New Vlog this morning! It was a real treat to sit down with Parker.
Today we're going to hang out with Parker Conrad. He created Rippling. He's one of the best product-focused CEO's I've ever met. Today he's going to share some of the most hard-won startup lessons that I've ever heard. And he hasn't talked about it anywhere else.
Let's go check it out. This is part one.
Garry: Thank you so much for hanging out.
Parker: Yeah, no, thanks for coming by.
Garry: So Parker, what is Rippling?
Parker: If you're a founder or CEO, one of the things you probably noticed at your company is that there's a lot of just irreducible admin work involved in running a business. Could be getting hired, it could be getting a raise, a promotion, getting married, having a kid, moving to a new address, eventually leaving the company, and each of those life cycle events for an employee create, have this set of implications across all or some subset of your different business systems that today, you need to handle manually and by hand, but with Rippling, we automate that end-to-end.
So, we get people added to all the right email lists, the right Slack channels, we get them a computer, all the right softwares installed, they're enrolled in the right insurance benefits, get 'em paid correctly.
