How We Got Our Team to Care About Data

Posted by Mindy Rose on November 16, 2017

When I first started my career in analytics, Data Analyst was declared the “Sexiest Job of the 21st Century.”  Buzz around “big data” was on the rise as the most successful companies were increasing their investments in data and striving to foster data-driven cultures. This led to a high demand for data analysts and scientists who were needed to sift through that data in search of value. However, due to the lack of widespread data accessibility and transparency within companies, too often analyst work becomes frustrating and monotonous, consisting of one-off requests for stakeholders, data-validation, running similar queries over and over, and having co-workers compete for resources and prioritization. These inefficiencies keep companies from getting the most out of their analysts and make achieving the benefits of a data-driven culture more difficult.

Growing Your Company Community: From Pregnancy to Policy

Posted by Kim Rohrer on August 03, 2016

As Disqus has grown over the years, our company has changed. From the way we talk about our core values to the way we plan projects to the operational policies we create, we’re just not the same company at 50 employees that we were at 15! For the last six years, I’ve worked to create company policies that feel intuitive to the way we operate - natural (but official) extensions of the things we believe and the way we want to behave. After all, building a great community means investing in that community, and company policies are just a set of (sometimes legally-required) community guidelines!

Disqus Partners with Local Startups to Give Back

Posted by James Mayagoitia on August 26, 2015

This past Friday, a few employees from Disqus and I volunteered our time to pack food boxes at the SF Marin Food Bank.
