A Culture of Collaboration

A Culture of Collaboration

A message from Director of Technology Khaldoun Zine El Abidien

Collaboration is a common thread at Privacy Analytics, running through all aspects of our culture and work. You feel it in our radically transparent quarterly town hall meetings, our grassroots-driven social activities, and our famous daily graffiti whiteboard. And you live it when we’re tackling a months-long, all-hands-on-deck project, the kind that only works if we all come together.

There was one such project, a little while back, that really stands out as being almost emblematic of the type of collaboration we practice. It was a novel use case for us and our first client in a new business space. As such, it came with two major levels of unknowns, including how to scale a technology we had previously developed for another purpose.

To start, it was a tough pursuit. But thanks to full executive support and cross-departmental contribution, we were able to win it, nonetheless. We committed, with the client and as a company, to finding a way forward together.

“In the end, the project involved basically everyone in the company, at one point or another, from the engineers to the service department, the executive team to the sales group.”

We went beyond simply responding to the requirements of the proposal and ended up advising the client on their strategy in novel ways. This led to us becoming effectual partners to the overall success of the strategy, and not just our portion of the work.

Privacy is such a cross-functional field, with so many different forces and stakeholders at play, that it really does take everyone’s best efforts to consider all the angles. Technology, social responsibility, public policy, reputation management, and the drive for innovation are all involved. Simply put, collaboration is essential to success with data privacy, and that’s why it’s so important here at Privacy Analytics.
