ImageKit, the global software as a service (SaaS) startup, has announced a fully remote work policy. It is allowing its employees to choose where they want to work from. They can either work from home or from the co-working space nearest to their residence. The expenses in renting the co-working space will be borne by the Company.
Alternatively, the Company has also offered to provide a one-time home office setup allowance, in case the employees opt to work from home. The employees can also choose a standard device to work on, for which the Company will pay.
In addition, ImageKit is also offering its employees mental health breaks and company meet-ups. The staff also enjoy no fixed working hours and no-questions asked paid leave.
ImageKit realises that with a workforce comprises people from diverse backgrounds, carrying diverse ideas and working styles, it would not be fair to expect the same model to work for everyone. “With more people preferring to work from remote locations, we decided that it would be ideal to adopt a remote-friendly, flexible policy, and set up our internal processes around that,” says Rahul Nanwani, co-founder and CEO, ImageKit.
Besides, the Company is aware that change is always good, and employees do yearn to get out of their homes to work. That is why, they are allowed to choose their work model and enjoy maximum flexibility.
The five-year old startup co-founded by Manu Chaudhary, Rahul Nanwani and Somesh Khatkar, now caters to over 500 companies and 35,000 developers and businesses with the help of its 17-strong team.
The Company implements image optimisation and real-time resizing for aesthetic, experiential, frictionless delivery of images on the Web, for an enhanced experience. Amongst its well known clients are Nykaa, BigBAsket, BookMyShow, Noo, TravelOka and Weltbild.
