MaxMine Dev Team Retreat

What makes for a great Dev Team Retreat?  A great view and a customer in the room!

Product-market fit is so much easier with a site champion customer in the room!!!

Our development team has just finished from our annual Product Development Roadmap Retreat, taking a break in Middleton, South Australia. With a room with so much talent, it is a buzz… everyone presented their work and plans We worked through some tough problems, and were joined by experts from around the world to help inspire new ways of working, whilst everyone always had to look the customer in the eye when they said something is valuable.!

We were lucky enough to be joined by Jason Manser (a MaxMine site champion and all round legend from Byerwen) and Luke O’Regan our Director of Strategic Partnerships – Australia and Asia. Jason and Luke kept the team’s thinking focused on the customer, always bringing plans back to the impact that we can have on our clients! We worked through ideas, got feedback, killed things that won’t work and settled on better solutions fast with all the voices in one place.

With many of the team working a good portion of their time remotely, it was great to have everyone in the one place for time away from the keyboard. Cooking dinner together and eating together helps build that next level of connection that we have been missing over the past few years.

Everyone came back to the day to day with a renewed sense of excitement about where we are going as a team and a company.
