Do the best work of your life at Stedi - from anywhere.
We’re rebuilding the technological backbone of the physical product 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 only 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.
Design for operational efficiency at any scale
Stedi’s systems should scale ad infinitum with minimal toil. The goal is zero touch operations with no knobs to turn or buttons to press.
Build systems with components that self-improve over time
Managed services should be used wherever possible in order to avoid diverting attention from building differentiated functionality. The goal is no proprietary systems other than business logic and core IP.
Bias towards usage-based costs that are trackable at the customer level
Costs should scale up and down according to customer usage, and should be able to be allocated to a customer wherever possible. The goal is zero costs incurred when the business is at rest, and 100% of actual costs definitively and programmatically allocated to customers.
Take no extraordinary measures
System designs should be intuitive, simple, and easy to explain to someone familiar with the underlying technologies. Unusual contortions suggest improper usage or insufficient service decomposition. Off-label usage of managed services should be avoided. Simply put: “things shouldn’t be that hard.” The goal is for any engineer to quickly and easily understand the system given sufficient knowledge of off-the-shelf services.
Build only for current requirements
Aside from the current requirements (and our other tenets), no future criteria should be considered. YAGNI. The goal is no wasted effort on unused functionality.
Build extraordinary things
Raise the bar with every change and don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. The goal is high quality, defect-free, zero-touch solutions that delight customers, both internal and external.
