How We Use HelloSign at HelloSign


One of the most fulfilling parts about working at HelloSign is that each and every day we get to build something that helps people accomplish great things. We’re dedicated to making our users awesome and we love seeing people sign possibilities into realities. But something you may not know about the HelloSign team is that we also happen to be avid users of our own product.

To celebrate National eSign Day – the historic day that made eSignatures legal in the US – we thought it’d be fun to share how HelloSign employees are using HelloSign out in the wild.

How We Leveled Up HelloSign in 2015

2015 Year Review

2015 was a huge year for us. At the beginning of the year, we made a decision that it was time to step on the gas – and we did. We doubled the team, seriously leveled up the product, built new functions around taking better care of our customers, and much, much more.


Optimizing Team Communications, The HelloSign Way



Hipchat/Slack messages.

Verbal announcements.

These are just a few of many ways in which we communicate these days. It’s easy to get lost in a flood of messages and ignore the ones that matter.

At HelloSign, we noticed that this was increasingly becoming a communication pain point. A lot of important information that we wanted to surface internally was not being relayed effectively simply because of the sheer volume.

Communication is an integral part of any well-oiled machine. As our team grows, we’re constantly evaluating tools to make communication a bit easier, which almost always results in increased productivity.

It was clear we needed a centralized system to access announcements, celebrate accomplishments, and keep current with metrics. To set up a more permanent internal communication system, the Creative team – in collaboration with Team Ops – started working on a little project called “The Daily Scroll”.


3 Challenges You’ll Face When Scaling Your Startup Team

3 Challenges You WILL Face As You Scale Your Startup-05

We’re facing a small challenge at the HelloSign office. Need a hint? It’s bigger than a breadbox and smaller than a gymnasium.

I’m talking about our office space.

Over the last few months, we’ve added to our team at a rapid pace. At the beginning of 2014, we were a lean team of under 15 employees. Since then, we’ve more than doubled the number and moved our office location to fit all the new faces.

Growing the team is just one way we’re leveling up as a company. That said, the team scale has also led us to face some common challenges that result from adding more brains to an operation.

And because we know firsthand how tricky it can be to maintain balance and momentum when adding to a team, we wanted to share some of the “lessons learned” during our own team scale.


May 22: Honoring Harvey Milk


In November of 1977, Harvey Milk was elected to serve on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Milk was the first non-incumbent openly gay member to sit on San Francisco’s council. He was also one of the first openly gay politicians elected to serve in public office in the US.
