“At HubSpot (I helped grow the team from 5 to 1000+ employees), part of what helped us scale fast and still maintain our culture was our extensive use of an internal wiki.”
More than ever before, we have instant access to information and one another. In seconds, we can find answers, connect with people, and share our voice with the world.
But when we go to work, these same tasks are frustrating, complex, or impossible. We can’t find answers quickly. We have barriers between us and our teammates.
It’s time our work lives caught up to the rest of our lives. It’s time to stop searching for how to do our jobs and instead start maximizing our ability to do them well.
we believe having an open and transparent culture, free of roadblocks, empowers teams to do their best work. That means that communication and access to information are open to every team member, from the CEO to the newest intern.
Our founders experienced first-hand just how powerful a transparent culture can be at a company called HubSpot. We built our knowledge management platform to bring that type of culture to more teams around the world.
For knowledge workers on fast growing teams, Tettra makes it easy to organize and share knowledge because it connects directly to Slack.
We know how Slack does wonders for enabling transparent communication. Since so much knowledge sharing already happens in Slack, we built Tettra to work hand-in-hand with it.
We’re a team of makers in Boston, MA who take great pride in our work and want to create impactful and sustainable company. To do that, we believe that we should follow these "culture directives":
Talk to customers
Instead of guessing, try talking directly to a customer when you need to solve a problem.
Prioritize customer impact
Always try to prioritize doing things that directly help customers over things that make us feel good.
Reduce scope before quality
When making tradeoffs, always reduce the size or scope of a project before its quality.
Share early and often
We have the tendency to hide our work until we think it's perfect. Fight that urge and share your work, data, and ideas early and often.
Never assume something is unchangeable. Relentlessly seek the truth. Never assume someone is attacking you for asking questions.
Don’t burn out
It's a marathon, not a sprint. Use your time wisely, work hard while you're at work and live well when you're not.
Homogenous thinking can be dangerous. Seek other viewpoints, experiences, and backgrounds to enrich all the work you do.
