My saas story nov18 growth team foundation

This is a part of a series documenting our startup story. Check more on “My-saas-story.”

Last month it was the first month we entirely used OKR method to focus our growth. I am pleased regarding our results and how we communicate between team members. We had finalized our roadmap and posted in on a website. Also, we added consulting tab (hopefully we’ll start earning some money - fingers crossed). At the end of the month, I’ve found about growth teams and theories from Sean Ellis. I’ve introduced the team to work in agile experimenting mode, and they seem to like it!

The upcoming month we’ll focus on testing new ideas for growth like viral sharing, launching first paid features (backend faker front end queries) and many other small updates ;]


We’ve developed frontend queries to enable fronted users autocomplete query in typescript and receive typesafe response. On backend side we deployed project API and faker Service which soon will be available to all of you. Stay Tuned!

OKR’s update

OKR’s seems to be a good foundation for the small team to maintain focus. This month we added a minor tweak to precise few positions and to measure many experiments.
