Hey friends 👋,

Welcome to the 88 new DTTO subscribers who joined us since last Tuesday.

Every week I'll send you a summary of the latest modern teams we've been researching (+ current job openings).

Don't settle for an unhealthy team

A Skynova survey showed only 37% of employees say their teams are healthy (a team built on trust and friendliness).

This matches my experience. Over the course of my career about 1 in 3 of the teams I have worked on had a healthy culture. 

I have always lived by a simple career rule. If I began dreading work with a colleague or manager, it was time for change. The type of anxiety where you're thinking about work 24/7 and second guessing every comment from your boss is horrible. It's a flashing neon sign that something has to change.

Trust and friendliness don't cost you anything. As a manager or colleague, showing up with these attributes makes work worthwhile. 

If you find yourself on an unhealthy team, don't settle. There are more forward-thinking teams being built than ever before. Be patient. Research the people, culture, values and benefits. Find a healthier team.

Interview with Taylan Pince, Founder of Hipo

  • Tell us about what you do and where your team is located. 
    We are a remote-first product agency, with teammates currently residing in Ireland, Spain, Germany and Turkey. We specialize in solving complex product problems and launching complete platforms, with a focus on fintech and blockchain industries.
  • What's a modern benefit you offer your team that isn't mainstream yet?
    Despite the fast pace of our products, we are proud to maintain a "marathon" mindset at work. We make time for self-growth and hobbies, never work on weekends or after hours. We have a "delete Slack" policy when on vacation. We offer education and conference budgets, as well as organizing our yearly in-person retreat for the whole team. This year it's happening in Bodrum, Turkey, at a beautiful resort.

    Perhaps most importantly, we have an innovative equity distribution program that allows all of our teammates to benefit from the equity partnerships that Hipo makes. We have significant ownership of every product we develop, and when we have an exit scenario, we redistribute 20% of the value of the exit to our team, every time.
  • Tell us about your approach to meetings vs async communication? 
    We keep synchronous meetings to a single, half-hour meeting per week. This is mainly for alignment and making sure priorities are good to go. All other discussion is on Slack, with sync Zoom calls whenever needed (usually 5-10 minute quick chats). Our strength comes from a detailed product spec documentation and ticketing process, since shared documents allow the team to sync without having to talk things through all the time.
  • What's your favourite tool for remote collaboration? 
    No surprises here: Work revolves around Slack and Zoom at Hipo. If I had to pick one, it would be Slack since it allows asynchronous communication.
  • Can you give us one prediction for the future of work? 
    I believe that teams that can straddle the fine line between centralized culture and processes with decentralized / async decision mechanisms with small, remote and independent work groups will win the future and deliver exceptional products.
