An Insider's view of Localytics

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

There's a good amount of cross-team collaboration I do in any given week since my work tends to touch different departments (everyone needs help docs!). We use Slack mostly, so I can ping anyone I need to chat with—a Product Manager, a department head, a BDR. We're a pretty flat organization and everyone is accessible which is super important.
