Onboarding at Axelerant

Everything about Axelerant is towards mutually beneficial exchanges.

We view your role as crucial to making your life and Axelerants better and more accessible. We acknowledge that your professional career is not the only aspect of your life. Though we work remotely, we keep regular, predictable hours with the intention of mutual respect and high productivity.

Our values shape us, and here is how that consciously happens.

A 90-day onboarding period allows new team members time better to understand Axelerant's culture, pace, and uniqueness while ramping up to meet our expectations of their role. Relevant department or service area director or other designated person provides onboarding oversight.

Axelerant's goal is to have ongoing feedback to manage expectations and prevent stakeholder surprises during your career at Axelerant.

Our team has many customer-driven roles aim to create happily expected and sustainable outcomes. Therefore, people skills followed by role competency are essential. When an onboarding component doesn't apply to you, move on or ask for clarity. At the day's end, each of us is responsible for our success and our partners as a team.

We give you elbow room so you can make impactful decisions. We protect the high-performance culture you're a part of. And, while doing your best work, have fun. 

  2. By paying fairly for roles and responsibilities. We research information from multiple sources based on role responsibilities rather than job titles. As your job and responsibilities change, your pay will reflect it based on our annual research.

  3. By looking out for your lifestyle and your family. We offer everybody access to as many benefits as we can responsibly make available to care for individuals and their families, including health benefits, ample vacation time, sick time, holidays off, and paid leave for new parents.

That means that throughout a career at Axelerant, we ensure team members have sharpened existing skills, gained new skills, and expanded their knowledge around their areas of expertise. We aim for every team member's career prospects to be bigger and better every year they work with us.

  5. By providing a place to demonstrate ownership. Axelerant is a reasonably flat organization, broken into two groups: delivery and operations, each owned and led by a singular person supported by many. These groups form symbiotic relationships that enhance learning, coordination, and efficiency across the company that other teams can create.
