Remind’s most important values were the ones that were painful to maintain. We realized that the controversy around ‘teacher-obsession’ was what actually advanced the company towards its vision. Our role was to ensure these debates were happening all the time and at every level. As a result, we influenced everything from who we hired and promoted, to how we launched products, to how we approached revenue, to how we communicated big company changes.
