Peergrade

Who we are

Close communication between staff members is essential to the culture we are trying to build at Peergrade. That’s why we run ‘daily standups’, where people talk for one minute about what they are doing. We do it within our small teams focusing on marketing, sales, and tech development. But once a day we also have a short conversation across teams, so everyone gives their take on a challenge we share.

 

The gain is that we are pretty synchronized with each other.

 

We are an informal bunch – a good day often ends with someone getting pizza – but at the same time we are serious about wanting to make society a bit better.

 

It drives us forward that feedback has been cut down to a minimum in the Danish educational system. This needs a fix, because it is such an important part of the learning process.

You contribute to solving a problem you can relate to. All of us have tried to hand in an assignment to a teacher and receive next to no response.

Q&A with Product Designer Simon Lind and CTO Malthe Jørgensen

@ Peergrade

Where is Peergrade headed in the near future?
Malthe: We are doing a revamp of the product, so it becomes even more intuitive to use for educators. Aside from streamlining the interface, we are adding some playful elements to it. Getting the tone of the universe right is a big priority. In terms of market, we are in the middle of a Nordic push. UK is next up.

 

What is your best advice for new entrepreneurs?
Simon: Don’t spend too much time going to events and talking about your product, before you actually have a product. It does not make sense to try to sell a half-done house, if you want to build a beautiful mansion.

 

Why can’t you wait to get to work in the morning?
Simon: Because you contribute to solving a problem you can relate to. All of us have tried to hand in an assignment to a teacher and receive next to no response.
