Building an accurate and inclusive roster for your staff is key to making sure your business runs smoothly.

The changes to the roster […]

27 June, 2016 Alex Ghiculescu

Since 2012 Tanda has grown from me and a few mates in a share-house to a business employing 30 people. Most of that growth was in the last 18 months, as both our product and customer success teams have tripled in size. There’s been growing pains, but I’m happy with the point we are at […]

The dev team takes a break

11 May, 2016 Alex Ghiculescu

Last week I wanted to try something new, so I yanked our entire development team out of the office and threw them onto a ferry to Stradbroke Island. I had read about the idea of doing team retreats – complete with “team building”, trust falls, and other corny sounding topics – but I had a […]
