New Year’s Eve is approaching and this means that It’s time for our traditional year-end sum-up. But this time, I’d like to take a little bit bigger step back in time. Back to 2015.
It’s been more than 4 years since Woodpecker kicked off. A lot has happened since then. We built a team of almost 60 people and have more than 2500 customers onboard from around 67 countries and various industries. It’s been a time of intensive development for us.
Let’s see what’s been going on since Woodpecker‘s early days and where we’re now.
Remember our previous blog post about Woodpecker Partner Program? Back then, the program was in its beginnings. And that was when? In the spring of 2017. Now, we’ve entered the first quarter of 2019, and all of that stands to prove that it’s the best time for those of you to get involved.
A lot has happened last year. Woodpecker had many feature updates, launches, and overall company growth. Suffice it to say that we have many good things to share with you. I’d love to sum up 2018 at Woodpecker with you today so that we can enter the new year full of fresh ideas. What do you think?
Recently our CEO Matt Tarczynski, together with two other start-up founders, took part in an interview broadcasted by Radio Wroclaw. They engaged in an interesting discussion about modern labor market trends, the role of a leader in the modern world and Millennials’ attitude towards work, money, and life in general.
Between the lines, Matt gave some first-hand insights about the core values we live by in Woodpecker. Read more what principles we cherish at Woodpecker.
Even though two months have lapsed, I’d like to recap you on the third Woodpecker Meeting that took place on May 25, 2018, a single day when we all meet together to celebrate and listen to team presentations. It has slowly but surely become a custom for the Woodpecker team. The first meeting was set up to celebrate reaching 150 premium users, the second one — 800. Read more to find out what we discussed in the third one.
I don’t know how it works at your company, but lately, I’ve realized that at Woodpecker we usually run ahead and we hardly ever have time to look back. And that’s a shame, really. Sometimes it’s good to look back and realize how far you have gone. That may give you a broader perspective and some fresh energy. I took a look at 2017 and it turns out it has been a fantastic year. It was so thanks to you, our dearest customers, partners, blog readers, and friends. I’ve put together a little recap here, so you could see for yourselves what we can be really grateful for at Woodpecker.
This month, we hit the magic number of 1000 B2B customers at Woodpecker.co. We decided to celebrate in a very special way. This time, instead of preparing a rough-numbers report, we decided to surprise you with a natural science article about great spotted woodpecker’s vs. Woodpecker.co’s life cycle. Check in what ways Woodpecker resembles its natural counterpart and learn more about Woodpecker‘s symbionts (a.k.a. customers).
This week, Woodpecker got featured by Siftery, the platform for sharing work tool stacks and recommending software. The guys at Siftery have been creating a series of interviews with product creators and company founders, and the interview with Matt has been published in their Stories section at the beginning of this week. We’re sharing the interview with you here as well. Keep reading to find out more about Woodpecker customers, our greatest challenges, and the “why” behind Woodpecker.
Not even a year ago, I wrote here about Woodpecker Meeting I. We had 150 customers then. This year, we met again. And we were talking about new challenges that we’ll be facing as a SaaS company with over 800 B2B companies as premium customers on board. Keep on reading to learn about the people of Woodpecker – our daily routines, challenges, plans, and visions. Take a peek at some photos of our team at Woodpecker Meeting II.
Woodpecker Partner Program kicked off just a couple of months ago. We’ve created it to support the companies and the people who refer Woodpecker to their partners, customers, and friends. Today the program includes over 80 partners. In this post, I wanted to give you a little summary on how it works, who can be a part of it, and how we plan to develop it in the future. Read on to check what you can gain by becoming our partner.
