Do the best work of your life at Stedi - from anywhere.
We’re rebuilding the technological backbone of the B2B economy.
Trillions of dollars flow annually through a global network of commerce via an archaic framework called EDI, but there hasn't been a major new EDI platform in over a decade. Developers at businesses of every size use our software to exchange transactions like purchase orders, invoices, and more with their trading partners around the world.
Stedi’s goal is to process every B2B transaction on the planet; we drive towards this goal by delivering the highest quality, broadest-reaching commercial trading network at the lowest possible price to our customers. A prerequisite is maintaining minimum operating costs without endangering the company’s future development. This requires a relentless drive towards simplicity and an uncompromising thoroughness in identifying and implementing daily improvements.
The Stedi Standards
Create and execute your own work
Find the highest impact work that needs to get done for the company, and do it. Pull on a valuable thread and see through to completion. Odds are you will uncover other threads as you work. If you don’t know where to start, ask someone – people here tend to be helpful and collaborative.
Do one thing the way you’d do everything
The details are not just the details – the details make the difference. How you are doing one thing is indicative of how you are doing everything else; make it high-quality and simple, and then relentlessly raise the bar.
Eliminate toil wherever you find it
Prioritize eliminating menial work and spend your time on high-value deliverables. Waste is our existential risk; it leads to uncompetitiveness, frustration, disengagement, and joylessness. Live by a process of continuous improvement where waste is eliminated any time and place it's found. If it hurts, do it more often – and then solve the underlying problem.
Apply the minimum effective dose
Be a master of implementing what is common sense, reasonable, and minimally necessary - without choosing a shortcut simply because it’s easier. Practice fanatical simplicity and a focus on fundamentals – these lead to extremely high quality and extremely low costs that are impossible to match.
Write decisions down
When you make decisions and have arrived at a solution, document it and share it so that others don’t revisit ideas unnecessarily. There is discipline in writing. The writing process clarifies the problems we are solving, solutions, decisions, and iterations.
Mastery of self
Be negative maintenance
The opposite of high maintenance isn’t low maintenance – it’s negative maintenance: being poised under pressure, self-motivating, self-improving, self-disciplined, self-aware, and non-defensive.
Give and receive great feedback
Feedback helps us get better. And it has a short half-life, so it should be shared on the spot or soon thereafter. Feedback should be direct, actionable, and flow in all directions. Giving constructive feedback takes practice and we don’t expect everyone to come in with this skill honed – but you have to be willing to ramp this up quickly. On the receiving side, we expect everyone to handle this gracefully on day one.
Dive deep and become a master of your craft. Cultivate a relentless thirst for learning through reading, listening, watching, sharing, and teaching – from sources new and old – with interminable curiosity and patience.
