Zenman Cultur-ama ::
Culture is more than just Free-Lunch Fridays, but that’s a good starting place. We also have an imaginary developer named Giovanni. We’ve got some sports freaks and some gamer geeks. Some are into graphic novels, others play in local bands. And office dogs are our constant companions.
But here’s where it gets good:
- Core Hours: To reduce the “real quick question” interruption habit, and promote flow state, we reserve certain hours when developers go deep, designers design, and PMs play Tetris with Google Calendar.
- Level 10 Meetings: Same time. Same agenda. Every week. No kidding. Plus a daily standup at 8am sharp.
- Accountability Chart: For knowing who’s in charge of what and directing communication accordingly. This prevents unnecessary CCing. (Just…don’t.)
- Own vs. Rent: If your life is for rent, you don’t learn to buy. Or buy-in. Zenman people don’t just rent office space. They commit.
- Retrospectives: Every two weeks. Are you a happy face, a squiggly mouth or a sad face? Why? Zenman’s health depends on hearing what you have to say.
Zenman Story ::
When Keith Roberts started Zenman back in 1998, right after the dot-com bubble burst, it was just him, his Buddhist books, and a few skateboards. Armed with a dreamy but less-than-practical degree in undersea photography, Keith was determined to have creativity pay the bills. And it wasn’t long before they did. Across nearly two decades, Keith long ago surpassed his 10,000 hours as a designer, and helps Zenman stay true to its principle of perpetual karma, aligning right thought, right speech and right action in every project. Plus, Keith is a child of the 80s, so nothing ever gets too serious. He’s seen Ferris Bueller’s Day Off at least 400 times, is a record-breaking pinball machine champion, and likes to put together Lego sets in his office. Zenman is a reflection of Keith’s vision and values. We do great work and have fun doing it.
