What’s Vanti Life really like?
We’re a small business growing fast; as such, Vanti HQ is not a place of perfect organisation and process – sometimes it can be like putting the wheels on a moving car (and we get that that’s not for everyone)! We want to make sure everyone interested in joining our awesome team understands the challenges we’re facing at the moment, so they can decide if it’s the right environment for them.
Our culture is a work in progress
At Vanti, you don’t have to be a certain way, look a certain way or come from a certain background. We want and need people who think differently and approach things in different ways, so we can truly provide the very best experience and solutions for our clients. However, we know that hiring a diverse range of folks comes with its own challenges. We’ve been working hard over the last year to provide tools, training and on-going support to help people understand themselves and their teammates better, so ideas and feedback can be shared freely and confidently without fear of judgement. It just so happens people make friends along the way too… ☺
There’s still a lot to improve – but anyone can help!
We cannot overemphasise the fact we’re not perfect (and probably never will be); there’ll always be room for improvement! But we get that this can feel ambiguous and scary for some people – so we want to be clear that even though some things might be missing or aren’t quite right yet, anyone in the team can take ownership of problems and make them better. Whether it’s the way we run interviews or internal meetings, how we share information, or how we create a more fun team environment; if you think it can be better, you don’t need to be told to do it or wait for it to happen… you can either do it yourself, or bring together a group of teammates to help you.
The industry we work in has yet to be disrupted
As a technology company specialising in the built environment, we’ve become all too familiar with the challenge of working with an industry as traditional and slow-moving as construction. We’re working every day to educate and support our clients in the art of the possible, whilst setting realistic expectations and working with challenging constraints. We love this, but it’s not without its frustrations! You’ll need to be prepared to work as smartly as you can, but be receptive to the fact your plans may need to change. Our aim is to help the construction industry and the world by designing and building smarter buildings that benefit everyone. Not an easy feat!
