What’s it like to work at BaseKit?

I was looking to move away from a corporate environment and into a company where I would feel like more than just a number and also where I truly believed in what they stood for. BaseKit provides me with both of those things and more.

Kerry Insights Manager

I joined BaseKit over 6 years ago and somehow the challenges and exciting projects haven’t slowed down. I’ve lost track of the amazing things I have had the privilege to work on, with such a friendly and talented team.

Matt Developer Team Lead

I joined BaseKit in 2019 and my onboarding was been second to none. It’s so nice to be part of a company that really cares about its employees and their well-being. Everyone has made me feel part of the team and I’m looking forward to the future.

Learning and development

We provide regular reviews, budgets for training and qualifications, and frequent opportunities to explore next steps. We want to give you the support you need to progress your career. After all, we’re only as skilled as our people…

Health and wellbeing

Private healthcare with Vitality, weekly yoga, and a cycle to work scheme are all part of the deal at BaseKit – if you want them, of course! Our job is to support you so you can be well, work well and live well.

Employee recognition

Giving feels good. At BaseKit, anyone can give recognition with Bonus.ly. Plus, there are company awards, annual pay rises, and a good pension scheme too. When we’re seen, appreciated, and understood, we’re connected to each other – and something bigger.

Social scene

Community is at the heart of technology. At BaseKit we recognise that and embrace it at every opportunity! Interactive updates, fun meetings and employee-led discussions are the norm here. Oh, and did someone say summer social?!

Your environment

Focus, collaborate, get inspired… the right environment is key to success. Our office is modern and has everything you’d expect: There’s Pact coffee. There’s fresh fruit. And there’s cake… there’s always cake.

“BaseKit is a hybrid working company so we have a couple of days in the office each week and a couple of days at home.  That gives our employees an opportunity to be completely flexible between their work and their home life. ”

BaseKit Team FAQs

From our interview process to becoming one of the team, browse our FAQs below.

What does the interview process look like at BaseKit?

There are typically two stages to our interview process:

First stage:

  • A 30-minute telephone interview, with the line manager responsible for the position and HR
  • It’s a chance for us both to get to know one another, to talk through your CV and to ask and answer questions

Second stage:

  • A face-to-face interview (or a video interview while we’re distancing)
  • You’ll have the opportunity to meet some of the team you could be working with – we’re a small but perfectly formed team at BaseKit, so it’s really important that everyone gels as a team
  • We’ll have a more in-depth conversation on the required skill set and the role
  • Depending on the role, there may also be a skills-based exercise to complete at this stage – but we’ll let you know in advance
Does BaseKit have a personal development program/Career opportunities?

We take personal development seriously at BaseKit. We want the people that work for us to thrive as individuals and as part of our team; everyone’s career development is part of an ongoing conversation at BaseKit.

Every quarter, you’ll have a personal review with your line manager. Which means that four times a year, you can review and assess your career opportunities with management. BaseKit provides a company training budget as well as a qualification budget. So, if there’s a certification you need to be able to do the job, we can help you get there.

Our take on career development is to keep the conversation alive, and always have an open mind. We think this works – and with retention rates at 96%, we hope our people do too!

How many people work at BaseKit?

32 and counting. Watch this space…

How does BaseKit make money?

We sell our software to hosting companies, telecommunication companies and other enterprise organisations. These companies typically white-label and localise our website builder in order to provide a valuable web presence solution for their micro business customers.

Today, BaseKit powers millions of websites around the world.

How is individual and team performance measured?

Individuals: Quarterly reviews and monthly check-ins

  • Quarterly review: Every three months you’ll meet with your line manager for a review. You’ll have the opportunity to celebrate successes, plan next steps and discuss feedback. It’s a two-way discussion designed to offer support when and where it’s needed.
  • Monthly check-ins: Every month, you’ll have a chance to check in with your line manager. It’s an opportunity for your manager to offer support, for you to share any concerns, and to generally make sure everything is alright! Of course, we’re always open, so conversations are never limited to just these discussions.

Team: Performance management is broken down from business priorities to team level

At BaseKit, transparency is a priority. Business priorities are set and teams (and individuals!) can review and discuss their contribution regularly. Priorities and goals are managed by company-wide weekly stand-ups. The idea is to create an open discussion so that we’re all aware of what’s happening and how we can contribute.

What does BaseKit offer to support work/life balance?

BaseKit is a strong believer in work-life balance. So much so, that we’ve designed our workday around it. With core hours from 10am – 4pm, social opportunities, working from home policies, and employee recognition schemes, we want to make this a place people enjoy working. Not forgetting that we all need space for life, too! Take a look at our perks and benefits for more.

What makes BaseKit a great place to work?

The people! Look, we know we’re a little biased, but we really think that we work with some amazing people. Talented, positive, friendly and committed, our team is one of the best things about coming to work every day… or working from home, however you look at it!

Don’t just take our word for it, see for yourself. Check out our Glassdoor ratings, read our employee testimonials and see what our new starters have to say.

And after you’ve done that? We hope we’ll get to work with you soon…
