At ObEN, every team member is also a partner in the company and is responsible for contributing towards the achievement of its Objectives and Key Results (OKRs). If you are not familiar with OKR’s, here’s a good tutorial.

At ObEN we believe that every partner not only works towards the company’s OKR’s but also for their own self. This might include personal priorities such as work/life balance, making more money, filing IP, etc. We take every individual’s preferences into consideration and want to hear about them during the hiring process so the appropriate package is drafted for them.

As part of our extremely refined hiring process, we expect our candidates to submit their OKR’s (candidates will get a sense of it during the initial stages of the hiring process), but also some of their own goals and personal priorities; along with their monetary expectations as well. We believe that having this information prepared will help us create a personalized package for our future partners.
