A Little About bipp
At bipp, we like to aim high.
You see, our mission is to help all businesses seamlessly derive insights from data to help make informed decisions.
Whew. Great to say that out loud. But, as they say, the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. Or something like that. The fact is, we’ve been building a better BI platform for a couple of years now. And we’re really happy with it. But there’s work to be done, and that’s why we want your help.
Our theory is this. A bi platform should turn data models into enterprise-wide single sources of truth. The key here is that everyone in the organization is basing decisions on the same data. We also want to streamline data analysts’ queries with our bippLang data modeling language, and improve collaboration between analyst teams and across the business. All of this rolls up into dashboards that business users can use to monitor and measure performance in real time and provide focus on organizational or team KPIs.
And we’re nearly there. By launching bipp as a beta, we’re looking for feedback to get us all the way.
bipp the Company
You won’t find any ping-pong tables or kombucha on tap at bipp. Well, not unless one of our front end developers in Pune has a liking for effervescent sweetened tea. While other companies might aspire to have their name on a skyscraper in SoMa, we’re a 100 percent distributed business and are great with that.
Our team of engineers, BI analysts, front end developers, system engineers, BI developers and SQL data engineers work from their kitchen tables, bedrooms and home offices. We’ve been building the team over the past three years, and have met in person a couple of times. Remind us to tell you about the Goa offsite some time.
And we’re meeting at least once a day on Zoom. We’re focused on developing the best BI platform we can. They’re not with us because they want a pro foosball trainer. They want to solve the most interesting BI and coding problems in the world. They’re creating new things every day, and learning from some of the smartest BI and ML folks in the business. They’re getting things done, and share our focus on realizing the role data can and should play in decision-making.
What We Value
Values are only as good as the coffee mug they’re printed on if you don’t feel them in your day-to-day. So we got the team together and looked at why they joined bipp, and why they stay (we have a 90% retention rate, BTW). Here’s what we came up with. And please let us know if we’re not living up to these.
We put in our best effort, but we don’t feel entitled to the desired outcome.
We take pride in ownership (of an idea or code) and being innovative.
Fast and fun
We are most productive when we combine seriousness of intent with the fun of execution.
We are focused on outcomes, and work as a team to deliver results quickly.
Supportive and collaborative
We derive our individual sense of success and accomplishment from the success of our team.
Mindful and humble
When we practice mindfulness, we focus on the moment rather than rehashing the past
We value being open to new perspectives, and being humble and authentic at all times
