Company culture is especially important in a remote setting. We're constantly working to make our remote work environment more supportive, productive and fun. We set high standards and make sure everyone knows what's expected and what they can expect in return.
Our respect for one another runs deep. We assume others act with their best intentions, actively listen to others' opinions and are empathetic to each other's feelings. Respect is the basis for all interactions between team members.
We are also eager to evolve. We readily acknowledge our mistakes and learn from them. Personal growth and learning opportunities are paramount; consequently, we make better decisions and our evolving never ends.
“At Toggl Plan, you’re encouraged to take action. Everyone is invited to contribute ideas, even if it's outside of your regular scope of work. If you can make a logical case for it, your voice will be heard, and you'll be encouraged to take the lead and make it happen.
While change isn’t always easy, it does help you grow. The constant work-in-progress in our product and how we work means that there are countless opportunities to grow and learn.”
KATI KUUSTIK | ESTONIA | PRODUCT TEAM
“It's very liberating working with people who are trusting and honest. It allows me the freedom to be expressive and creative, while being productive. I get to work on interesting problems, without the pressure of someone breathing down my neck.”
VISHRUT PATEL | INDIA | FRONTEND TEAM
“Working in a multicultural team is a very meaningful experience. You certainly improve as a professional, but even more as a person. The most surprising thing for me is how we recognize and compliment the work of others. I've never worked on a team with that culture before and I really can't emphasize how important I think this is.”
IURI MADEIRA | BRAZIL | BACKEND TEAM
We are a proudly multicultural and diverse team welcoming team members from all around the globe. All identities are welcome here. We refrain from judging others' behavior when confused and embrace our differences as one of our greatest assets.
We all strive to build the best product out there by finding the best possible solution to any scenario. Staying open and evaluating others’ ideas helps us achieve our goals. As a result, we've created an atmosphere where it's natural to be open and honest.
It’s important for us to build trust within our team, by making a conscious effort to stay connected. That means regular facetime online, meeting up when we can, and ongoing conversations - both casual and work-related.
Furthermore, transparency is key, both within our team, and for us as a company towards our users. Our product fosters transparency in work, and we practice what we preach. When deadlines are openly shared, and everyone knows who’s responsible for what, it prevents micromanagement and reduces time-consuming back-and-forth.
“When my team trusts me, I realize my responsibility to not let them down. I have the freedom to decide everything, from content strategy to implementation, on my own. Yet, I find myself striving harder to deliver better results every time.”
Jitesh Patil | India | Marketing Team
“With everyone’s strong sense of ownership and transparency, I always feel encouraged to do my best work.”
AARON NOEL DE LEON | PHILIPPINES | FRONTEND TEAM
“We use tools (including our own!) and have developed processes that allow for greater transparency and communication within our teams so we can collaborate most efficiently. Sharing knowledge and generating ideas across teams is a really motivating component of our work culture.”
ELIZA HEARSUM | SWEDEN | DESIGN TEAM
“One of my favorite things about our work culture is how time off is respected and encouraged. Everyone knows there is life outside of work, which is how it should be.”
VADIM KOTOV | KAZAKHSTAN | FRONTEND TEAM
“At Toggl Plan, nobody is looking over your shoulder. You're a professional working to make the best product for our customers.”
ADRIEN ANSELME | FRANCE | BACKEND TEAM
“One of the best things about working at Toggl Plan is the level of autonomy. Everyone is trusted to do their job without micromanagement, which makes for a calm and positive working environment.”

Being efficient means working smarter, not harder, to get more done with less—something our product also excels in. We do our best work when we get to decide how we work, what our schedule looks like and which path we will take to reach our goals.
And as we've discovered, people are highly motivated when they get to decide how they work, what their schedule will look like and which path they will take to reach their goals.
