When our remote team would work together in a shared office, our collaboration and sense of camaraderie would skyrocket. We used Slack for asynchronous communication, but we felt like something was still missing.
We tried stand-ups & pairing sessions in Zoom. We tried Slack’s video calls. We even set up our own Discord server for a few weeks, and that’s when it hit us: we were missing the sights & sounds of a shared office. We were missing serendipitous interactions like hearing our names mentioned from across the room or joining impromptu conversations.
So we took all we learned from using tools like Google Hangouts, GoToMeeting, Talky.io, and Appear.in, and we began the long and arduous process of creating a tool of our own, one where remote teams could finally collaborate like they were working in the same room.
The best employees are happy employees. And the happiest employees are those who get to do work they love, with teams they love, in the places they love.
We believe the need to be heard and understood is a core characteristic of being human. Unconditional, skillful listening is a precious gift always worth giving.
Society is more connected than ever, and yet more isolated than ever. Real conversations have the power to break through walls of isolation.
