As a remote-first company (40+ employees in 25 different cities), we ensure everyone has the tools they need to feel productive and feel connected to the rest of the team. We celebrate new hires, anniversaries, and birthdays. Our kudos slack channel is a lively one with daily posts about accomplishments, moments of humility, and mutual appreciation.
We set everyone up for success by crafting personalized onboarding plans, setting clear growth paths, and providing plenty of mentorship and opportunities along the way. People get promoted as soon as they are ready, without the need to wait several months for the next cycle.
We are transparent about all aspects of the company because we believe people do their best work with full context. Everyone knows our cash balance and can see every board deck and investor update. Everyone is welcome to contribute to all areas of the company, not just their own functional area.
We believe that the diversity of our backgrounds and perspectives contributes to our ability to build and operate a successful company. Building a diverse team began with our founders, Kat and Lalit, who are both parents and immigrants. Our team’s diversity at the leadership, board, and company level has been attractive to prospective candidates from underrepresented backgrounds, and we actively work on creating an environment that is welcoming, equitable, and inclusive to all. #bettertogether is one of our core values and our interview process ensures that each prospective employee is well-aligned with our mission to continue embracing the safe & respectful workplace we are cultivating.
To ensure pay equity, and minimize the impact of bias, we have built fair and transparent compensation bands and a numerical process for adjusting these when people are promoted. Our medical benefits help cover the cost of dependents, gender transition, and various other personal needs. Our flexible work hours enable a healthy work/life balance, and our unlimited PTO policy allows us all to properly disconnect and recharge. Over 25% of our employees are parents, and we've already had one proud new dad take advantage of our three-month parental leave.
Our company checks all of the boxes for a fast-growing startup: experienced founders, strong team, well-funded by top investors, huge market, bold vision, interesting and differentiated product.
But the main reason people join Vareto is because of the culture.
We’re a team of experienced, talented, and humble people who are intentional about building a company they are proud to be a part of. Our employees have a unique opportunity to make a meaningful impact while maximizing their learning and career growth. All that without compromising their work/life balance and overall well-being.
