Values

  • Transparency starts here

    We’re on a mission to make organizations more transparent. We lead by example, and operate honestly and transparently, to show the world the value of transparency in business.

  • Hygge

    A Danish word meaning “cozy”, “belonging” or “togetherness”, representing the way we treat our office community. We value diversity and seek out people who want to join the “hygge”.

  • Be a contrarian

    We dare to go against popular beliefs and seek out principles-first solutions over incremental progress. We aim to find the best solution, not the obvious one or the one that’s been found by others before.

  • Go for it!

    We take ownership and passionately seize opportunities to create, to learn, and to grow. We run towards a problem, rather than away from it, and fail fast and learn from our mistakes.

  • Do the dishes

    We put the team first and do whatever is necessary regardless of seniority or what your job description says. Sometimes that might mean you literally need to do the dishes.

Insider experiences

What’s your favorite thing about working at The Org?

That's easy - the "hygge." There is so much thought and purpose behind building the culture. It is so clearly a priority to make this a wonderful place to work.

What's the biggest lesson you've learned at The Org?

I learned so much from working at The Org! Some of the biggest lessons I've learned must be how important it is to feel appreciated at your job and that you should try to always speak your mind and thoughts (no matter age and level). Your thoughts and opinions are always appreciated and openly welcomed at The Org!

What's the biggest lesson you've learned at The Org?

The biggest lesson I've learned at The Org is to focus. Focus on a narrow target audience, focus on solving only a handful of problems for that audience, and focus on prioritizing the things that you think will have the biggest impact. It's incredibly important at a startup where you never have enough resources and I think we're getting really good at it.

How do you keep learning at The Org?

It's hard to stop learning! The problem at The Org is not how to keep learning but rather making the decision on WHAT to learn. There is a endless opportunities to learn from colleagues, mentors, users, etc. the trick is identifying the right material to pursue and the right people to help you get there.

What’s your favorite thing about working at The Org?

Impact. Ideas can come from everywhere. We all co-create the future together: You dont have to work in the Product team to get your suggestions implemented in the next product sprint.. and if you feel your idea is a little radical just add "What would the contrarian say," or "I am gonna be a little contrarian." Contrarian is a safeword for bold ideas around here.

What’s your favorite thing about working at The Org?

Great colleagues with contrarian ideas!

Meet the Talent Leader Helping The Org Scale: Ingrid Pappalardo

Meet the Talent Leader Helping The Org Scale: Ingrid Pappalardo

Ingrid Pappalardo is the newest addition to our talent acquisition team, joining us as the Director of Talent. In her role, she will be responsible for building a top-notch talent acquisition apparatus to help The Org find talent in nontraditional and equitable ways. “My career started 8 years ago when I asked myself, ‘what can I do with my psychology degree, other than sitting across from a patient on a couch?’” Ingrid recalled. “I decided to apply psychology theories to the corporate world, and started in very buttoned-up financial services and renewable energy spaces. Since then, I have been cracking the world of VC and startups for some time now and there is no looking back!” Outside of work, Ingrid is a full-time dog mom to the large and fluffy Samba, who has already made herself at home in our Soho office. In addition, Ingrid also loves pottery, learning new languages (French is her current pursuit), NOT cooking and finding the next best whiskey bar in the city. Although Ingrid currently resides in Brooklyn, she has no shortage of past homes under her belt. She was born and raised in Cuba, but spent a large chunk of her childhood and young adulthood years in Jamaica and later, Panama. Before moving to Brooklyn with her husband, Ingrid lived on the Upper East Side. “I am excited to work at The Org because we are building a product for people like you and me. At one point in our lives, we have all been looking for the next best move in our careers and want to do so responsibly. The Org allows us to do that while leveling the playing field between employers and candidates through transparency.” We can’t wait for Ingrid to apply her well-rounded cultural background and experience in psychology to our people team as we continue to grow!

Meet The Org’s Newest Senior Reporter, Eliza Haverstock!

