We're Action Verb
We build platforms and infrastructure that engineers and marketing professionals use to power their services. Our products include BrickFTP and Vae Platform, and are used by over 2,000 enterprises and small businesses, including Mozilla, Canonical, UPS, DirecTV, GoPro, Marriott, and more.
Currently we are 12 full-time USA-based engineers, along with a team of sales and support staff in France, Germany, and Latin America.
Our Success Strategy
We've been able to achieve the rare combination of high double-digit annual growth and industry leading profitability. We do it by aggressively recruiting the absolute best and brightest engineers and structuring our company in a way that makes them want to work here forever.
It's easy to say, but exceptionally hard to execute. Here's how we do it:
We Practice Holacracy
We are an early adopter of Holacracy, a new style of running an organization in a self-organizing manner that draws inspiration from agile software development and lean manufacturing processes.
Rather than hiring people for exactly one job description, we instead look to find well-rounded team members with skills in software engineering, design, marketing, sales, and other areas, who are interested in filling multiple roles within the organization.
As a self-organizing team, our people have multiple roles and our role descriptions are regularly updated in small iterations. As their interests and business needs change, the roles that are filled evolve dynamically over time.
“Most startups believe in iteration of their products. Now they need to apply the same thinking to their organizations.”– Adam Pisoni, Yammer co-founder & CTO
We Use Open-Book Management
We also practice open book management, meaning that we share the exact details of our balance sheet and P&L statement with our entire team in real time, ensuring that our staff has the data they need to act and make decisions as if the business was their own.
