The Manager's Guide to Onboarding at Mattermost

Mentor For The Day 

  • Schedule a 1-1 each day between new staff and team members (including QA and PM) and other devs who would be relevant to meet with for the first two weeks
    • These meetings should be about 30 minutes and do not need to be focused on work topics. They should spend some time getting to know each other
    • The first 1-1 should be between you and the new staff member
  • In addition to the above 1-1s, you should meet personally with the new staff member for 5-10 minutes every day for the first week or so to make sure everything is going well

Channels and Teams 

  • Make sure new staff is added to the private team Private Core and all relevant channels
  • See here for basic list of channels

Meetings and Accounts 

  • Add new staff member to all appropriate meetings

OneLogin Account Set-up 

  • Login to OneLogin and go to https://mattermost.onelogin.com/admin

  • Save user, then go to Applications tab
  • Add them to Developer, VPN, Vault, and Jenkins groups and save

GitHub Group Set-up 

  • The membership to the Mattermost Github organization is handle by Onelogin / Lamdba function that adds the user in the correct Github Team.

All events on this calendar are open to anyone who wants to join, and are shared here as a way for people both inside and outside R&D to be able to participate in discussions that they’re interested in, and also keep track of the work that’s happening in R&D.
