Freedom From Versus Freedom To
Sam used to be stuck in a 9-5 office job as a software developer that was draining him both mentally and emotionally.
One day he decided he was done. He wanted to pursue his creative interests and find a way to make money doing it. He started his own business where he could dictate his work schedule and have more time for his family. Finally, freedom from the shackles of his office job.
Sam started working as a software developer with Clevertech on a fully remote team. He worked on projects that mattered and challenged him. While doing this, he was also able to cut his commute, obtain financial stability, and watch his kids grow up. Clevertech gave him the freedom to work in a way that feels deeply satisfying and fulfilling.
At Clevertech, it is important to us that we bring on people who are looking for freedom, but who also acknowledge that good work requires hard work. We want employees who are looking for freedom to do what they love—whatever that might be. Maybe they want the freedom to build an exciting new career, or be there when their baby takes their first steps, or to move to a sunnier climate where they can surf and hike.
Brooks says, “my favourite definition of commitment is falling in love with something and then building a structure of behaviour around it for the moment when love falters.” At Clevertech, we don’t expect people to be in love with their work all the time, but we do want people to have the freedom to do what they love, where they want, and expect them to commit to doing the hard work when things get tough.
2. We want people who are willing to make a professional commitment to our company and our clients. It might mean fighting to keep up with the latest trends in the industry, sacrificing a bit of time when things are busy, or going that extra mile to make sure our clients have the best experience.
3. Ultimately, we want someone who is committed to doing what they love with excellence in a way that satisfies their soul.
