Intro

Howdy, partner! We see that you’re new to these parts, so we want to take a moment and share some nuggets of invaluable info with you. We obviously believe you’re pretty darn special—otherwise, you wouldn’t be here—and we know InterWorks wouldn’t be here without our team of experts, like you. Our success is largely due to finding and keeping our treasure trove of employees safe and satisfied. We search high and low for the diamonds in the rough that make InterWorks the scrappy, smart pioneers we are.

We know we’ve struck it rich when it comes to our team, which means we work as hard as we can to protect our assets. In this next section, you’ll find all of our most wanted information, from payroll and benefits to professional development and the wildest perks around. Now go on, git!

Payroll Schedule

Business is booming in town, and we know competition is something fierce when it comes to getting the best of the best to join your posse. We understand how important it is to offer competitive salaries and benefits in order to maintain our high level of success. On the flip side, we’re also intent on building a sustainable company that isn’t subject to every fluctuation of the tech industry and the larger economy. When we find great people who fit the InterWorks mold, we stand by ‘em, and we’re proud to offer reasonable initial salaries and readdress them as people achieve more and more success. Some employers out there may be able to offer higher dollar values, but we know that InterWorks is second to none when it comes to the team you’ll be working with, the atmosphere of casual excellence and the opportunity to do what you truly love.

Compensation

Employees are eligible for the company pension scheme after probation time. Overtime is compensated with the salary. Our payroll company will provide you with access to DATEV Arbeitnehmer online for collecting your payslip.

Payroll

Your salary will be paid monthly by the last working day of the month. If that falls on a weekend, the payment arrives on the Friday before.

Feedback & Evaluations

15Five

15Five is our employee engagement platform that serves a number of functions.

Annual Reviews

We are constantly in communication about the quality and efficiency of the work we’re producing, which means we’re evaluating performance on an ongoing basis. This informal review feedback is essential to each person here achieving their personal goals, as well as providing the best possible work product. However, casual chatter at the local water cooler just isn’t the same as a grand ole annual review. Therefore, we also conduct more formal performance reviews via 15Five on an annual and semi-annual basis. This is the time to look back on what you’ve accomplished and set goals for yourself. These reviews give us a chance to look back at the year’s successes and struggles and to assess the opportunities ahead. Compensation adjustments may also be made based on these yearly reviews.

AMA

We also offer an “Ask Me Anything” Q&A format at interworks.com/ama. This is where you’ll go if you’d like the head honcho himself, Behfar, to respond to a question that affects the company as a whole. We ask that you drop your name, so we can have some follow-up discussion and better context for your inquiry.

Ideas

Finally, we have the “Ideas” button in Slack. If you make a suggestion that could benefit InterWorks, use this button. This will set a process in motion to make your brilliant ideas come to life.
