We’re a super-ambitious business and we’re well set for a phenomenal period of expansion — with our plan to grow 10x within the next five years. We’re opening into new markets — with partnerships in Australia and North America — growing exceptionally fast, and of course, supporting our existing partners in every way we can to add value and help them scale without limits. But it wouldn’t be possible without our people, and the individual and team contributions that propel us forward.

Building successful development teams is what we do best and what we know by heart. Indeed, a key ethos within The Scalers is putting people at the heart of everything we do. But what does that mean in real terms? How do our leadership apply this principle in their day-to-day decisions? And, what does being a leader mean to them? What did we learn from our mistakes? In an inside look at the thoughts and minds of our senior team, let’s take a look at what they have to say.

Quality first, powered by people

A team is only as strong as its weakest link, and that means hiring well is one of the most critical aspects of building a successful business. The Scalers is no different. By building teams successfully, quality is the natural result. It’s about incremental improvements both within our business and those of our partners. And, with each new quality hire — that becomes a little easier to achieve successfully. And perhaps most importantly, where people come from or where they live isn’t important — what’s key is the skill and quality they bring to the table. And, how they fit into the team on a company-culture level.

Never being afraid to try something new

Innovation isn’t possible without taking calculated risks now and then. And it’s important not to be afraid to fail, but to see failure as an opportunity to grow and learn. With such high targets for the upcoming few years, it wouldn’t be possible without taking risks, exploring new opportunities, and daring to venture down new avenues. The most important thing is that we head down these paths together, as a people-centric business.
