Diversity and Inclusion
We're committed to diversity and inclusion and are mindful of incorporating them into all aspects of our company. New ideas and perspectives come from diverse ways of seeing and thinking. MaxMind is sensitive to all individuals and viewpoints and believes everyone’s contributions and opinions are valuable assets to our team.
We hold regular diversity and inclusion meetings and conduct informative sessions on improving collaboration and communication. We value bringing individuals and different perspectives together within and across every department.
We encourage and sincerely welcome applications from candidates of color, women, queer candidates, candidates with family caregiving responsibilities, transgender candidates, and from other communities not well represented in the tech world.
If you have suggestions on how we may better promote or express our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we would love to hear from you. Please send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Culture of Peers
To deliver quality results for our customers, we recognized early on that we are one team and we work best when we work together. Knowing each other as people rather than just co-workers is one of the keys to our success. The members of our team are encouraged to be themselves, free to express their opinions, and to define goals and objectives collectively. We work hard to make sure every voice is heard (even the quiet ones).
As a company, many of us work remotely, so it’s natural that technology plays a major role in our daily communication. The process works because, at its core, our workplace is based on trust. Everyone, wherever we are located, trusts each other to get their work done, showing faith in each other and giving peers the flexibility to work how they want.
The long-term success of our business depends on our ability to attract and retain the best people and treat them well. We foster meaningful career paths for employees and create an environment where people feel that all aspects of their work and personal lives are being supported. Portions of our budget are dedicated to team building activities, social gatherings and an annual cross-departmental summit. We even have a cross-departmental group which meets regularly to come up with unique ways for employees to have fun. Every year, we hold a holiday dinner, a baking contest, a charitable event, and are always open to new company events.
Working Together Remotely
MaxMind employees are distributed across the U.S. and Canada. We have team members who work from home, remote offices, and our Waltham office. We've had remote employees since 2006 and the practices and processes to support remote work have expanded as the company has grown.
Key to enabling this is communications, an emphasis on sharing information, and using tools and mechanisms which support team members in different time zones. We use Slack for messaging, Google Docs for collaboration, Google Meet for meetings, GitHub Enterprise for source control, wikis and knowledge bases, as well as Pivotal Tracker for user stories. Many teams - whether functional or project based - meet daily and use shared documents to enable threads of discussions across the team. Social and business Slack channels let people interact with each other and share advice, ideas, or simply interesting things they’ve found online.
We offer compensation and benefits packages that support our employees in many aspects of their lives.
US benefits include medical, dental, vision, life and disability, reimbursement accounts (flexible spending & dependent care), and a Safe Harbor 401(k) plan with employer contribution.
Our Canadian benefits package covers employees for comprehensive benefits including life, health, dental, vision, short and long-term disability, critical illness, and accidental death & dismemberment.
All employees also have access to an employee and family assistance program which provides support to employees and their families so that they can manage work, health, and life challenges.
We offer paid time off for a broad range of categories, including, but not limited to, vacation, sick time, parental leave, bereavement, jury duty, and voting.
We provide telecommuting options and understand that balancing home and work responsibilities can be challenging so we offer a flexible work schedule built around core hours.
Furthermore, we offer an annual professional and development budget as well as days off for personal development for our technical staff.
