Why is Envato a great place to work? I’ll tell you. It’s flexible!
This morning I was able to drive my son to a job interview in Brisbane. While he’s being grilled, I can get some work done. I’m sitting at a McDonalds playground sipping a frappe and getting some work done with free wifi, watching my youngest son climb on the play equipment. In a couple of hours (maybe sooner) I’ll get a message that the interview is over (phew!), and I’ll drive us all home. Try that with a normal job!
I first thought about working from home just over three years ago, after my youngest son was born. Not long afterwards I landed a small writing job with the AudioJungle blog, and six months later I had a full time job. I have to say that working for Envato has worked out perfectly for me.
But I also have to say that too much flexibility isn’t always a good thing. Days like today generally start early, and finish very late. The more you try to squeeze into a day, the longer they last! I generally try to make my days more structured, but it’s great knowing the flexibility is there when I need it.
If you’re on the team and would like to let the world know why Envato is a great place to work, drop me a line, or use this submission form. And include a photo if you can!
