What does working at WorkHound look like?
At WorkHound, our mission is to help people love the work they do. We live this as a team and through our product. We want our team to love what they’re doing while working at a place that’s growing and moving quickly. We hire based on values and entrepreneurial spirit. Because of this, we have a smart team who has fun, cares for one another, and gets a lot done. You’ll be joining a team of hard-working, happy, and humble people.

What is WorkHound?
We are a software company building the megaphone for frontline workers and those who support them.
We enable workers to feel heard, valued and respected. We amplify their voices, help companies understand the needs of their staff, and improve their culture and bottom line in the process. With over 46,000 workers active on our platform we are proud of the work we’ve done and excited for the huge opportunity still in front of us. The opportunity was huge before the pandemic and explosion of remote work culture, it’s absolutely massive now.
As technology shapes the future of work, WorkHound is the human side of automation.
What are WorkHound’s Values?
Be Nice We spend much of our time working, we should do so in harmony and productive collaboration. We value diverse viewpoints but we must all pull together and follow our north star. Collaborators over dictators. Servant leadership.
Be Transparent Information breeds confidence, silence breeds fear. The best decisions are driven by data. We share everything we know with each other to help prioritize our efforts, create harmony, and build where it hurts. We value trust over rules.
Create Value We create value rather than extracting it. Creating a great product allows our customers to grow with us. Creating a great work environment inspires the best people to build with us. We believe all parties should benefit from every transaction and interaction. This goes for ourselves, our team, our partners, and our customers. Most value is created in long-term relationships.
Win or Learn We don’t place blame for failure or mistakes, we celebrate and learn from them. If we don't screw some things up, we aren't moving fast enough.We must deeply understand our customers to serve them best. We operate with speed, simplicity, and focus.
