Axess Lab makes the digital world accessible to people with disabilities. We are designers, UX people, programmers and educators who are choosing to spend our time helping make the digital world accessible by everyone. As you start working here, you are given training in digital accessibility, you get to join user-testing sessions with people who are blind, deaf, or have motor impairments to see how life in the digital world works for them. We build software, review websites, educate - and more!
Axess Lab is a self-managing organisation of responsible, social, easy-going tech-enthusiasts. Self-management means that you will likely not be used to how things are done here. The way we work and organize ourselves creates true professionals, and result in true personal growth, but it is not for everyone. Here are some examples of self-management, explained in a lot more detail in our "Handbook for colleagues".You set your own salaryYou have your own company credit card and can use the company's resources as you likeAny idea you have, you are allowed to pursue. Any problem you find, you are responsible to fixNothing is "Someone else's job"We do not have specific job descriptions, your job is simply to "find the most meaningful task, and pursue it!"No bosses or middle-managersGenerally we aim to fulfill the purpose of the company together, while also fulfilling our personal purposes. We recognize that money is like the air we breath: we need it to stay alive, but we don't live to breath! We strive to create something larger than ourselves, and to have true impact.
