jennifer dianne thomas founder's update may 5, 2017
Transparency is my word of the week! I think I have uttered this word on every conference call. When I initially joined the company one of the first things Dooma shared with me was his firm belief that our agreements should be accessible to all employees. Everyone can see what other people have negotiated. This was revolutionary to me! No other start-ups I have worked with have had this policy. This philosophy serves us well. I think it keeps everyone striving to work towards the same goals without feeling like someone else is their competition. Also, when we negotiate with 3rd parties I think our tendency to be transparent lets people know that we do not play games. In my opinion, this approach makes us look powerful and stern but also fair and nimble.
