Category: Culture

Every day, we work together to create something bigger than ourselves. We work to change lives. We work to give hope. And we don’t just pay lip service to these ideals—our values are the DNA of our culture.

And what a culture it is! Our team members are provided the opportunity to attend Financial Peace University from the very first day. Our leadership takes pride in kicking everyone out of the office by 5:30 so we spend our evenings with family instead of hunkered down at our desks, and Dave provides a free catered lunch once a month. Team members enjoy a no-gossip policy, loads of free products, legendary Christmas parties … the list goes on and on. We work hard, but we also play hard.

But hey, don’t just take our word for it! Dave’s company has been recognized by the Nashville Business Journal as one of the BEST places to work in Nashville six times in a row! Our leadership truly believes that when you treat team members with excellence, you get excellent results.

We’re a Team Because It Matters

We’re a Team Because It Matters

Having a shared goal—a mission—has an incredibly positive impact on the quality of any team. I see this every day as I interact with developers on our team. If I were a developer, that wouldn’t come as a great surprise. At many companies, though, someone who is a Quality Assurance Analyst like me would be […] 

Quality Assurance and Tech Support: A Match Made in Heaven

Quality Assurance and Tech Support: A Match Made in Heaven

Last time, I wrote about how user experience and quality assurance are BFFs. And that’s completely, 100%, without-a-doubt true. But there’s another team relationship that is mutually beneficial: tech support and quality assurance. Odds are, you’ve had a bad experience with technology. Maybe you’ve tried to order airline tickets online and run into issues. Maybe […]

This One Simple Thing Will Make You a Better Developer

This One Simple Thing Will Make You a Better Developer

In Entreleadership, Dave introduces a document called a Key Results Area (KRA). A simple definition of a KRA is an outcome-oriented job description. Lately, I’ve been reflecting on this particular line: “Pull ‘no’ and all of its synonyms from your list of first responses. Explore solutions. Prioritize. Contribute ideas.” It’s very tempting to start saying […] 

CRM: Is It B2B? B2C? Or H2H?

CRM: Is It B2B? B2C? Or H2H?

CRM implementation. The mere mention of the phrase strikes anxiety in the hearts and quickens the pulse of even the most veteran implementation teams. And it’s what we at Develop With Purpose find staring us down like a tiger in the jungle. As a company we have long since outgrown our current contact management system, […] 

A Life Lesson from 24′s Jack Bauer

A Life Lesson from 24′s Jack Bauer

Recently, my wife and I discovered the TV show “24.” Yes . . . I know we are more than 12 years behind and just now discovering a new meaning of awesome. But when you disconnect cable and rely on the Internet for your commercial-free, show-watching pleasure, well . . . there are just some […] 

iPhone Fairy

iPhone Fairy

More than a month ago, I was rushing home so my husband could leave to go to work. I parked, jumped out of the car with about 20 items in my hand, and dropped my iPhone face down on the concrete. I hesitated to pick it up afraid of what I might find. When I […]
