Life at Founders

Hurray! First off, a huge welcome from everyone here. We are so excited to start building, hacking and hanging out with you.  

We also know that taking on a new role, workplace and maybe even city is a lot to juggle. Here’s the skinny on life and work at Founders to get you on your feet.

[We think if something’s worth sharing inside Founders, it’s probably worth sharing, so that's why our welcome playbook is open.]

As a family, we share each other’s ups and downs, give honest feedback (even if it’s painful) and celebrate each win as if it’s our own. There’s always a friendly ear, time for a cup of coffee or company for a strong gin whenever you need it.

How we work

You have the space, freedom and resources to do your thing how you want to do it. Here’s an idea of how we like to work at Founders.

Good ideas come from anywhere. Speak your mind - debate keeps us fresh ;)

Bendy working

means when you get your work done is up to you, but most people are at Founders HQ between 9 and 6.

Be thoughtful 

when it comes to people's time. We like lunch meetings, standups & walk-abouts.

Remote working

means if you want to work from home, a cafe or South America for a while - awesome - we’ll make it work.

Feeling unwell

or got an appointment? Just let your team know and get well soon!

family comes first.


We’re a social bunch. We love hosting meetups, breakfasts and talks at Founders HQ and around conferences we’re attending.

What we believe in

Our values are what make Founders what it is. They’re not locked away in board packs and PDFs, these are things live every day.

Always be curious

  • Devote time to explore

  • Understand the why and share your experiences

  • Be the best at getting better

We never stop learning, questioning, wondering. We are passionately curious.

Founders is what we make of it

  • Be Proactive

  • If something doesn’t work, suggest solutions and volunteer to implement them

  • Take responsibility for your own professional development, Founders will support you!

We are all empowered and equally responsible to make Founders great.

Be proud and humble

  • Work as passionately on other people’s ideas as on your own

  • Check your ego at the door

  • Acknowledge that you are part of something bigger

We fight as if we are right and listen as if we are wrong.

Be bold and ambitious

  • Start with a vision

  • Don’t be afraid of attacking large problems

  • There is no win and no fail, there is only make

Taking risks is a good thing. We are daring, ambitious and don’t fear failure.


  • Don’t optimize for short term gains

  • Don't get caught in the hype

  • Build lasting companies, not exit strategies

We think long term. We are not susceptible to "short-termism" - the unhealthy craving for instant gratification that is ruining the world.

Discipline makes us better

  • Trust, follow and contribute to improve our processes

  • Don’t sit down waiting for inspiration, build something!

  • Prioritise ruthlessly

Entrepreneurship is neither a science not an art. It’s a practice.

Founders HQ

This is your space to make, do and play. Want to work from the hammocks? Go for it. Need to lock yourself away to focus for an hour or two? Do it. Feel like blowing off steam on the ping pong tables or taking five for some Fifa? Feeeeel free! There are meeting rooms that can be booked when needed, small conference rooms, a meditation room and pretty much anything else you can think of. Treat it nice, tidy up after yourself and have fun!
