3 Personal Goals for 2016 as the CEO of a Remote Company

0
CEO RULEZ

We all know that working remotely is great, so I don’t think I’ll have to keep convincing you about that.

Is it a viable option for every organization? Probably not, but it has been working well for us so far, and we’re happy to share our experience with it and continue the conversation around it.

As we’ve already discussed, there are PROs and CONs to working remotely, but I strongly believe that the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. Instead, I’d like to focus this post on what I personally find challenging as the co-founder/CEO of a remote company, and how I plan to deal with those challenges.

Let’s start with the hardest thing to do, at least for me.

What’s going on with our iOS apps

edited

In the past few weeks we’ve been pushing out some new releases to our iOS Apps; some of you have reached out because they couldn’t find the statistics screen on the Spreaker Podcast Radio app anymore.

As of now, listener analytics are only displayed on Spreaker Studio and this means that if you are a content producer you should have already downloaded the Spreaker Studio App for iOS in order to access your stats. In a few months (we can’t reveal the date just yet) we’ll be launching a complete renewal of Spreaker Podcast Radio App for iOS which will give users a much better podcast listening experience, like we already did on Android.

Spreaker Spring Retreat 2016

1
team

We’re back to our homes and desks after an exhilarating four days spent together in a small village close to Bologna, Italy.

This has been the first retreat of 2016 (our last one was this past December in Barcelona), and it’s become another testament to my personal feeling that the more we get to stay and play together, the more the team grows!

We had some really cool moments together, like personally welcoming aboard new team members we’ve been speaking with on Slack for months (which, you know, is weird! but is also one of the more mysterious sides of the remote working). We shared a gorgeous home out in the hills of Italy, cooking, sleeping, working, and just chilling out. It was also the first time Rob had ever been to Italy (he’s still surprised about how Italians cook pasta).

As it happens during professional events, we had a detailed schedule. Here are the highlights from these truly awesome days together:

Access Your Stats on iOS from the Spreaker Studio App

new-1

Yesterday we released a new update for Spreaker Podcast Radio for iOS that caused issues for a few users due to the fact that from now on, stats will only be displayed on Spreaker Studio.

What does this mean?

Actually, nothing has changed apart from the new path you’ll need to take in order to get to your data. You’ll still get complete access to all of your stats, of course, but now you’ll just have to open Spreaker Studio on your iOS device to get to it, instead of Spreaker Podcast Radio.
