Zoom: Their Success Didn’t Just Stem from Covid, they Mastered the Art of Profitable Growth

Zoom has become an extremely popular tool over the last several months as we’ve all been practicing “social distancing.  Individuals went from having no idea what this tool was, to conducting happy hours, parties, school, dates, brunch & tons of work conferences on the daily. You may think that Zoom just got “lucky” with this pandemic, but the truth is – they have been climbing the ladder as a successful “start-up” for the past 9 years. Covid definitely brought more traffic and attention to their products, as there has been a much higher need for it, but they were killing it before this! Zoom creator, Eric Yuan, had the vision “video is the future of communications” – and it definitely looks like that future came much faster and more abruptly than he thought.

“From the start, Zoom aspired to stand out in a market of products that were probably more hated than loved. In a letter to shareholders included with its paperwork for going public a year ago, founder and CEO Eric Yuan talked about “how unhappy” people were with the videoconference tools on the market. But that was before the pandemic. Now video conferencing tools have gone from the punchline of a dry office joke to a vital social lifeline — and perhaps none more so than Zoom.” an article from CNN Business stated.

In recent weeks, Zoom has emerged as the most downloaded app on the Apple App Store, repeatedly breaking its download records. On Monday March 23, Zoom was downloaded 2.13 million times worldwide, up from 2.04 million the day before, according to app tracking firm Apptopia. Two months prior, the app had just under 56,000 global downloads in a day.

Another key metric in Zoom’s success is Yuan’s vision for company culture.His focus was to build a company culture around promoting “happiness. Very early on, we spoke about customer experience and culture; two things he really cared about,” said Quinn Li, senior vice president of Qualcomm Ventures, an early Zoom investor. “He would write back to any customer that would write to him, which is very rare for a company CEO to do.”

At Spigot, Inc. we all really love Zoom! We also appreciate a company with the drive to win, willingness to please users and a great company culture. This article really does show how much hard work pays off – especially for a small start up, they went from a small video conferencing tool, to going public and competing with Skype.

Spigot, Inc. is also rapidly growing! With more individuals at home, traffic to our products has increased – and we are STILL hiring! Send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review!

Week 3 of Quarantine: Spigot, Inc. Employees Are Getting Creative

If you’ve been following our blog – you have seen that Spigot, Inc. has been in quarantine for 3 weeks now, and that they’ve found plenty of things to keep themselves (and their kids, “new coworkers.”) busy. Quarantine has been a good way to unwind from the chaos of everyday life, but have we gone crazy yet?! Some say that they are still good – practicing a healthier lifestyle, spending more time eating dinners with family and catching up on all the shows they’ve ever wanted to watch on Netflix (and Tiger King), but others are ready for this to be over! Thankfully in the business we are in – we are in the position to make MORE money because people are at home, scrolling through the internet and clicking on ads. Not only that – Spigot, Inc. is used to working remotely with their international offices, and sister companies. We have also found that we are just as productive (if not more) while working from home, so we are set from that perspective!

Outside of our 8 hour work from home workday, Spigot, Inc. employees have gotten creative (like always). As seen above some are literally making lemonade out of lemons, tons of fresh home-made meals, buying giant blow up slides, throwing it back and playing DDR, spending quality time with their animals, putting together 1000 piece puzzles, “self-isolating” out on the ocean on their boats and participating in work-out challenges.

It’s never a dull moment inside or outside the Spigot, Inc. office! Our employees are what makes coming to work everyday so much fun – and we are still enjoying working together on our Zoom calls (and happy hours)! If you think this is the type of work culture you are yearning for – Spigot, Inc. is STILL hiring! We have a bunch of open positions on our Linkedin and Website – feel free to apply OR send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review! Check out all of our adventures on the Spigot Inc blog.

Bored at Home? Here is what Spigot, Inc. Employees are Doing With Their New “Co-workers” to Stay Busy During Quarantine!

It’s been just a little over two weeks since Spigot, Inc. closed their office and asked employees to work from home due to Covid-19. All public schools in Florida are closed, so many people are not only working from home, but their kids are home too! Thankfully we are located in sunny Fort Myers, FL, so we still have the option to go outside. Spigot, Inc. employees have definitely gotten creative this week. Some employees “Co-workers” are eating all their food, messing up their work spaces, talking WAY too loud and just acting crazy in general.  As seen above, some employees new “coworkers” are creating things and some are destroying them (haha!). A handful of our new “co-workers” are learning to bake and make pizzas. Some have also taken the opportunity to spend extra time outdoors (which we recommend), by the pool, riding bikes, rollerblading and spending time “social distancing” on their boats. Building giant box forts, e-learning at home and playing school are also high on the list!

During this crazy time, Spigot, Inc. employees are super fortunate to still have the opportunity to work and stay at home with their kids AND stay connected with one another daily via Slack, Zoom & social media. Looking for a new position? We’re still actively hiring!  Send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review! Check out all of our adventures on the Spigot Inc blog.
