It started with each employee getting a Lego version of themselves, and a representation of their team and tenure at Flybits. Playing with Lego boosts creativity, and it’s an outlet for employees to express and develop their creative skills. We love it so much we even dedicated a creative room to it.
Somebody had to clear up all those misconceptions about the dinosaurs. For example, did you know that chickens are the closest living relatives of the tyrannosaurus rex? Oh, how the mighty have fallen…
It’s actually pretty straightforward. Flybits is “flying bits”. Every piece of data in the world boils down to 1’s and 0’s. In programming speak, these are called bits, and they are literally ‘flying’ everywhere. In a world where data is increasing exponentially and consumption habits are changing, information has to find you as opposed to you looking for it, kind of like a reverse google search. Our platform captures these flying bits and brings relevance to an individual.
- One of our engineers forgot to hit mute and decided to belt out Lizzo’s “Juice” during a virtual standup. Hey, it’s a catchy song.
- Seeing a deer walk up to my window, and me instantly going wide-eyed and instinctively mumbling “holy $%#” in front of five colleagues
- Our CEO’s dad jumping on a zoom webinar one minute before we were about to go live to 400 people (his dad had accidentally logged into our CEO’s account)
- Talking to my kid in a baby voice in front of 12 salespeople when I thought I was on mute. #lifehappens
- My son walking into the room crying the word “cartooooooon…” (He would not ask to watch cartoons but would only cry for them only when I was on a work call).
By day, Gerti Dervishi grows our business. By night, he is a man of the people. Few know this, but Gerti ran for political office in Eglinton-Lawrence as a political candidate. Even though he didn’t win, he’s still fighting the good fight.
‘Interesting’ would be an understatement. We had to move fast and turn Flybits into a fully remote company overnight. Everyone’s experience has been different. Understanding our team’s needs and supporting them through all this uncertainty has not been easy but we are able to adapt and act quickly. We’re still learning and continuing to evolve as we transition into a new hybrid, work culture.
