What’s it like to work at Mews?
Every company has a culture. Parts of this culture is made tangible through actions and programs, but some of it is harder to articulate. It’s more of a feeling. Keep scrolling and we’ll do our best to put into words the unique culture we have at Mews.
Ask anyone at Mews to describe our culture, and you’re likely to get hundreds of different versions of the same answer. We’re open. We’re direct but we’re playful. We’re in love with working hard but also smart. We’re a friendly bunch who have each other's backs, and we leave our egos at the door.
The Mews leadership team comes from a diverse background of hospitality, tech, start-ups and beyond, but what they have in common is passion, expertise, and ambition. They set not only the direction of the company, but the tone. There are no ivory towers or locked doors: each of them is just a Slack message away, always happy to talk and collaborate.
Unofficial Mews CTO (Chief Talking Officer), Leah has a wealth of experience in leading global marketing teams and driving brand development and success.
Greg joined Mews in 2016 and has since become totemic for Mewsers and Mews customers alike. He has overcome crippling shyness *cough* to spread the word of Mews far and wide.
Why does Mews keep winning awards like Best Place to Work? In large part because Naomi and her People Team work tirelessly to foster an open, inclusive and inspiring workplace.
At the heart of Mews culture are our five core values. They’re a distillation of how we work and how we interact with each other, and they’re what we look for in every potential new Mewser.
We believe that great technology can make the human experience better.
We're tough. The workload might be heavy, but one foot in front of the other.
We read, we discover, we ask questions, we challenge assumptions.
We will all make mistakes. The key is to learn, get feedback and improve.
We share our experiences with one another. We believe in an open culture.
Reimagining the art of hospitality takes teams who represent our customers and users, who surface the best ideas because people feel safe and authentic, who are open to embracing different perspectives and trying new things. Our differences make Mews, and it is our goal to create an environment which welcomes people of all backgrounds and identities, making Mews a truly global, innovative, and exciting community to be part of.
There are no better ambassadors for Mews than our very own Mewsers. Here are a handful of stories from people around the business.
"Working at Mews, I truly feel that I’m a part of something bigger. I feel like I’m embodying our “Make things remarkable” mantra on a day-to-day basis which is something I’ve never experienced before – and being surrounded by such an awesome group of people doesn’t hurt either. I’m blessed to be a part of such a great company."
"What I appreciate most about Mews is the trust and transparency. There's a great level of transparency in the business – strategy, objectives, metrics, and lessons learned. It's a continuously collaborative process where teams are trusted to autonomously contribute towards high-level objectives. At the same time, open communication across reporting lines and functions keeps everyone in sync and helps us understand how our work helps move Mews forward."
"I love the impact that I'm able to have at Mews. I feel truly empowered to not only influence my own workflows and projects, but to contribute to how the company operates and the decisions we make.
I love that suggestions are always valued, listened to, and often acted upon. All of that while working with some of the smartest and most inspiring people I have ever met."
"The collective ambition of Mewsers was very apparent to me straight away and you quickly understand this is a special place to work. We all have the desire to build something that's memorable and significant, for us as well as our users.
I love the desire to create equity and transparency in Mews. As everyone gets equity in the company, it creates an incredible level of ownership and investment in the work we are doing."
"From the first time I met the Mews team, you could feel the energy in the room. It was lively, there was laughter, and there was an enthusiasm and a freshness that made me think: this place is crazy and I like crazy! Mews is solving the right set of problems at the right time. Matt and Richard’s instincts ten years ago were spot on, so Mews isn’t just any other normal job opportunity. It’s probably the best job of my life."
