Rotunda’s annual retreats are always spectacular, and our recent week-long trip to Nosara, Costa Rica was no exception.
Rotunda is an organization of under 20 people serving over a million users. And we’re not just getting by - we constantly reimagine and rebuild our products, push technological boundaries, and provide a level of service rated 9.07 out of 10 by our customers. At the same time, we keep a tiny footprint and have no dependency on outside investors. We attribute this extraordinary efficiency to three key practices that can be implemented at any organization.
Have you ever wondered how your day-to-day work experience might be different in a self-funded company? Does the slower, harder, less-traveled route of organic growth bear any fruit? At Rotunda, we have grown completely organically, and we can speak from experience about the fruits of self-sufficiency.
Since relationships are such a key component of doing remote work right, we’ve created a simple, intentional structure to foster these connections, all while leaning into our shared values and moving our collective work forward. We call this structure Breakout Sessions, and through them we forge friendships, get terrific movie and book recommendations, and gain exposure to the different perspectives that make Rotunda greater than the sum of its parts.
By leaning into shared values and our mission of helping nonprofits do good through technology, we’ve crafted an elevated remote work experience that is the best of both worlds, one where we are all meaningfully connected to each other, our work, and our clients.
Our team members at Rotunda Software aren’t merely experts with a deep passion for supporting churches and nonprofit organizations with their volunteer scheduling and communication needs: about one-third of our employees actually had personal experience using Rotunda Software products in their own jobs and volunteer activities prior to joining our team!
We're looking for great developers to join our team, and we feel our culture and methodology stand out. It might be the perfect fit for you... if you are a talented developer that refuses to surrender to the endless crunch that can plague most startups, or settle for the bureaucratic dull we often find in big companies.
At Rotunda you'll find an environment that empowers you to do your best work without signing away your identity, whether you're a family man, a musician, a travel weirdo, or all of the above. Here are some of the ways we live out our values.
Our value of "Life is Today" is baked into our organizational culture, and shows up in the way we plan our product releases, structure company retreats, communicate, and implement formal policies. Recognizing and supporting employees in leading rich, textured lives at work and beyond allows them to contribute more fully, remain creative in the face of challenges, and grow organically in their roles and contributions to our products and clients. Here are a few ways we ensure our agile, fully remote team maintains balance and thrives.
Helping organizations mobilize volunteers toward positive social change drives our small but mighty team day in and day out. We develop simple software solutions for the complex challenges volunteer schedulers face, and focus all of our efforts on building strong relationships with each and every client we have the privilege of serving.
