RIVET, a Detroit-based SaaS company supporting the construction industry, has a collaborative culture that’s accelerated by its hybrid model – they work in the office 3 days a week, which allows the table to be able to quickly debrief, make decisions, and then make things happen. Devin on the Customer Success team says that Rivet has a culture where "everyone kinda has a hand in everything.” Cross-team collaboration happens in structured ways as well as “unofficial” ways: Integrations engineers helping backend engineers on database refinements, product managers and solutions architects covering integrations, VPs covering some of the pre-close scoping calls, and Implementations building operational dashboards for the Account Management team (just to name a few). “I think the impact this has is that the RIVET ship stays afloat and moving in one direction, even if that means the First Mate is pulling one of the oars,” says Devin.
