Thriving in the tech industry despite the cut-throat competition takes certain qualities. While most companies in the software services industry maintain an air of confidentiality about their work ethic, team, and functions, Hounder adopts a different approach.
With their excellent client relationships and top-tier projects, the company also brings new meaning to sharing exclusive, transparent behind-the-scenes footage with its viewers. Its monthly YouTube webisodes, led by CTO and co-founder Joshua Northcott, are fun and informative to watch.
Created in 2016, Hounder has achieved a lot owing to a tight-knit team of experienced individuals and a centralized approach to quality projects. The team has worked with significant names in the industry, like Adobe, Esri, Shopify, and more, making a name for the company in a short period.
Considering their progress and experience, the company started sharing monthly webisodes aptly titled Off-Leash! to connect with their clients and show aspiring individuals how things are run at a leading product design and development agency.
The videos are short, enjoyable, and insightful, as we get to see the company’s inner workings. With a compilation of unfiltered clips spanning the events of a month, Joshua leads the viewer through whatever progress the company has made. He introduces new team members, shares recent events or company milestones, new products being launched, and more. The energetic background music combined with fun banter among teammates also showcases the bond between the crew.
In short, the videos project the entertaining and transparent side of the team’s professional lives. The team members also share easy tips to tackle seemingly unsolvable issues – for instance, in a recent episode of Off-Leash!, Austin Amento of the web development department shares how ChatGPT can help resolve coding issues in just a few clicks, empowering development teams worldwide to improve their processes and expertise.
This episode also celebrated a major milestone of the company – Joshua proudly shared that Adobe Summit in Las Vegas recognized the company due to the excellent results delivered. He also shared a few of Hounder’s future goals, whereby the team is bringing AI-powered software based on the model they have employed for large-scale enterprises. The company is also heading to DrupalCon in Pittsburgh this June.
Giving an authentic peek into the work ethic of the team, Hounder is clearly making waves in the industry. In fact, many clients have reached out after watching these webisodes, impressed by the company’s work ethic and culture. Joshua notes, “Some organizations have also found out about us through our monthly Webisodes. These Webisodes are a monthly behind the scenes look at us working on projects and having fun. What software and creative company have you seen be that transparent?”
The raw depiction of expert minds gathering for client’s projects truly makes one realize the magnitude of hard work and dedication that Hounder puts in. Considering this dynamic team, we will surely see more achievements and significant projects shared in these webisodes in the future.
