Company values

🌈  Don’t just deliver; Delight!
We exist for and because of our customers and seek out daily opportunities to delight them. Going above and beyond is our default.
🚪 Open doors
Approachability—among our team, for our customers, and throughout the product—empowers everyone and is an unstoppable competitive advantage.
👂 Seek first to understand
Pride is concerned with who is right, humility is concerned with what is right. The combination of high competency and low ego leads to remarkable outcomes.
😣 😊 Struggle together, win together
We fail fast and learn quickly, and always as a team. We are all owners equally responsible for the success of one another, our customers, our product, and our business.
🥳  Always be celebrating
Behind every great achievement is a collection of individual contributions worthy of recognition. We value these contributions, and the individuals behind each, as much as the result.

Our story

LaunchNotes' founding team has collectively spent over 20 years in the software industry. In this time, we've worked on almost every side of the product development lifecycle: Engineering, Support, Marketing, Growth, and Sales.

Through these various lenses, we've seen firsthand that building a successful product, and furthermore a successful business, takes far more than just fast delivery times and increased uptime. More code into the hands of customers is a fantastic outcome, but not at the cost of a subpar customer experience.

We built LaunchNotes to enable entire organizations to move at the same speed as their dev teams, no matter how fast those teams may be shipping software. Imagine the elevated user experience when organizations have one system of record for each and every product change. A single tool that ensures technical and non-technical teams are always aligned, even in a world in which software teams are shipping multiple times a day. One solution that provides customer-facing teams with everything they need to thrive in their roles and regularly delight customers.

LaunchNotes helps organizations do exactly this. It provides the right updates to the right people at the right time so that no one, internally or externally, is ever surprised by product changes. It's a single place where everyone can go to get the necessary information and context they need on product changes: past, present, and future.
