LaunchDarkly is by far the earliest startup I have been a part of, and from day one, I felt a responsibility and opportunity to contribute to its limitless potential. I considered my last company a startup (around 400 employees when I joined), but I have quickly realized that was not an accurate description. While there was some startup culture still present (and that’s what I liked about it), LaunchDarkly embodies everything I could want from a startup.
It all starts with the product and the market opportunity. As a sales professional I was looking for a product that had a positive reception from customers and stories of providing real value- this was evident on day one. From a new user excited to set up their first feature flag, to a current customer relaying that LaunchDarkly has completely revolutionized their dev process for the better- it has been all positive feedback so far.
