Freshworks, the eternal startup

Silo Mentality - two words that are deafening enough to cause panic in most corporates. As one scales up from a start-up, how does a company break the silo? How do we embrace a simple yet effective agile framework? 

In this Episode of Freshtalks our Senior VP of Engineering STS. Prasad talks to us about how at Freshworks large teams work like a startup and deliver world-class products to our customers. We speak about the Freshwave model - an inhouse initiative to help/support our engineering teams. This model helped build a solid foundation for our engineering teams. This agile Framework consistently helps us deliver ‘WoW’ moments to our customers. STS carries an ocean of knowledge in engineering and the startup world, if you are someone who is an engineer, a business who is just about to scale up or someone with a keen interest in the SaaS industry, this is the Podcast for you.
