Limited Capacity seats available

Three people founded JetBrains over 15 years ago. Today, with nearly 600 people, we have multiple award-winning products and offices in many locations around the world. Yet despite the growth we’re still rooted on our key core values: hiring good people and giving them the freedom to work.
At JetBrains we don’t have open floor plans. People need their private space. We don’t have working hours or timesheets. People come and go as they please. We don’t ask for reports and we certainly don’t micromanage. There’s pretty much no hierarchy and the idea of command and control is non-existent. Leadership is born out of respect from peers.
But as with everything, there are also challenges. In this talk we're going to look at the pros and the issues, and how we face some of these.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Provide experience on how we cope with:
  • Remote work and teams spread across multiple offices
  • How to deal with meetings (or lack of them) when people come and go as they please
  • How to deal with lack of process
  • The challenges of providing this kind of freedom
  • Keeping communication going as a company becomes large
