have created an amazing and high performing culture for our people.
As the world becomes ever more digital and innovation becomes an expectation, our need to create is more important than ever. But we can’t just rely on people who can code, or expect everyone to learn to code. At Checkbox, we are bridging that gap by enabling the power of digital creation for the masses.
We’re a team of people who are extremely talented yet continuously lift ourselves and each other to grow to the next level, without limit. We’re extremely fast paced and have a knack at getting shit done but will always cross the finish line as a team and not just as individuals. What stands out is how deeply we care about this organisation, our customers and each other.
Our values are critical to the success and growth of our people. They determine how we communicate, make decisions, and solve problems. They are referenced frequently and genuinely. They are why people get rewarded and why people get let go. They are what our people live by, even beyond the workplace, and it makes them not just better Checkboxers, but better people. The more the values below sound like you, and describe people you want to work with, the more likely you will thrive at Checkbox.
Choosing positivity every time and believing that we are always in control of every situation allows us to be effective and a joy to work with. But while positivity is a choice, empathy is a must. At Checkbox, our interactions and decisions start with seeking a deep understanding of context and putting ourselves in the shoes of others.
We always lift each other up and add to the team morale rather than subtract from it.

We consider how our actions and decisions impact our customers and our colleagues.

We focus on moving the needle and prioritise what is important.
We tell the truth to ourselves and others, and admit our mistakes and shortcomings.

Empowered as a team.
Empowering our people to be autonomous and spark change is important to us. But whilst we are empowered as individuals, we are aligned collectively and work and play as a team, for the team.
We make time to help others succeed.
We give others the freedom, information and support to make an impact.
We share successes and failures as a team rather than as individuals.

We go that extra bit further to make the work of others easier.
We seek opportunities and take initiative to create new value.
We feel responsible for our colleagues, and keep them accountable to be their best even if it’s not what is easiest.
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” Taking risks and thinking in unconventional ways propels us forward. We are courageous but calculated. And for the shots we do miss, we continuously learn and recalibrate.
We work fast and get things done quickly.
We reflect frequently and find opportunities for improvement.
We are obsessed with personal and professional development.
We are entrepreneurial and take smart risks even when the outcome is uncertain.
