What are some examples of creative startup culture hacks?

By 'culture hack’ I’m referring to quirky routines or rituals that help to define and build culture. I love the stories of rewarding failure at Google X, Basecamp letting employees dictate their own notification times and Full Contact's Paid Paid Vacation. Curious to hear of others out there!

    You should check Buffer's blog. They share lots of their culture hacks, including assigning a new work-buddy to each of their team each week, cultivating a culture of radical transparency, working remotely, valuing their work-life balance and well-being, etc.

    I just finished reading this article and it talks a lot about the mindset of a developer. I think making a good culture is about understanding that mindset, locating what is missing in your team and finding your own creative solution to that. I think, in essence, this essay talks about the empathy, between the developers and the people responsible for keeping the business running. Having some way to ease this communication will go a long way. Disclaimer: I have not yet managed a Dev. team in my company, but i have been a making software for the last 10 years and i relate a lot with what the author is trying to say.

    A lot of amazing culture resources can be found on Culture Codes. Check out the Netflix deck in particular. Certainly more deliberate decisions were made there than creating v"culture hacks".
