  • One of my goals for my summer internship at Quip was to be held accountable and have responsibilities at the level of a regular full-time employee. While every company boasts that their interns get to work on impactful projects, in my past experiences interns are still spoiled — showered with piles of swag and expected to work normal hours regardless of the intense hours full-time employees wo...

Dreamforce is the best place in the world to connect with other trailblazers, learn about innovation and growth, and further your career — plus, it's a lot of fun. There's so much great stuff to take in, but at the same time, it can be tough to fully disconnect from the demands of your regular job. So how does one juggle it all?...

  • For many companies, the biggest success factor is how well its sales team can execute. And sales people have a tough job with unique challenges. They travel frequently to meet with prospects and customers, attend industry events, and represent their companies at conferences and trade shows. Most of their work happens away from the office, and away from their teammates — so how can these road war...

  • Human connection is at the core of every business. Whether you're engaging with coworkers, managers, staff, customers, or partners — for anything to get done, people need to communicate with each other. The buzzword for these activities is collaboration, which of course means we have collaboration software (and a lot of it). This might be the part of the blog post where I'd be expected to say, “...

  • When you think about a strong leader, what personality traits come to mind? Is this person gregarious and opinionated? Someone who craves the spotlight, and is maybe even a little domineering? A lot of our leaders are like this, and sometimes it pans out — other times, not so much. But what about us introverted leaders? Is there room for them in today's business world? If I'm any example, the an...

  • I've been a product manager in training for 20 years. Yep, you read that right — the learning never stops, and you can always become better. The experiences I have collected could fill a book, but there is one particular fear that has caused me to lose sleep over the years. One question plagued my mind for far too long and I could never find a comforting solution until using Quip. "Am I really b...

  • Let’s talk about meetings. Some of us spend up to 50% of our time in meetings — but despite their ubiquity, they somehow remain one of the most loathed forms of work on the planet. They don’t start on time; people randomly decide not to show up; there’s no focus or clear plan of action; and worst of all, everyone leaves the room and nothing ever comes of the time that was spent in the meeting. C...

Some of these wonderful customer-facing improvements merit their own blog posts, like multicolored highlights. But what about the other ones? Just because they're smaller updates doesn't mean they should miss out on the blog love! So we're kicking off ...

  • Every good software team needs a product roadmap. We get that not everyone loves process and extra documents, but this one is worth it. A roadmap does more than keep your team focused and aligned — it provides a vision for your product, gives clarity around priorities, and shows stakeholders where the product is headed. It becomes a “single source of truth” for everyone involved. And when a docu...

  • In January 2016, I joined Quip as our second product manager, alongside Nate Botwick. Back then, it was a small startup working to build the future of productivity. Sixteen months later, a lot has changed: We've joined Salesforce, our team has grown to 70 people, and we've moved from one Market Street office with exposed brick walls to another. But what's struck me in this time of change is how ...

  • In some ways, office etiquette will never change. Don’t leave dirty dishes laying around. If you drink the last of the coffee, make more. Don’t steal someone else’s conference room, then pretend you can’t see them lingering outside at 10:02am, too polite to kick you out. But there are things at work that are changing pretty rapidly: technology, and the tools we use every day. As methods of team...

  • We built Quip's mobile apps to work easily and powerfully for people on the go. And there's no one that's more important for than the original road warriors: Salespeople. But too often, when salespeople are on the road they're waiting for email attachments to download, or searching through chats and inboxes for context on their deals. With Quip that doesn't have to be the case, because the mobil...

  • Ever since we launched, people have told us “Quip documents feel so alive! But when I print them, all that magic is lost.” Our best designers have iterated for years on how to preserve the richness of Quip in the physical realm — the way that a Quip document breathes teamwork, the way a spreadsheet and task list live together, the way you talk about work and do work in the same place. Every sin...
