How we run our team

We have some simple basic policies in our team:

Always open recruitment: We are always on the look out for highly motivated individuals to join our team. If you are interested in joining, we encourage you to fill out our form today.

Small team: We try to keep our team small

No team captain: We work on a flat hierarchy here. No one is above anyone here.

Work to stay: Everyone earns their keep. If you wanna stay on the team, do good work.

Self-appraisals

First, everyone chooses their own goals for the upcoming quarter. These goals are agreed upon, written down and signed.

Then every quarter (3 months) all team members are required to submit a “self-appraisal”. This is a simple one page document listing the goals and what they did towards achieving those goals, their contributions to the team, and why he/she should continue on with the team. Based on that, a decision is made to let the team member continue with the team or be let go.

Logistics of our meetings

We meet at our coach/mentor’s house in Herndon, VA

Regular meetings are held on the evenings of Wednesdays and Sundays.
