How we work

We’re remote natives

Every single person in the team works remotely.

Asynchronous communication first

Our first lines of communication are tools like Slack and Notion.
We document everything and we openly share it,
unless it’s confidential.

Synchronous communication

Being face-to-face is key to building our team culture. We use video to co-work, pair-program, have socials, as well as the occasional meeting.

Getting together

Even as a remote team, we know how important it is to see each other in person. So we meet 3 times a year for retrospectives plus a 5-day retreat.

HENNING, COO

A day in the life

“At Frontastic, we have a real sense of “we.” Our employees care about each other and we make every effort to foster personal relationships as an essential part of our remote company culture.”

THE FRONTASTIC WAY OF LIFE

Our values

Make an impact

We’re here to change the industry, and we’re in it to win it. We’re incredibly focused, and our main focus is on customer success. We boldly go out of our comfort zones, we support each other, and we love what we do.

We know the impact we have, and it drives us to do our very best every day.

Thirst for learning

We’re addicted to learning, and we learn from everything. We embrace our failures as they’re something we can learn from and only help us to improve. We think differently, and we know that change is good. We’re curious, and innovation leads the way. We’re constantly looking for new ideas that can help our customers (and the world). We quickly test, verify, and learn so we can continuously improve.

We try to understand the motivation of others as we’re not all alike, and we all know different things. We actively encourage sharing knowledge, and we mentor each other.

Diversity rules

We’re proud to be a diverse team spread across the world. For us, diversity isn’t just one of our values. It’s deeply anchored in our strategy and mindset. We empower the under-represented. We value the broad personality types we have in our teams. We build a safe community for everyone to be themselves.

For us, it doesn’t matter if you’re a woman, a person of color, part of the LGBTQ+ community, if you’re a person with a disability, or if you belong to any other minority. We see that as an advantage that can only make us better in achieving our vision.

Transparency first

We believe that we can only be successful with the greatest possible transparency. We make all information as public as possible, and we’re direct (as well as truthful) in all our communications. When we make decisions, we don’t just explain what we’re doing but why we’re doing it.

We have an open and honest culture by giving direct feedback. We solve problems with constructiveness and kindness. This is how we create positive relationships and move forward together.

We’re in this together

As colleagues, with our customers, and with our communities, co-operation and collaboration are key. We help one another, and we care for each other. We’re a team, no matter if you’re a colleague or a customer, and we value our competitors. We have no ego and know it’s impossible to know everything, so we value everyone’s input and work together. And we celebrate our successes together.

Life happens. Flexibility is incredibly important to our team, and that’s why we work when it makes sense for us as individuals. We know that there’s more to life than work, but we also know that work can be pretty demanding at times. We strive to find the right balance (we know it’s not easy), and we accept that our effort is a marathon, not a sprint.

“At Frontastic, values aren’t a marketing tool. Every day since I joined the team, I experience an open and honest culture with real teamwork and a remote setup built on strong relationships between people.”

REMOTE NATIVE

A fully distributed team

Evolution of virtual retreats at Frontastic

In times of a pandemic, we believe it isn't responsible to meet in person as a remote native company. That's why our retreats – the more informal meetings – also take place online. Our learning curve is steep, to put it positively: our virtual meetings are getting better and better each time. Read more.

Maximum output comes from working in the most suitable environment

Knowledge workers don't need machines — thanks to digitalization, there's no need for paper files either. All work tools and information are available digitally that can be accessed from anywhere. So what does this mean when choosing a workplace? What does the ideal workplace look like? And does the ideal workplace even exist? Read more to find out.

About the fears of remote workers in a mixed team

Every crisis is also a chance. Corona is a chance for remote work. But why is it so important for remote workers to work in a fully distributed team? Find out more in the blog post by Frontastic COO Henning Emmrich.

Virtual — but not distant at all

Frontastic shares some more insights about life as a remote native company and why home office during a pandemic is not the same as regular remote working. We'll also share some basics about remote working as well as explaining how Frontastic decided to become a remote native company.

Is the home office a success model?

The home office isn't a model for success for every person or every company. But it can take a lot of pain for both companies and people (lack of skilled workers, long journeys). However, this only works if you do it right — as is so often the case.

Remote work in a different way: Ski-and-work

Skiing in the morning, working in the afternoon, then cooking together, discussing afterward, and having fun: that's ski-and-work.

Frontastic’s remote team growth

Since being founded, Frontastic has operated as a completely location-independent company. By now, our team isn't only spread all over Germany but increasingly also based abroad. By now, organizing ourselves as a remote native company has proven to be an important factor for our company's development. Read all about why and how we build our team remotely and why that's a big advantage for us as we grow.
