- Follow Up Boss
Follow Up Boss is the leading CRM for fast-growing real estate teams. Our first line of code was written in 2011 after an interview with a real estate leader, who told us a story about how he couldn't even sit down to watch a movie with his kids because he had to stay on his phone, manually forwarding leads out to his agents. He became our very first customer. Ten years later, we serve thousands of brokers, team leaders and solo agents just like him, helping solve the many challenges around the fast-paced, always-on, relentless business of real estate sales.We are currently a team of 98, all working 100% remotely since day one. Our company is self-funded, profitable and independent, which gives us the freedom to focus on the success of our customers and our team.
In a traditional product team, people work on a single stack for years at a time, and it can be hard to feel a sense of progression. At a busy agency, there’s often a high churn of projects, with less opportunity to learn and improve.At Etch, we work with just a handful of companies, each with its own objective and tech stack. This opens us to a wide knowledge base, solving problems in different frameworks and industries, whilst being able to apply what we’ve learned in different contexts.Our processes and tools can change to suit each client, but we take the same lean approach on every project – using our time and expertise to add the most value we can.We’re a small team, but we punch above our weight, producing work that rivals the output of larger agencies. Each member is self-driven and has the desire to make better software. We care about our craft, and we’re always learning.
- Six to Start
We make content for absolutely everyoneAt Six to Start we believe in everyone's right to exist and be seen. We tell diverse stories in our app with caring, idealistic characters that our players love. Our workplace reflects this mission with our commitment to equality, inclusion and mutual support. Here's what some of our players say:"I love this beautiful inclusive world you've created that you've allowed us to be a part of. Zombies, Run! has helped me through a lot of trying times and I don't know what I'd be doing without y'all.""Zombies, Run is an exercise app, but its ALSO an incredible audio podcast where u are the main character. has lovable diverse cast of chars. and motivates you IRL to exercise at any pace you prefer! its literally the only thing thats ever made me exercise for fun and i love it."We are not a startupWe think "hustle" is code for overwork. From the way we plan projects onward, we do everything we can to ensure people work 40 hours a week even in release-heavy months. We also support part-time working and extra flexibillity for meeting needs and challenges like caring for others, crisis and personal health.We prefer stable software and established patternsWe consider a clever solution to be one that takes less code and effort than anticipated, rather than something that no-one has ever seen before. The best documentation is the documentation we don't even have to write, because someone else already wrote it.
