As we enter the 15th year of our company, we feel we have a primitive understanding of our customers' needs and how we could help them better leverage digital space to sell more effectively. Our mission is to make ecommerce effortless for business people so that they can bring their focus back to where it belongs - in their product. We as technology people usually follow the zuckerian concept of ‘move fast and break things’ but for us, we’d say ‘been there, done that’ and now that our product is used by hundreds of businesses to serve thousands of clients it requires us to build nothing less than an excellent product.
Excellence is an age-old phenomenon. One of the earliest mentions of excellence is found in Greek literature where it is referred to as Arete and is termed as the highest virtue, often associated with heroes or gladiators (more on Arete below). Since we have pledged for excellence, we have put together our best people to form the ‘Product Excellence’ (PE) team to take the moon-shot and are looking for like-minded people that feel they have learned enough to bring brilliance to the workplace. We would like to invite all the ‘misfits', the ‘crazy ones’ and the ones that dream to push the human race forward, come be a part of our twisted team in our moral pursuit of excellence.
“Arete is a concept in ancient Greek thought that refers to excellence of any kind. The term may also mean moral virtue. In its earliest appearance in Greek, this notion of excellence was ultimately bound up with the notion of the fulfillment of purpose or function: the act of living up to one's full potential.”
Originating from Plato’s allegory of the cave, the ancient Greek saw everything from the lense of excellence - especially the excellence of a man. In the Homerian world, arete is used to define heroes and nobles in reference to their courage.
