We did it! We just reached the most important metric in the history of Bricknode. As Jim Collins puts it in his great books, this metric is “the percentage of key seats on the bus that are filled with the right people for those seats”. We just reached 100 %!
I see articles each day where companies are saying that the most challenging thing for them is to recruit the right people.
It is difficult for a company to grow faster than its ability to get enough of the right people but now we are there. One of the core values that we believe in is endurance and long-term thinking. A lot of things in life comes down to pure luck but by having endurance we expose ourselves to luck over a longer period and increase our odds for reaching our vision to be the BEST Platform on Earth for Financial Products!
We have managed to embrace working globally and we are completely flexible with when and from where our team members are working. We are in multiple countries, and we are having a blast each day, who would have thought that we would reach this level of team and product while being completely independent and coming from an unknown small town in Sweden! I would say that Bricknode completely embodies what ROWE means.
Our purpose is to make sure that great consumer friendly financial products and services reach the market and never die from the lack of available tools or from having to fight the giants of the financial industry.
I remember myself the day that we got our first API launched at Bricknode and how the possibilities of building anything for finance just opened up in front of me.
Now we have reached the first big goal and now just watch us as we motor on to the next one!
Please take a few minutes and listen to my reasoning around this blog post.
