On a large scale, the LeafLink team collaborates during “Huddle Booze Report” (HBR), a biweekly meeting where team leaders present on company KPIs, accomplishments, and challenges (with some beers). Every member of the team is welcome to comment or ask questions, bringing forth their thoughts and ideas.

Claire

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As cliche as it may sound, one of my favorite things at LeafLink is that no day is ever the same. I’m excited to go into the office every single day to see what the day brings. At LeafLink, EVERYONE has a voice. In addition to the breakout success our service saw in California, my life also drastically changed. I saw my earnings increase over 300%

Josh

Account Executive, LA Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As co-founder and CTO it’s important for me to maintain official communication channels with teams and individuals. We have various meetings that bring leadership together with teams which include sprint demos, retrospects, daily standups and one on one meetings. Open communication supports alignment and productivity something we are all about here
