How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Perch is a hyper-connected company and cross-departmental collaboration is key to our success and culture. On any given day, I am working with investments, contracts, field ops and title to drive conversion. Since we have an office in NY and Austin, teams connect through break outs, zoom meetings, our internal platform and, most notably, Slack.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As an early-stage fast growing company, we're faced with daily challenges and tall goals. It's important to hold all team members accountable, provide a balance of autonomy and guidance, and create an environment where it's okay to fail. This supports creativity and encourages your team to be resourceful and solution-oriented.

Thomas Lalonde
