I heard you have a tracking tool to monitor your teams, why do you use it?
One of the key objectives of our productivity tracker is for it to be used by our Crossover partners to log time and eventually get paid. We also log information about our Crossover partners to understand what tools and applications they are using. This helps us to build work patterns of our people and identify best practices which we can share with all our teams.
Do you use Agile?
Like most organizations, we make use of subsets of Agile. The one key difference though is that our teams are highly specialized in the task they do. For example, we have a maintenance team whose only task is to fix bugs on our products. Rather than being product specialists they are process specialists.
How can I get promoted to new roles?
In order to move across roles you need to apply through our crossover portal. You should also be ensuring that your manager is always knowledgeable about any active applications you may have.
How do you measure the productivity of a team?
Every team has a metric which they deliver against; by default, every person within the team is measured by the same metric on a weekly basis. For example, the metric for our maintenance team is “number of bugs fixed”. The cost per unit of the maintenance team on a weekly basis is the total headcount cost of the team for a week divided by the number of bugs fixed during the same week.
Can I work part-time or in between jobs?
No, these are full-time posts requiring 40 hours per week Monday to Friday.
