Given that we have team members based all over the globe, remote work is a big part of what we do—but there is just something special about being all together. Once a year, we bring the entire team together for an all-hands week—and this year, we took the team to Newport, Rhode Island.
At Litmus, we believe in a healthy work-life balance. Remote work takes that balance to the next level by allowing you to be more dedicated to both work and family. We share some of our stories about how our remote-first culture has impacted our lives.
Recently, we hosted our first Women’s Leadership Panel at Litmus. As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we invited female leaders from our own network to share their experiences and offer advice to our team through a panel discussion. There was so much great insight shared during the conversation—here are a few of our big takeaways!
To run an outstanding email program, you need a best-in-class team. Our research shows a close correlation between a successful email program and a well-staffed email marketing team.
That’s why, in 2019, we invested in our email team.
Ever wondered what it’s like to work remotely? Eddie Cianci, Director of Engineering at Litmus, lets you peek behind the curtain. Read on to learn what it’s like to work on a team that’s spread across the globe, and the benefits and challenges that come with it.
Litmus’ Engineering team, like the rest of our company, has grown a lot over the past couple of years. That growth combined with the fact that most Engineering team members work remotely means that we have to create opportunities to get to know each other and to work side-by-side whenever we can. That’s why in 2018, Litmus’ Engineering team decided to hold its first annual Engineering Retreat Week in Portsmouth, New Hampshire!
The retreat week was one part hackathon, one part team identity building, and one part time to socialize. Here’s what we learned.
At Litmus, we care deeply about our customers and the email community, and we’re working hard to make the email world a little better every day. But we also believe that our involvement shouldn’t stop at the end of the work day or be limited to the email community. We’re proud that many of our team members are engaged in their communities beyond Litmus, and as a brand, we believe that it’s our responsibility to do the same. That’s why Litmus offers Volunteer Time Off (VTO)—paid time away from work that employees can use to volunteer at an organization of their choice. Plus, volunteering has become part of our bi-annual team get-togethers.
New products, new team members, and a whole lot of projects to help brands get access to the knowledge and tools they need to send better email—2017 has been an exciting year for Litmus. We asked the Litmus team: “Looking back at the the past year, what are you most proud of? What surprised you most?” Here’s what they said.
Remote work has always been a fundamental part of the culture at Litmus. Since the early beginnings of the company, there has been a mix of team members working from local offices and folks working 100% remotely. This hasn’t really changed as the Litmus team has grown.
Here are our team’s favorite tips for how we make working with a distributed team work for everyone.
Today, we’re saying goodbye to one of Litmus’ very first features—Page Testing.
This wasn’t an easy decision. Interestingly, Page Testing is actually where Litmus first started. Years ago, it was all that we offered—and we didn’t want to let it go without a proper goodbye.
