An Insider's view of 15Five

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work Life integration is how we think of supporting our people. As much as we'd like to draw a dividing line between work & life, it just isn't real. "Life" happens during traditional working hours. We hire humans that want freedom to do their work how & when they best do it & take responsibility of stewarding the company & culture to success.


Chief People & Culture Officer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

A challenge is determining when to invest in scale. Due to our team size, we have to balance the right build for the moment (experiment vs. sure things vs. crunch). A great part of our team has been approaching this as a collaborative effort, and prioritizing the challenges as them come up.


Software Architect

What makes someone successful on your team?

We value diversity of thought, experience, & talent. What makes someone successful on the team is the intrinsic motivation to always get 1% better every day, the ability to critically think to solve problems, & a competitive spirit while also bringing up others around them. Our team is built on the foundation of best self management.


Manager, Sales Development

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We encourage team members to identify gaps & design solutions for the gaps. Team members have the autonomy to propose & implement solutions for their teams. We also implemented no internal meetings on Thursdays so team members can have time for deep work & creative flow. Some teams have a recharge day, where each team member focuses on development.


VP of People & Culture

What projects are you most excited about?

Performance reviews, or what we call Best-Self Reviews, are a chance to voice feedback, highlight wins, & learn of what could be done better. I love that I have a hand in designing these experiences so everyone has the opportunity to review and be reviewed in a psychologically safe manner that promotes growth on all levels.
