Here's where you'll find information on what it's like to be part of Code for Australia day-to-day.
We care about our team and want to create a positive and inclusive culture where everyone feels welcome. We want to encourage and foster people of all backgrounds, and with differing experiences, to thrive in their time with us at Code for Australia.
Code for Australia works openly, agilely, reflectively and passionately to create positive impact in everything that we do. We value people's skills, energy, time, and passion and are always seeking to learn and grow as a team.
We've captured a lot about our team culture in various places...
This includes our Ambassador Guidebook and We Are Code for Australia Trello boards. You can find both below or chat to any of our amazing community to hear what it's like from a human.
Our blog is also a great reference point for how we're working on making our culture even better, including a focus on diversity and inclusion.
We also have some pretty cool perks which you're entitled to as part of our team. You can read more about them in the Can I have? and Who Do I Talk To About? sections of this Handbook.
Where To Find Things
We pride ourselves on having great documentation, but sometimes it's tricky knowing where to look.
Here's a rough guide:
Google Drive is where we keep all of our documents safe. Team members have access to everything at Code for Australia once we get them sorted with an email address. With this freedom we encourage you to peruse and read freely, but ask you not move or delete things.
Work-life balance is very important to us at Code for Australia. We don't want our team members feeling stressed or working extra hours. While we hope our team is excited and interested in their work, we strongly encourage you to switch off once the work day is over.
No one needs to work the nine to five like a robot. As long as they're supporting their team, and getting things done, we are happy for folks to work flexibly, subject to what their team agrees on and what works for our government partners.
