Where are you? We may just be there too.
New York, Dublin, Ann Arbor, floating on a boat in the Mediterranean Sea, behind that tree: if there’s a good enough internet connection, one of our employees (maybe you) might be there.
It’s so refreshing to work with a product that I truly believe in. Each customer I speak with comes to Shortcut with a specific set of challenges; and seeing them find that “a-ha” moment is a great professional joy for me.
To be honest, it's very difficult to find a bad word to say about Shortcut. I've been working here for years, and plan on staying here for years to come. The work/life balance is perfect, and with a young family, I'll be forever grateful for the amount of time I get to spend with them growing up.
It’s amazing working with awesome people, people that care, people that want to make a difference and actually want to make something great. When we talk about Shortcut, everyone on the team cares about making the best product and also striving to make the user experience better and more enjoyable.
The cross-functionality, I really like that here. Everyone works together no matter what department you're in. I've really been able to stop worrying about what other people are going to think and just go ahead and ask the question. Even if it is a stupid question, if it's really dumb, I don't have to worry that they're going to be like,
I try to work on things that make Shortcut nicer and more engaging to use and bring joy to our customers so they never want to leave. Everybody here is super nice and does good work. It's part of the culture to have a good work-life balance. I'm never leaving. Or, if I do, it’ll be because I found somewhere else exactly like it.
You'll never get me to write a quote for that website, never!
Careers at Shortcut
What do we value? Well, all sorts of things! But we particularly pride ourselves on:
Treat people right
We are respectful, thoughtful, and empathetic when interacting with each other, our clients, and our partners.
Our work should make people smile. There’s plenty of boring software in the world, we don’t need to add to the list.
We each care about how our work impacts the business. We own our decisions, take action, and independently adapt to circumstances to deliver the best possible results.
Have a bias for action
We make swift decisions and move forward quickly using our best judgment. Deep deliberation is reserved for times when our actions are irreversible.
Be open by default
We work and communicate openly, honestly, and responsibly.
What’s in it for you?
Other than the traditional arrangement in which we deposit money in your bank account twice a month, we provide:
Comprehensive health coverage
Medical, dental, and vision. Podiatry too, probably.
401k, flexible spending, and community benefits for when and if we’re allowed to go outside again.
An open vacation policy
And not a bullsh*t one where we try to trick you into taking less time off. We encourage you to regularly step away from the computer.
12 weeks off for adoption or birth. Spend time getting to know the new human in your life
Equity available for all employees
Get your own piece of the pie.Assuming Shortcut is someday worth as much as Apple, you’ll be super rich.
All the equipment you need
Unless it’s a giant drill you plan to use to break into the vault at a Vegas casino. You’ll need to pay for that yourself.
