When all else fails, we either fix the problem or the blame. That just makes it simpler.
Ours is not a simple pyramid structure so popular in many larger organisations. We are more nimble, and we have been building cross-functional project teams for a long time, both for client projects and for internal company management. We have a concept of the “right team” to fit the business needs. This gives us smooth delivery.
Merce is built on transparency. Our walls are glass. (Our screens are Gorilla Glass. He he…) Our cabin doors are open. Our hierarchy isn’t. Anyone speaks to anyone. There is no designation-based flow of thoughts. Whoever is closest to the door beeps in and beeps out visitors. We give right opportunities to enhance skills and interest. We answer the questions and then question the answers. Our CEO sits in the centre of the office, not a corner. We love what we do and are just as enthusiastic on a Monday morning as we are on a Friday evening.
How we build our teams
We build our teams with stringent hiring processes. We hire freshers who show intent. We believe content follows intent. We are wary of those trying to join for salary hikes. We’re wary of those who aren’t on time. We don’t hire for resumes. We hire after tests and interviews. If you don’t have a background of tech but are willing to have a future in it, we are willing to hire you. We believe good training and induction shall help you bridge that gap. Our Tech team is always pushed to become full-stack dev engineer for 360 degree delivery and understanding the issues better. All said, intent builds our team. With a little help from intuition.
