Like most IT companies, Standuply crew has a cozy office too, where we go to work every day. As an office team, we managed to reach considerable heights in product building, but it was time to expand the team.

So, like a lot of distributed startups, we’re on Slack. It lets us ping each other fast, wherever we are. The challenge, of course, is to make sense of all the information flying around in Slack...
