OliveFamily-Three Traits Every Member of the #OliveFamily Has

1.     Empathy

As we discussed before, empathy is at the foundation of everything we do. It is an essential trait we look for in people who want to join the Olive Family. We are designing products to help make other people’s lives better, and to be able to do that we must be able to put ourselves in the shoes of others. We are a very design-focused company (it was started out of a college industrial design project after all), and empathy is at the core of good design.

2.    Passion

Here at Olive Devices we are very passionate about what we do. The passion that drives us all stems from that empathy I mentioned before. Working for a startup like Olive Devices can occasionally be crazy. That passion and drive to help others is what allows us to keep up with that craziness (plus a lot of caffeine). To keep up with the rest of the hardworking Olive Family you really do have to love every crazy day and the new and varied challenges that they bring.

3.    Flexibility

Every day brings a new and exciting challenge here at Olive Devices. With such a small, close-knit team at Olive Devices the phrase “that’s not my job” definitely does not exist in our vocabulary. You never know what you might be called on to work on, and that is part of what makes it so exciting. Startups are very nimble and what you are working on can change quickly. We also have family members working all across the globe, collaborating online. This too requires some flexibility. This might drive some people crazy, but it is part of the fun of working at a startup.
