Miter is here to help teams work more effectively together.
Dave can’t resist collaboration tools: he’s held leadership roles on Gmail, Facebook Messenger, and Yahoo! Messenger and co-founded Emu, a smart messaging app acquired by Google. Most recently he served as VP Design at Heap. Dave holds a CS degree from Harvard and knows just enough React to be dangerous.
Worst meeting: A calibration meeting in which someone said, “Our expectation is that the majority of employees exceed expectations.”
Dr. Whillans is an assistant professor at the Harvard Business school and teaches the “Negotiations” and “Motivation and Incentives” courses there. Her research focuses on the role of non-cash rewards on engagement and the links between time, money, and happiness. She is the author ofTime Smart: How to Reclaim Your Time & Live a Happier Life.
Worst meeting: A recurring company-wide meeting where execs made everyone sit through two-hour presentations relevant to only five people. Curiously, these meetings often coincided with “business trips” and “illnesses.”
As a seasoned go-to-market leader, Damian has built a career around meeting with people. An alumnus of LinkedIn, he’s built multiple sales practices from zero at early-stage startups including GoodHire, CleverTap and Got It. Damian holds a Mathematics degree from Harvard and an MBA from MIT Sloan.
Worst meeting: The quarterly business review where execs gathered to see who the CEO would scream at, and bet on whether they'd be around next quarter.
Alex is software engineer and Chief Internship Officer at Heap. To the extent Dave and Damian can credibly call themselves software engineers now, it's Alex's fault. When he and Dave worked together at Heap, Dave made him go to meetings but he didn't seem to mind too much.
Invest in People
Our most important asset is our team, and our strategic success and resilience depend on its strength.
Strength in Diversity
A diverse, inclusive team makes us strong—if we not only hire for it but empower it. That’s supported by data, and it’s axiomatic for us—self-evident.
Act Like You Run the Place
Your first responsibility is to the company. Keep that in mind, then take your autonomy and run with it.
Be Excellent to Each Other
How we treat each other, and how we treat our customers, defines who we are and how we succeed.
Deliver Something Meaningful
We're here to deliver real value to customers—specifically, to improve how teams collaborate. When we make trade-offs, we do so through the lens of that quest.
