Nomad8 is a home for consultants. We share everything and we help each other. We learn from each other and we’ve got each other’s backs. We are each other’s work family.
We don’t have a shareholder model or owners who can get rich through other people’s work. Nomad8 as a company is not set up to make money – people who do the work directly take the majority of what they earn.
We work with clients who we like and respect. We choose clients we wish to help and whose potential we can see. We love to help them create fun, playful, creative, collaborative and disciplined Agile teams and work places. We never work over capacity and we refer clients who don’t share our values to other consultancies.
None of us are employed by Nomad8. We simply don’t want to deal with the hassle of employing and managing people so we all run as either sole contractors or companies in the background.
As a general rule people keep the majority of the money they make. If they work a lot they make a lot, if they work less they make less.
People usually find their own work but we make sure that we all have interesting and fulfilling work to do and we share the good stuff and the tough stuff. We’ve got each others’ backs.
We see being part of Nomad8 as a privilege, and we all leave a small percentage of our monthly income in the company. In addition there is a monthly subsidy. Regard it as kind of a membership fee.
This money covers some of the costs of running Nomad8, but also compensates the owners for the time that goes into keeping things humming, which is effectively time they can’t be doing chargeable work.
The values of Nomad8 manifest in various aspects of the way we work, communicate, and go about our daily lives. They include:
We are selective about our clients.
We will communicate with each other.
We will make ourselves available to each other.
How we work with each other
We should never be average!
We share our Intellectual Property
We decide together whether someone can join
