“Outrageous Transparency; Outstanding Culture”
We strive to achieve a culture whereby our clients love our service, respect our knowledge and enjoy incomparable return-on-investment. From our team’s perspective, Chaleit is like a family. A safe and supportive environment where talent is nurtured, excellence is celebrated and respect is everything.
STRONG VALUES & ETHICS
At our core are a series of very strong values and ethics:
- Transparency, Honesty, Integrity, Simplicity
- Valuing Our Clients & Being Part of Their Extended Team
- Caring About & Growing Our People
- Supporting a Learning & Growth Culture
- Adopting a No-Blame, No Over Utilisation Culture
- Always Striving for the “Right Way” Rather Than the “Quick Way”
- Remaining Team Oriented & Humble
WHO SAID CYBER IS NOT PERSONAL?
After many years of creating, crafting, and operating cyber-centric enterprises, we recognise that whilst perfection is not possible, we strive to continually push our standards and raise our human goals. We know that our industry, our business, and indeed the world, is only ever as good as the people within it.
Our standards are high, but then we assume that if you are considering a role with Chaleit, then yours are too. We look for people that are serious about improving themselves, care about the client, the amazing quality of their work and sharing insights and information with those around them. We hire super creative and outlandishly talented people, but we do not expect you to know it all. Our employment process is very fair, very inclusive and what we hope for you, is a very enjoyable process. It’s very Chaleit.
Given the nature of our client engagements, most of which are one year or longer, we have created a stability that, in our industry at least, is somewhat rare. Providing Cyber-As-A-Service creates value, seriously stimulating projects and an environment within which to learn about new areas of technology with peers and mentors. We abolished yearly formal reviews in place of weekly 1:1s so we can keep close. It has also proven to keep our attrition rates to incredibly low levels.
LEARNING & GROWTH
Chaleit has a learning and growth program which we encourage everyone to join and strive to improve continuously. Success in this area, your success, is just as important to our management team as profit and financial growth. For our leadership team there is the exciting and unique opportunity to engage with the multi-dimensional, Chaleit MBA Program.
Long gone, in our eyes at least, are the days of specifying start times for people, and tracking and controlling hours. We recognise that quality work is best achieved with equal measure of quality of life. Chaleit drives a culture of trust, respect, reward and recognises that success is a two-way street.
Whilst we have formal reporting structures, we do not manage ‘top down’. Rather time has taught us to manage bottom up. “How can we help you? What would you like to learn and how would you like to grow? What project area or tech stream gets you out of bed in the morning?” We never underestimate the ability of our entire team, from the most junior to the most senior, to be great leaders.
DIFFERENT TO PEN TESTING COMPANIES
We are a Cyber Security advisory firm with strong Pen Testing skills. But we also have ex-developers, compliance and governance specialists and a core of technologists who have application, cloud, code (SAST, DAST, CI/CD), infrastructure, mobile, and much wider skills. We allocate the correct skill sets to the right projects. We created Chaleit to take the pressure off the traditional Pen Testing model (for our clients and our people) and to make the whole process elastic in nature.
Our systems are more akin to that of a very large enterprise, particularly given the serious investment made to create the Chaleit model. We take our data residency and security very seriously, right alongside usability and the creation of scalable systems. At Chaleit, technology is an enabler, not a blocker. Our workflow and automation programs are continually evolving and our stack is designed to drive productivity and visibility.
CONS, SPONSORS & BEING TOGETHER
Chaleit believes in community and right from the beginning started investing with key partners to help drive openness and transparency. We actively encourage our people to participate in community, cons and get togethers. In 2023, Chaleit will embark up on getting the whole company together, in various locations at least twice a year, for our very own ‘Chally Beach Con’.