Please join us in welcoming our brand new journalist, Eliza Haverstock. She is the latest addition to The Org’s content team, where she contributes as a Senior Reporter covering the data and trends powering the future of work and the startup and tech communities for Iterate, The Org’s content platform. Prior to joining our team, Eliza worked at Forbes. First, she was an assistant editor on the money & investing team and then was a wealth reporter covering the world’s billionaires and calculating their net worths. Before that, she covered venture capital and private equity for PitchBook Data, and also interned as a reporter for Bloomberg. “Transparency is key at The Org, and it’s also a core principle of journalism,” Eliza said. “I’m excited to help build the Iterate platform alongside a talented team of journalists, and to advance The Org’s mission to promote more open and transparent workplaces.” Originally from Northern Virginia, Eliza now resides in Brooklyn, New York. Be sure to look out for her the next time you’re roaming around the city because when Eliza’s not working, she tries to get outdoors as much as possible. “I love being outside—hiking, walking, running, rollerblading,” Eliza continued. “I also travel whenever I can, and I’m currently attempting to master the art of French cooking!” Welcome to the team Eliza! We can’t wait to read all of your insightful stories 🤩

All the Way From Romania, Meet The Org's Senior Backend Developer: Alexandra Birsan

All the Way From Romania, Meet The Org's Senior Backend Developer: Alexandra Birsan

Meet Alexandra Birsan, our newest Senior Backend Engineer. Born and raised in Romania, where she still currently resides, Alexandra will soon join our technical team in Copenhagen. As an avid traveler, we look forward to showing her around our beautiful city when the time comes! “I love to travel, meet people from different cultures, and be awed that even though we come from such diverse places and cultures, there are things that connect us,” Alexandra said. In her role as Senior Backend Developer, Alexandra will work with the team to develop features and translate business needs into technical solutions. She brings six years of experience in both outsourcing and product companies, where she created charts for better visualization of data within companies, worked for a provider of deferred payment solutions and created and maintained booking APIs for a company in the shipping industry. “I’m excited to work for The Org because I believe in the values the company promotes,” Alexandra said. “I feel transparency is of utmost importance, not only in the professional world but in all the other areas of life. I also feel that work should be an environment where everyone is empowered, feels safe to express her or his opinions, take ownership, and grow and learn from mistakes.” Alexandra is passionate about being part of a culture that allows employees to be more than just their job title, responsibilities,or KPIs, and feels that the workplace should enable everyone to express who they are fully as a person. As a senior team member, she's excited to continue fostering this inclusive mindset internally and help her team grow closer together. When she's not working, Alexandra loves to learn more about herself and the environment around her. “Outside of work, I am interested in discovering more about my inner world,” she said. “I love to read, dance, and challenge myself to do things that I never thought I would have done.” We can’t wait to see what you accomplish with us at The Org, Alexandra!

The Org Welcomes Its First Data Analyst: Alexander Spivak

The Org Welcomes Its First Data Analyst: Alexander Spivak

The Org has secured our first Data Analyst and it’s safe to say it was worth the wait. Meet Alexander Spivak. Born and raised in Avon, Connecticut, Alexander recently graduated from Cornell University with a major in Information Science with a concentration in data science and a minor in creative writing. Prior to joining The Org, Alexander worked as an Analytics Consultant for a cloud-based data analytics consulting firm. In addition to the important work he was responsible for there, he took it upon himself to build a “smart kegerator” that tracked and monitored the office keg volume and flow, received live data on beer ratings, brewery location and ABV, and is even integrated with Slack to notify his then-colleagues about the current beers on tap. Alexander now joins our New York office to aid our Head of Analytics in delivering insightful data across our organization (and hopefully make all of our kitchen appliances smarter in the process). Looking ahead, Alexander has goals of one day building a product of his own and becoming a startup founder, so he is eager to learn from those around him at The Org. “In this data analyst role, I get to hone and refine those necessary skills such as problem-solving, growth strategy and product design. Through the ability to work across so many departments, I am able to absorb so much in so little time,” Alexander said. “To have this opportunity to work with this incredible team every day is a jumpstart for anyone interested in working with startups.” While work and play are vastly different for some, Alexander loves combining his personal interests with his professional passion. In his free time, he loves watching sports (especially the Arsenals) and has built a fully functional social sports betting platform to track individual bets and compare with friends. Similarly, Alex loves skiing, so he took his passion one step further by building a million-plus data point backend app that warehouses snow forecasts and historical data for every ski resort in North America. Additional hobbies of his include cooking elaborate meals from a wide variety of cultures and writing sci-fi short stories. “At the end of the day, I just like to build things. Whether it is helping refine the analytics pipeline, building dashboards for different teams, or supporting in any technical ways that fall outside the job description, I am eager to take ownership of any tasks thrown my way,” Alexander said. Welcome to the team, Alexander! We can’t wait to see what amazing things you build next.
