Software teams don’t need to choose between providing a great workplace or pushing hard to build great products; they can do both. At nCino we call that balance “hustling in comfort.” Founded in 2012, nCino has already been named an Inc. 500 company, one of Forbes’ Most Promising Companies of 2016, and the 2016 Best Employer in North Carolina. In this talk we’ll introduce the four core values that underpin our software teams and demonstrate how these values encourage teams to build products that disrupt and lead markets. We’ll share insights from psychology and sociology that will help you create a work environment where innovation can flourish. And we’ll provide practical advice to managers and developers on building teams that “hustle in comfort.
