Central Services

In order to enable VSHN’s core business, provide things and tooling for VSHNeers, fulfill employer obligations and comply with legal and financial regulations, VSHN must provide certain internal services to support the teams.

We need a team that has overall accountability for all of these things and then can divide into sub-teams to better serve that overall purpose and organize themselves.

We also need a team that can be a "home" for people who are not otherwise in any other Team because they only work in Workgroups, Management, etc.

This domain and team is currently being split into various team-independent roles like People, People Operations, Recuriting, Finance, Finance Operations, Procurement, with more to follow.
