Identity Management Blog

Two Identropians that've had a profound impact on our company culture have recently moved on to the next chapters of their careers - Frank Villavicencio and Ranjeet Vidwans. Building a company culture is like building a nation, it requires great leaders. Maintaining a company's culture is like maintaining a nation, it requires the next generation of leaders to step up. Think of Frank like Abraham Lincoln. Honest Abe led America out of the ugliness of slavery and held our nation together through a period of civil war. Lincoln changed the way we viewed ourselves as a society and culture - Frank ...

It’s been almost two years since we here at Identropy defined our Company Culture. We’ve grown a lot since then, added new faces to the team, launched a new product, but all the while staying true to the core values that we committed to.
Wow, time flies when you are having fun, no doubt. It is hard to believe that just a year ago we published our 2012 Identropy Culture Book. It feels like yesterday...
Nearly two years ago, I wrote a blog post that signaled the start of an important track in the evolution of Identropy. Back then, we had stumbled on this concept of company culture and were starting to grapple with its meaning, looking to build a strong company culture that would allow us to grow and face the challenges ahead.
As regular readers of this blog already know, we greatly and unapologetically value the importance of culture here at Identropy. We believe that culture, cultivated seriously, can be the most phenomenal growth engine within a company.

At Identropy, Customer Service is one of our Core Values, and like all our Core Values we try to live it in our day-to-day actions.  We believe that each interaction we have with our prospects and customers is an opportunity to showcase how seriously we take it.  And on the flip side, when we deal with one of our providers, we judge them during each exchange on the level of customer service they ...
For those of you that follow our little enterprise here, you know that we put a tremendous amount of focus on culture.   I’ve recently been part of several discussions where I heard that people liked our culture because we like to socialize together or sneak out for an early round of golf if our schedules permit.

This past July the entire company got together in Austin, TX for our all-hands meeting.  We followed the same format used in the past - a short company update, inclusive of a vision and strategy session, followed by the main course, Fedex Day (our version of Atlassian’s ShipIt Day since 2010).   This time we had 15 teams, and it was truly a blast.
Company culture is extremely important to us at Identropy, as we have written about in the past. It's what makes us who we are, and a big reason why many of us have come together here. It's also been cited by customers as a reason for selecting us, and by the VCs who have invested in us.
Last week, we kicked off our Q4 2011 here at Identropy, and it is exciting to see how much the company has grown in 2011.
