Our rules

The people

The Team

Originally, the Prograils staff wasn’t meant to exceed 30 people (the reason you’ll find in Values section of the "Who we are" chapter). We managed to stick to this principle and operate at full bandwidth for nearly 10 years.

Our projects, however, scale, and we grow with them. Growth hardly happens overnight, and neither should raise the number of employees. Why? We want to keep our identity and no-bullshit approach intact. Regardless of its current growth and active hiring policy, Prograils is not, and will never, become a corporation.

Extreme ownership

We take extreme ownership of what we do and how it is done. You can be sure that all the work on your project is done by us and no one else.

Wearing many hats can end up in a serious headache. By not augmenting other projects and teams with our people, we make sure they are always aware of where and for whom they work.

Why? Because, once again, it’s not about numbers, but the people.

Recruitment

Ruby on Rails developers, both junior and seasoned ones - visit our Jobs page and apply!

Career

After joining us, the first two months will be your "trial". In this period, we check if we understand each other and are on the same page.

At some point, everyone feels the urge to grow professionally. You too. To ensure you feel listened to, supported, and receive the feedback you asked for, we offer 1-on-1 meetings with our CEO, Maciej. You can schedule an appointment via Humadroid, our own HRMS.

One thing of which you can always be sure is that you will be properly rewarded for your work, accordingly your commitment and skills.

Work environment

Most people hate open spaces. Well, we hate them too. Our spacious office is divided into separate rooms, everyone in our office has their own private zone around the desk.

We guarantee the most comfortable working conditions, everyone is equipped with high-quality headphones, large-size, adjustable-height standing/sitting desks, and as many monitors and other hardware as one needs. Stability balls and ergonomic chairs, too, create a healthy environment at work.

Also, silence is probably one of the most productive and healthy factors we believe in. That’s why we try to avoid producing general noise in the office such as loud conversations and (constant) interruptions.

Health

We do respect our health. You can stay in good shape thanks to private healthcare, gym membership, fresh fruits and breakfasts in the office. Do you feel like cycling to work? No problem at all, you can safely leave your bicycle in our private garden and then freshen up by taking a shower. We have one in one of our bathrooms. If you happen to catch a cold, you’re not welcome in the office: just to prevent spreading viruses. Take your time to recover at home, if you feel up to it - you can work remotely.

The public health care system has its weaknesses. Having that in mind thanks to private health insurance our employees can avoid waiting lists and get prompt private medical care. In emergency cases, you can request us to participate in the necessary expenses that may support your fast recovery. We will treat each such case individually. To request our help, talk to Maciej or Marta anytime, and let us see what we can do.

Covid-19 safety measures

The covid-19 pandemic has made us rethink and redefine our office and remote work policy. This means becoming even more flexible when it comes to remote work. You can work at home as long as you wish. We will be happy to equip you with all the necessary tools to make you feel comfortable at your home office: laptops, monitors, keyboards, as well as desks and chairs, are at your disposal.

If you still prefer to come to the office, you are always welcome. With fewer people around, it’s safer and more healthy.

Of course, we maintain the highest hygiene standards at the Prograils HQ: hand disinfection is mandatory for all who enter, and disinfection liquids are distributed across all the rooms. Have trouble finding one? Check at one of our warehouse rooms. Apart from disinfection sprays and liquids, there are air purifiers and ozone generators in the office.

If you have attended any event, party, or, simply, have been in a crowded place lately, please stay at home for at least 14 days.

Our toys

Oh, we like toys. Our office is equipped with the newest devices and hardware, we’re always up to date with new trends and gadgets. We can finance the device of your choice. Simply, tell us about your need.

Perks

Actually, it’s hard to list them all. Quick examples are private healthcare, life insurance, English classes, gym membership, fresh fruits and breakfasts in the office, kindle readers, hardware needed, out-of-office days, pizza-days, and so on.

Our Prograils’ elite Member, Support and Prospect Hoodies are well-known, not only in town. We wear our club badges with respect - one for all, all for one.

Should you need professional advice from the lawyer, be it in regards to your professional duties or emergency private situation, it’s on us too.

The Office

We do our best to maintain a good atmosphere in the office. PlayStation, VR, table football, and a chill room. Club mate, soft drinks, and high-quality coffee. The garden, hammock, ergonomic chairs, and electric standing desks. A saturator, a smoothie maker, and last but not least - a comfortable and friendly office full of plants for sure have an influence on it.

We like spending time together also after hours, some office parties are labeled as epic. When the weather is nice, a meal in the fresh air is always a good idea: our company’s barbecue and garden furniture set helps us to relax. Kids are warmly welcome, we have a small playground too!

Self-development

We encourage our employees to self-development. If you need some advice on your professional path, let's talk. Just book a 1-on-1 meeting with our CEO, Maciej via Humadroid.

We’d be happy to finance or refund books, e-books, courses, equipment, additions, extensions, or conferences, including fees, transport, and accommodation. Found self-improving resources worth buying? Spread the news on our dedicated Slack channel (#self-improvement). We’ll make a purchase shortly.

Do you think our office lacks something essential in improving your working comfort? Feel free to tell us!

Absence

B2B and civil contractors are entitled to 25 paid days off during the year. Unused leave is also covered by financial compensation. To maintain smooth workflow within the company, no more than 55% of the team can be out of the office at a time.

Longer absence should be planned in advance: according to our policy 1 day-off = 1 week of prior notice. For example, if you’d like to take five days off you have to notify this fact no later than five calendar weeks before. Mind the fact: splitting up the period of prior notice is not allowed, i.e. you won’t be able to get five days off three weeks earlier by requesting two consecutive vacations that last three + two days.

Sometimes, however, in circumstances assessed on an individual basis, there might be exceptions in our internal day-off policy.

You ask for time-off and plan your holidays in the Humadroid HR management system, developed by Prograils

.

In teamwork, the flow is everything. Although we offer flexible working hours to our entire team, some things need to be discussed face to face at our office or through video chat, at a given time.

Out of respect for each other's time and productivity, we ask every Prograils team member to inform the management about any instance of planned absence/delay until 10 AM.

Need to take care of your kids, visit a dentist or get something done elsewhere? Fine, just tell.
