How about some good news?

In the avalanche of emails about virtually every corporation’s response to COVID-19, we’ve all heard the standard messages - "We’re all in this together", "We’re here for you", and "Your health and safety is our top priority". These standard lines don’t mean much after the 10th time you’ve seen it from every company you have given your email address at one time or another.

While studying for my Project Management Professional (PMP) certification, a statistic that stood out to me was that nearly 17% of software projects fail. Though the blame might fall on many shoulders - everything from inaccurate requirements, changing objectives, and neglectful project stakeholders, I feel that the real culprit is the lack of effective Project Management.

Recruiting has always been an incredibly time-intensive process, and it has been increasing in recent years. When you’re dealing with upwards of 5,000 candidates per year, recruiting becomes a numbers game that’s very hard to win. Coupled by the fact that the best candidates are only in the market for ten days, identifying only the top 5% of candidates that apply as potential members of our team in a fast way makes it a challenging task to cover our open positions.

Starting a new job is stressful. There are so many new people to meet, names to remember, procedures to learn, routines to follow, and policies to understand which can make those first few days and weeks feel pretty overwhelming. At Unosquare, we know that the three-hour new employee orientation from HR isn't enough to cover everything a team member needs to know. Furthermore, when we follow a traditional format of delivering a large amount of information all at once, valuable, but nuanced information is sometimes overlooked. We need our team members to consider different aspects of our company culture, workplace procedures, and all the activities that take place during and after work.

The last twelve months have been integral in our continuous effort to refine and improve our delivery process both for our engineers and our customers. In June 2018, we started a pilot program creating the role of Engineering Manager on our Delivery Services teams. The pilot proved to be successful in the first 25 teams, so starting in 2019, we’ve expanded to roughly 120 teams and plan to add more in the future.

I love living in the digital age. We're in the midst of an era where entire companies can- and do- run with a workforce fully distributed across the globe. At Unosquare, we support remote work for large numbers of our employees, and we've seen the positive results time and again since we started business 10 years ago. As a company we believe in using the best tools for effective communication and I’m here to advocate for bringing back an oldie but a goodie - the webcam.

I’m incredibly proud that Unosquare made the 2019 Inc. 5000 - the list of the 5,000 fastest-growing companies in the U.S. But even more significant is that it’s our fifth year in a row to achieve this status. Since it started in 1982, only four percent of companies have made the list five times. Additionally, this year, Unosquare celebrated its 10th birthday, which adds another layer of context to this honor: our first five years set the foundation for us to grow at an astonishing rate.
