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!

Spigot, Inc. Virtual Trivia Happy Hour = Big Success

Update: Week 6 on lock down – Spigot, Inc. is still working from home! If you follow our blog, you know that we frequently have parties, hang out with one another outside of the office, travel together and participate in team building events. We’ve decided to keep that going, but virtually! So last week – Spigot, Inc. put together a Spigot, Inc. Virtual Happy Hour for all employees to attend! We had a total of around 30 employees and 5 teams participate in the event. It was hosted through Zoom by Trivia Mafia – and was a BLAST! Not only was it fun to see one another in a group setting again, we got to compete – and there were even prizes at stake!

Trivia Mafia did a great job organizing the game. They helped us set up teams by using a Zoom registration. Once the teams were set up, we were all sent a Google forms document to fill in our answers. The host of the show read all 5 questions for the round, and then sent us off into Zoom “break-out” rooms to discuss our answers. We were given 5 minutes to submit our answers and then the host pulled us all back into the same room to let us trash talk (lol) – and read us the next set of questions.

The game was VERY close, and the questions were challenging – but fun! We will definitely be doing this again, and participating in their private online hosted events!

Spigot, Inc. really loves investing in their people – and creating a team and “fun” environment is one way we accomplish that. As we are in quarantine, we are continually looking for ways to promote comradery. This definitely won’t be our last “virtual” team event! Stay tuned to see what other fun things we’re up to!

Spigot, Inc. Promotes Team Building – Even in Quarantine!

Prior to “social distancing” and “stay at home” orders – Spigot, Inc. had a lot of team building events! Most recently, we went to Dave n Busters as an entire company, we frequently spend a lot of time at WOB in Gulf Coast and have parties in our office. The Spigot, Inc. office has been closed now for 29 days, so what are we doing to stay connected?! Zoom Happy Hours & Games (obviously). Individual teams have been planning happy hours every week, just to catch up – talk quarantine, and just hang out. Friday, all of Spigot, Inc.’s employees got an invite to hop on a call at 2pm and a handful of people showed up! This coming Friday, Triva Mafia is hosting a Zoom Trivia contest for Spigot, Inc., and Spigot is providing prizes!

Last week, Spigot, Inc.’s sister company, Eightpoint Technologies, hosted a “Rock n Roll Bingo” Happy hour – and even had lunches delivered to everyone’s homes from a local Cayman Restaurant, Al la Kebab.

It’s really great to be a part of a “family” of companies that value employee happiness and promote collaboration no matter what. Not only do we offer a ton of fun outside of the workday, we also offer amazing benefits (100$ Medical, Dental & Vision Insurance paid, 401k Match, Unlimited Vacation Days & FREE LUNCH & Snacks).

This Just In: Apple to Produce Faces Shields & Donate Masks!

Apple CEO, Tim Cook, announced on Twitter today that “Apple will design, produce and distribute more than 1 million face shields a week.” According to an article on Linkedin, “The protective gear will first be distributed to medical workers in the U.S. with a goal to expand distribution overseas. The tech giant has also sourced 20 million face masks to donate globally in a bid to slow the spread of coronavirus.” “We’re working continuously and closely with governments at all levels to ensure these are donated to places of greatest need,” said Cook. He also stated “Our design, engineering, operations and packaging teams are also working with suppliers to design, produce and ship face shields for medical workers.”According to CNN, “The first shipment arrived to hospitals in Silicon Valley and will be shipped to other hospitals in the United States.”

Since we are most definitely in a shortage of supplies, it’s good to know that the owners of the products we use (and rely on) everyday are trying to give back to the community and slow the spread of the virus. The sooner we all work together, and accept that this is our new way of living for the time-being – the faster this will be over.

Spigot, Inc. is doing everything they can to keep employees at a healthy distance and keep the organization running. We are extremely fortunate to be in the position we are and will continue on this path. Spigot, Inc. is also STILL hiring – our employees are working from home and we are setting up new employees with work stations to do the same.

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!

Spigot, Inc. Wishes Megan Well!

Spigot, Inc. has an extremely unique culture in many different aspects – it’s part of our success and the main reason for our employee happiness and low turn-over. Hard work, dedication and risk taking really go along way here. One of our employees, Megan Wells is starting a new chapter of her life – and we all got to wish her well today! It is definitely a really cool story and a great example of the culture and mindset here at Spigot, Inc. so we thought we’d share!

Megan’s career at Spigot started when she was brought on as our admin to help with the day to day shenanigans. She graduated early from FGCU with an economics degree and had a desire to help out on the finance team. Megan took the initiative and sought a role on the finance team. Initially she lent a helping hand on some projects that the finance team had been working on and quickly proved her exemplary attention to detail and drive to learn (all while maintaining her other full time admin position).  In just 2 months Megan created a role for herself that didn’t even exist yet! In a very short time, she gained enough experience in the financial analyst realm to follow her dream of living in California and seek opportunities there. Her drive, passion, and fearless risk taking allotted her the opportunity to not only move to the team in which she desired, but help take her career to the next level.

We will miss Megan very much, but no matter what we know she is going to do great things!

If you want to be a part of a culture that really values their employees, has a ton of room for upward mobility and is just overall fun – Spigot, Inc. would love to talk to you!
