I’m super excited to share that Niel de la Rouviere has finished the 45 day Buffer Bootcamp* and recently accepted our invitation to join the Buffer team full-time!
Niel signed up for Buffer very early (October 2011) and had been on the Awesome Plan for a whole year before starting to work with us! In addition, he is an incredible fit with the culture we have in place at Buffer. I personally have enjoyed numerous interesting conversations about our different values such as transparency and self-improvement.

*A little about the intro period: Everyone who starts at Buffer is at first a contractor for 45 days. We see that time similar to a dating period. The reason for this is actually quite simple. It always felt a bit odd to me to make a full commitment after a few interviews for someone to start full-time. Instead, we felt it’s better that the company and the new person on the team both get to know each other quite a bit beforehand. During that intro period, we place a special focus on looking for culture fit and alignment with the Buffer values.
