Gilles Domartini | Thu Jul 07 2016 CET | Cleeng Nuts & Bolts
Traditionally, as we approach the summer, we gather the whole Cleeng team dispersed all over the world (Amsterdam, Poznan, New York, Texas) and discuss the company’s past, present and future. This was the 3rd event so far, after Cleeng 3D (Dare, Drive Deliver) in 2014, and Excelerate in 2015. Like every ambitious start-up, we are analyzing our journey through all the successes and failures. Based on that, we set up plans how to optimize processes which should drive us to reaching our “heights”. That’s one big reason we named this gathering “Growth Odyssey” and here are the main points we want to stress.
So many great competences are in the team. Just throwing a few stats:
We are very pleased to have welcomed Stijn, Jake, Dawid, Rekha, Agnieska, Maciej, Dime, Jarek, Prem in the last 6 months. We certainly doubled our collective IQ :).
Cleeng is now a key player in the vast online video ecosystem and we exactly know our position and role in it. Live pay-per-view video is our focus, SVOD & OTT is fast expanding, and we are developing our technology to be the indisputable leader in those categories. These are the 3 key pillars that define what Cleeng provides:
We know why clients choose us as a reliable partner:
In the past 3 months alone, we are extremely excited to have added Chivas Club Deportivo Guadalajara (Mexico), TVN (Chile), ProFastPitch (US), NHRA (US), Setanta (Ireland), GoldenBoy/HBO Boxing (US), just to name a few. A BIG thank you to all of them for their trust. They relied on us to deliver their live pay-per-view or subscription video services and it worked.
We believe strongly that today’s successful company primeraly depend on human assets. Only with a great team you can build great product, find great clients, hire great profile, etc. We realize more and more as we accelerate our growth that what bonds these human assets is the company culture. The company culture is at the core of our diverse and international organisation. After 5 years of operations, we decided it was time to formalize our “Culture Code”.
We summarize as follows:
Next to these key attributes, we also believe that:
We perceive that having a well-defined culture code will boost the performance of the whole team and enable each employee to be happy with his role and work inside the organisation.
And we are ecstatic that our Cleeng-ons are team players and know how the have fun.
I cannot wait for the the next coming months. We have incredible products coming, new talent joining (if you are interested and believe you share our values, check our Jobs section), and extremely exciting new client projects. Stay tuned!
