Who We Are
We’re excited about new ways of thinking about work, feedback, and performance management – and we want to tell the world about it. (Actually, we want to be a bit more targeted than that, but you get the idea.) We believe using continuous feedback can help companies improve their employee experience, and we use everything from blog posts to customer stories to get the word out. To support our users, we also create a ton of educational content about giving feedback and how to get the most out of the tool.
Linda is a global nomad on a mission to help create better work environments. She has been passionately spreading the Small Improvements love since the early beginnings in 2011. You’ll often find her at conferences, promoting lean performance management or sharing stories on- and offline. Ask Linda about her collection of toilet sign pictures and beer labels 🙂
Sarah joined Small Improvements after managing marketing teams at Castlight Health and Zipcar.

She’s a mother of two and enjoys biking through Berlin on a quest to find the city’s best playgrounds.

How we work
Our favorite company value is “We’re a band, not rockstars.” We believe that we get more done – and do it better – as a team. Being efficient and working well together is important to us. That’s why we invest time in getting to know each other’s working styles, setting quarterly team goals to help us prioritize tasks, and meeting weekly to select new projects as a team. Each project has a designated owner and we always make sure to give each other actionable and timely feedback.
We might be a team of lean, mean, content-creating machines – but we are also masters of having a good time. Our room is never short of laughter and snacks, because enjoying what we do is the key to our success.
Our tech stack: HubSpot, WordPress, Google Analytics, MOZ, Buffer, Intercom, G Suite, Trello
