An Insider's view of Literati

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

You do the work, so you deserve the rest. Your individual work-life balance will vary based on the team that you work with, but in Customer Support, our associates can expect to regularly have a 40-hour work week and be paid time-and-a-half for extra hours worked. We also have regularly scheduled work-from-home hours!

Ashley Horton

Sr Customer Support Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We pride ourselves on being a small team in order to stay nimble, so collaboration across teams is as easy as turning around and chatting with colleagues a few desks away. We’ll break out for working sessions as we dig into specific projects, gathering feedback from key stakeholders in order to set a roadmap in motion.

Mike Tully

Sr Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Humility, grit, courage, and dedication (on a cellular level) to building the world’s most beloved literary brand. Expertise in one’s craft is critical, but an expert with a beginner’s mind is far more likely to innovate in unprecedented ways. As stewards of the book object, our team’s success rests in our ability to sow empathy at every turn.

Kelly Carroll

Co-Founder/Creative Director

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One thing I love from my time at Google was "20% time" which allows people to spend up to one day a week working on a passion project that doesn't necessarily tie into the roadmap. Just eliminating all process and approval is a critical first step. Innovation looks absurd out the gate.

Jess Ewing

CEO

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office space is for makers who answered the call to adventure. We thrive at the intersection of artisan-crafted daydreams and cutting-edge tech. You’ll see people that are laser-focused on driving progress to OKRs. We think for ourselves, understand how our strategies impact others, and never settle for less than world-class brand experiences!
