- Set up your accounts
- Get some basic intel
- Introduce yourself
Google (G Suite)
We use Google G Suite for email, calendars, spreadsheets, and documents. We will set you up with a personal Google account (
[yourname]@intempt.com), which is your identity within Intempt. You can use this account to sign in to both internal and external apps and services (through single sign-on).
Part 1: setting up your accounts and tools
You can log in at:
- Note that two-step verification is mandatory. You will be required to set this up at your first login. You can find more information at the help page.
We use Slack for internal communication. This gives us all the ability to stalk each other, use GIFs, work on Slack-bots, etc. etc. It comes as a web app, iOS app, Android App, OSX app and Windows app. Just download the apps for your platforms of choice. You can join all the relevant channels of your choice. Slack can also be a big distraction, so make sure to check out the do-not-disturb-functionalities. If you run into any trouble, just let me know.
Part 2: Some practical info:
We care for each other so we are willing to help out if you get in a tough spot being ill at home. To get the needed help or rest, just let your team lead know you’re staying at home (or going home).
Official Holidays and Vacay!
Of course, we ain’t all workaholics, but we don’t have any CAO (collective employment agreement) with loads of bylaws. But surely we do have some holidays. Be sure to check them out in the Handbook. If you want to head out to enjoy your well-deserved vacation then there is only 1 rule, and 1 rule to rule them all: check/discuss with your team and team lead. For how to request time off, please read :
After onboarding, you'll receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with access to the template of an invoice we are using here, in Intempt. We try to keep things simple and efficient, but if you have any questions about how to prepare it- just book a meeting with Kristina at email@example.com
You will be provided access to your personal folder where you can simply drop your invoice or requests for reimbursements every month. Please, remember, if you have a great plan of spending your salary on something exciting, you should provide your payment documents no later than the 10th of the month. Salaries are paid on the 15th day of next month. Important note: we do not cover the destination bank charges, so before providing details for us, choose the destination bank wisely.
Important note: At the first month of work we will not do transfers for a partial month's salary if you worked less than 15 days.
We care about security. So, whenever possible (Google apps, GitHub etc): use two-factor authentication! And please turn on Full Disk Encryption (FileVault on Mac) on your computer. And of course, whether you're at the office or somewhere else, be sure to lock your computer whenever you are AFK.
For sharing secure stuff with each other we LastPass. Be sure to download that! If you need it, your team will also mention this, so don’t worry! Oh, and in case you’re wondering: we don’t share any passwords via Slack or Google.
This might be one of the most important questions: Who would you like to work with? You might have noticed: we’re expanding! While trying to conquer the world, we need to gather our own army of crazy about their work professionals. We still have a lot of vacancies open… but apart from them, we’re always looking for new recruits. So, do you know anyone fitting the (or a) profile? Let them know we’re looking for ‘em or let HR know they need to contact them.
Part 3: Let’s intro the shit out of this:
You’ve made it to the end of this post. Respect. Last but not least is introducing yourself. How? Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org before your first day.
The idea behind it is that your new colleagues get a glimpse of who you are, what you like/dislike, why you are joining Intempt and what you’re going to do. Yes we are suckers for gifs, but we’d like a picture of you even more. Nothing fancy, just you.Oh, and short = sweet. Nothing like this enormous onboarding post...
