100M Users. Moving to Agile at Hike
Hike is a new kind of a messaging app that is changing the way people connect with one another and simplifying the way they interact with content and services on mobile. At 100 million users exchanging 40 billion messages/month (Jan’16), and growing each day, Hike is working at a scale that no other Indian internet company today is. The key to Hike’s hyper growth has been its ability to continuously re-organize itself and build a self-learning culture, something they continue to evolve and better everyday. Driving autonomy, alignment to Hike’s mission, imbibing the internal culture and values, were all fundamental to this continuous change.
