We love our product
We run Wrike on Wrike
Great ambitions and many challenges
Since the beginning, Wrike was designed to meet the expectations of customers from teams of all sizes and industries. We help people clear communication hurdles so they can do their best work, from developing rocket systems and cars to nutritional supplements — wherever there’s a passion for the best results and collaboration. We are just as hard on ourselves. Nothing but the best will do. Our goal is to provide you with the tools, resources, and assistance you need to do your best work, which will, in turn, make Wrike even stronger and more robust for the most demanding of teams. Our own performance is the best ad for Wrike there can be.
Wrike was founded in 2006. With years of development under our belts, we know exactly how and whom we help and what our current goals are. We have established work processes and a clear organizational structure that allows us to communicate openly with anyone at all levels. However, we kept a startup mentality in many things that matter, such as our passion and desire to scale quickly and always do our best. We’ve continued to learn, develop, and advance the industry we’ve helped redefine since our inception.
I worked for several startups, and without proper processes in place, they can be quite chaotic. In Wrike, burnout is not an option. We have a good mix of reasonable structure and challenging tasks. We have documentation, processes, sprints, onboarding processes, etc. — everything you need to ensure that your plate is not overflowing and you have space for creativity and innovation.
We believe in people
A multicultural ecosystem
We believe that working together, sitting side by side, and talking in person is the most effective form of collaboration, enabling us to innovate and move our industry forward. That’s why we build creative offices where people from all over the world meet and have space to create things together, discuss new ideas in a café, or brainstorm on a terrace. But we also know there are a thousand reasons why you would occasionally prefer to stay home. We understand the value of working from home and encourage a flexible work environment. After all, you know best what works for you.
Prague at the center
We have a center of excellence in the heart of Europe: Prague. All our departments are represented there — it’s not just another branch, but a center for our development. A part of our management has already moved here to bring Wrike’s core values to our new teams. We want to make sure that we learn from the experiences that managers from all departments bring with them. They can easily meet, discuss, and form the next stage of our story together.
We believe in collaboration
These are the values we focus on
and use as measure in taking decisions
Improve every week. Receive regular feedback. Turn everything into a learning opportunity. Set aspiring goals and strive to reach them.
Apply both creative and critical thinking. Validate and iterate quickly. Minimize waste, maximize value. Turn constraints into ingenious solutions. Get things done!
We succeed when our customers succeed. Be friendly, support and get support from fellow Wrikers. Have fun. No ego but team ego.
We run Wrike on OKRs
At Wrike, we’ve been using OKRs way before they were cool, and we can’t imagine working without them. They help us clearly define objectives and key results on the way to our ultimate goal: better collaboration. On the one hand, OKRs allow us to have the autonomy to work on tasks and projects our own way. On the other hand, this autonomy isn’t absolute, as our work is safeguarded by the very goal each of us must achieve in a given period.
We run Wrike on improvements
We don’t settle for the status quo or rest on our laurels, even though we know our stuff. Every day we ask ourselves, “Is the way we do things really the best way to do them?” We always try to improve by looking to other industries for inspiration, attending conferences, and organizing hackathons (where we collaborate to solve complex problems in a short amount of time). We invest a lot into our education, so if you find ways to help you better yourself, we’d be happy to support you.
We run Wrike on feedback
Everyone at Wrike has a role in making Wrike better and improving the product. We are always open to new ideas, whether you've been working with us for years or months, as a programmer, manager, customer support representative, or customer. We'll listen carefully to any opinion and walk through it with you. If it isn’t possible to implement an idea right away, we'll explain why it's not a good fit for the product. We do this so that we don't repeat mistakes of the past.
We help people do the best work of their lives no matter where they are.
Stagnation leads to bad practices
We have more than 20,000 satisfied customers worldwide, from small cafés to giant corporations and even government organizations that manage their work for their citizens. The magic of Wrike is that it’s tailored to every user’s needs, not the other way around. Two architectural studios may have different needs, but we’ll work with them to ensure both companies are still making the most out of Wrike. These experiences give us insight into how various companies operate in many fields around the world. Every company works differently and has diverse goals that we can support.
We’re growing rapidly without any technical debt in sight
We all want to be proud of what we create. We also share a commitment to quality and a desire to avoid technical debt. That's why we've introduced initiatives that allow any engineer to help improve the product by migrating from old UI components to new ones or from one framework version to the next. Taking the lead on such initiatives is an excellent way to prove yourself as the owner and driver of your projects.
Our approach is more important than the tech we use
Our interviews are based on this mindset. We don't ask people how many and which technologies they know. We believe that new technology can be learned quickly if you put your mind to it. In our interviews, we ask questions like what algorithm you’d use or create to solve a real problem we’re facing. Sometimes the discussions get so heated that we start programming right away to see if the solution could work!
We run Wrike with care
We care about our Wrikers and want to ensure everyone has all the equipment they need for an ideal working environment — like a comfortable desk chair, monitors, computer mouse, and keyboard. We have snack rooms, lounging areas, libraries with casual reads, and meal vouchers for cafeteria lunches. Whether you work from the office or remotely, you get to bring all the perks home. During lockdown, we also helped with everyone’s electricity and Internet bills, and continue to do so.
We run Wrike on support
We’ve established a detailed onboarding process so new hires don’t feel like they’re being thrown to the sharks and told to swim. There’s always someone to help you get settled from day one, and your mentor will guide you through the next few weeks or months. In some roles, a coach or trainer will also support your professional development. Don’t forget that you have online educational materials whenever you need them.
We believe in growth
Badminton fans & Star Wars lovers
Wrike is all about energy, teamwork, and making long-lasting friendships. We care about each other and strive to work in a collaborative, positive environment. You’ll meet people with diverse backgrounds and interests — from those who are into sports like football, tennis, and badminton to video game players, climbers, runners, and dancers to TV show fanatics. We’re not exaggerating when we say that you’ll find someone at Wrike with the same interests as you, no matter what they are.
