The coolest thing happening at Elevada right now is the feedback we're getting from customers: a word cloud would include terms like "love" and "terrific" and "cake." (Long story.) In many of our demos we give subject matter experts visibility into data that they've never had before. We're solving problems some customers have had for decades, and we're passionate about building software that oozes equal parts capability and delight. Our work environment is laid-back, but focused, with a priority on only enough structure to help us be as productive as possible.
Elevada is a Data Automation company, and a big part of what we do is the communication of very complicated information and operations to our users, technical and not-so-technical alike. This means that all aspects of our interaction with the marketplace, from general marketing material to our products themselves, require a consistent, well-considered visual language that communicates data-operation concepts and--in a perfect world--colors those concepts with desirability and warmth.
This is definitely a challenge, but also a terrific opportunity to break new ground with an up and coming companny.
