WeWork Company Overview

Working at WeWork

What’s amazing about WeWork is that it can’t exactly be touched—it’s a feeling. When you join the WeWork team, what you do becomes a part of who you are. As a company, we work hard, play hard, and celebrate the moments in between. WeWork is a collection of thousands of amazing stories, each anchored by our members’ purpose and dedication to pursuing their life’s work. As a team, it’s our job to elevate our members and help them achieve more as part of our community than they could on their own.

WeWork provides you with the space, community, and services you need to make a life, not just a living. We transform buildings into beautiful, collaborative workspaces and provide infrastructure, services, events and tech so our members can focus on doing what they love.

Who We Are

At WeWork, we’re united by a desire to create meaningful work and lead meaningful lives—to be a part of something greater than ourselves. Together we can accomplish much more than we ever could on our own. From Seattle to San Francisco, Shanghai to Sydney, we’re always looking to connect with people who believe in the We Generation and in our mission. We're more than just a place to work. We're a community. A movement. A shift toward a new way of working and living. We hope you’ll join us.

WHAT IT MEANS TO WORK HERE

Our story begins with our spaces, where dreamers and go-getters come together to manifest our mantra: Create Your Life’s Work. We’re crafting a world where personal success is defined by more than just a bottom line—and we’re well on our way. But, to be frank, this isn’t any old summer stroll down Daisy Lane.

The challenge of bringing the world of work to new ground is that the road isn’t going to be paved. WeWork is a place where every day is a new adventure. We follow the path of most resistance, because we’re hungry for the satisfaction of conquering a new challenge. The best way to do that is as a team. We know we’re all in this together.

MAGIC TO MONDAY MORNING

We’re devoted to empowering global communities and building the best places to work, and that goes for our own teams too.

Whether in one of our member spaces or at HQ, enjoy fresh fruit water and barista service, quiet rooms, happy plants, and more. At annual events like Summit and Summer Camp, the entire company convenes in fresh environments where paddleboarding and roller coasters lead to radical collaboration. Our core values are all oriented around living and working with intent, so you can wake up every Monday knowing why you do what you do.

OUR VALUES

Living and working with intent is what’s most important to us.

Our values set the foundation for the work we do. These aren’t just buzzwords. Regardless of what department we’re in, they’re the guiding force that creates our company culture. They keep us on the same page. They keep us honest. As a team, it’s our job to use these values to elevate our members, helping them achieve more and be better as a part of our community.

A year ago we started trying to figure out the best way to not just document HTTP APIs, but to leverage API specifications to avoid duplicating efforts on loads of similar-but-different tasks; maintaining Postman Collections, creating mocks, contract testing, payload validation, etc. To us, it felt like API developers were wasting a lot of time writing up the same logic over and over again. Listing endpoints, defining what fields should have what data, figuring out validation logic, writing up e...

Line 340 doesn’t seem to do anything at all. What am I looking at?The sweat beads on your upper lip. You already assigned that task to yourself.Take my name off it, pretend it never happ...
