HI, WE'RE MOZ 👋
Moz is dedicated to the mission of helping businesses do better marketing. World-class data and future-forward software solutions power the insights that help sites get found online. From our very beginning, we've worked hard to make search engine optimization (SEO) a more thoroughly understood and transparent marketing strategy through educational materials, quality software, and our vibrant community. And behind everything is a team of people committed to staying true to our TAGFEE values — it's not always the easiest way to work, but we believe it's the best.
WHAT WE'RE SOLVING 🤖
The internet is always changing, and so are the rules of the game when it comes to ranking a site in the search engines. To help customers with their SEO needs, we're constantly solving a number of highly complex, large-scale technical problems. Examples include indexing the entire known internet on a daily basis (~36 trillion records/day), building large-scale data collection tools, and understanding how complex and ever-changing search algorithms work.
KEEPING OUR CORE PRINCIPLES IN TACT IN THIS EVER-CHANGING SYSTEM💪🏾
From Moz's inception, we've been guided by six core principles that comprise our company values:
🔵 Transparent: We believe open, accessible information is the best way to help others. We will represent ourselves and our intentions honestly to our coworkers and to our customers, sharing as much of the truth as we can without sacrificing our other values.
🟣 Authentic: We believe in being the same people we are online and offline, in the office and outside of it. We deeply respect and strongly encourage free expression about our differences in opinion and diversity of backgrounds in an environment that nurtures and supports us all.
🔵 Generous: We will over-deliver when we can, providing our community and our customers with more than their money’s worth. We believe in giving back without asking for anything in return and that providing value and help to others is its own reward.
🟣 Fun: We strive to make the work of marketing more enjoyable and not take ourselves too seriously. We're dedicated to creating and maintaining a friendly, relaxed work environment, and make every effort to bring positivity to our customers and community.
🔵 Empathetic: Moz is a safe place where we work to see things from other people's perspectives. We will treat others the way we wish to be treated: with respect for their thoughts, feelings, and opinions. We will work hard to ensure our community lives this value as well.
🟣 Exceptional: The exception to the rule, we will avoid the assumption that existing norms are the right path. We choose to build our products and company in a way that critically examines best practices, often paving our own better path forward.
DIVERSITY AT MOZ 👩🏽🦱🧑🏿🦱👳🏾🧕🏼🌈
Our staff should reflect the diversity within our customer base and the communities which we live and work in. Our customers comprise a wide array of individuals and organizations — to be successful, we need Mozzers who bring a variety of perspectives and life experiences to the table.
Our commitment to diversity revolves around creating a respectful, highly inclusive environment for our employees and community. As an equal opportunity employer, it's our policy to provide equal employment opportunities to all employees and candidates without regard to race, color, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, age, disability, gender identity, results of genetic testing, or service in the military.
We know that when it comes to diversity, there is always more work to be done. Moz aspires to be an actively anti-racist company, and we're taking steps to ensure our business equitably reflects the community around us.
IMPORTANCE OF EQUITY 🤲🏾
For us, equity is about ensuring we are making opportunities available to as many individuals as possible and proactively reaching out to as wide and diverse an audience as possible. Our customer base is a wide cross-section of society and we can’t build the best products for our customers if our team doesn’t reflect this.
PRACTICING INCLUSIVITY ✨
It's not enough to hire people from underrepresented groups. We also need to ensure they feel like they have a sense of belonging once they join our team. Our culture must be inviting to and supportive of everyone. Transparency is one of our core values — that means creating an environment where people feel comfortable speaking up, giving their perspective on an issue, and knowing their voice will be valued and respected.
Our TAGFEE values are more than a poster on a conference room wall. Leading with empathy and being transparent are expectations for all employees. Mozzers are encouraged to speak up on issues which matter to them and encouraged to contribute to efforts aimed at making Moz a better place to work. We also support internal company interest groups, such as our Gender Minorities in Tech, to help Mozzers discuss issues which matter to them and to help shape important conversations across Moz.
CREATING A SAFE SPACE FOR ALL MOZZERS ❤️
We offer support and training to employees as part of our ongoing work to create an inclusive, equitable, anti-racist work environment. All employees are required to participate in implicit bias training, and through our internal academy, Mozzer U, we encourage employees to take our additional training in Understanding Microaggressions, Owning Our Rank & Power (a course about understanding and using privilege for good), and Allyship.
Over the past several months, we've committed to doing more learning, more listening, and to not take up space of those who have already been doing incredible work on educating the world on how to be anti-racist. We're currently seeking professional guidance from several diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) organizations and are committed to expanding our educational tools internally.
WE VALUE PEOPLE BASED ON WHAT THEY DO, NOT WHEN THEY SHOW UP👏🏼
We strongly believe it's important to take time away from work. To encourage Mozzers to take time for themselves, we reimburse all of our employees the equivalent of US\$3,000/year in vacation/travel expenses.
We also adapt to the changing needs of our employees and society. The COVID-19 crisis has created extra stress for everyone the world over; as a result, we've implemented additional "breather days" each month for Mozzers to take extra time off for themselves and their families. We also pride ourselves on providing a very flexible work environment; even before the pandemic, we supported several fully remote employees and allowed for regular work-from-home days when desired.
WE'RE BEING INTENTIONAL ABOUT CHANGE 🗣
Moz has a history of working with organizations dedicated to addressing the root causes of systemic injustice. This list includes the Ada Developers Academy, Techbridge, Year Up and Un-Loop. We’re also reallocating our job posting budget to focus more on reaching out to groups who have traditionally not been actively recruited by the tech industry. It's our goal to only extend an offer for a role once we've interviewed a diverse, representative pool of candidates.
OUR VETTING PROCESS ✔️
Step 1: The interview process kicks off with an initial conversation with the recruiter. This is primarily about better understanding your background, learning more about what you're looking to do next in your career, and to discuss who we are, what we do, and how this role contributes to the company as a whole.
Step 2: The second step is a conversation with the hiring manager or a lead developer on the team. This will be more a technical conversation and may include a collaborative coding exercise.
Step 3: The final step is a multi-part interview. This will include technical and non-technical conversations with members of the team you'll be working with, as well as with teams you'll work with indirectly. You'll also meet with a member of the engineering leadership team.
Step 4: We try to move through our interview process as quickly as possible, but we’re also committed to taking the time to ensure that we've interviewed a diverse slate of candidates before making any final hiring decisions.
