Tribe has decided to turn the tech staffing industry on its head: giving power to the developers, data scientists, and designer talent themselves.
Tribe is a platform where companies can connect with technologists and designers to complete projects. As a worker cooperative, the people completing the work are also owners of Tribe. Under the cooperative model, the people who complete the work have ownership — and therefore a vote as a shareholder — in how the company is run.
“Responsibility toward the people that you’re building this thing with is the main component,” said Tribe Cofounder Jeremy Neal.
It’s set up so that Tribe’s members have a say in key decisions, on contracts and what companies Tribe works with. There’s also a share in the profits. That’s distinct from a business model where those first in the door often get the biggest rewards upon financial success.
“All of the people that work on anything at any point build toward that,” Neal said of the growth that brings sustainability to a company, “and we think there should be equal value spread to everyone.”
