    The last discussion will be around cultural alignment. You will have the opportunity to meet with Samy (co-founder) and Sara (COO) to learn more about GitBook history, ambition and culture.

👥 What it's like to work at GitBook

We joke internally that GitBook is the best kept secret. It's not always clear from the outside looking in that we're a great company, with a positive environment and fantastic team. As a People and Talent Manager you'll appreciate that over 90% of our team members report having a positive experience at GitBook. When asked how they describe our culture, this is what came up (in order of how frequently it was mentioned):
  • Supportive, approachable and friendly peers. Everyone is willing to help
  • Flexibility, truly remote company. We can choose when and where we work
  • Transparent. Open communication, feedback is listened to and actioned
  • Safe space. It's ok to fail, we can ask any questions and there's no judement
  • We care about people and treat them fairly
  • Autonomy & trust by default
Of course we can always get better, and there are some things that you might find frustrating:
  • We're still defining what success looks like for each person and this creates some confusion
  • We need to create more opportunities to socialize and connect as people
  • We're working on being more agile and iterating quicker
  • We are (ironically) not great at documentation
The great news is that optimizing our culture is part of what you will help us do. You will see that every single team member is a value addition to our culture, and our company values are very present in our day to day:
  • 🚀 Ambition (Aim higher)
  • ✊ Ownership (Take control and Own it)
  • 📈 Accountability (Be accountable to results)
  • 🙋‍♀️ Care (Give a sh*t)
  • 🏃‍♂️ Train (Grow yourself)
  • 🤝 Genuine (Say it and accept it)
  • 👯‍♂️ Team player (Leverage the team)
  • 🏗 Architect (Plan & Build)
