One Mighty Roar makes products to organize shared experiences across physical and digital spaces.
Over the past four years, Zach has helped clients ranging from world class brands to Fortune 500 titans expand how they think about digital.
Along the way, his team built the world’s largest online game of “Would You Rather” which doubles as a formidable polling engine.
Zach’s current focus is Robin, an Internet of Things platform that connects people with the devices they use by helping people “sign in” to physical spaces.
If I spent five minutes alone with a random person in your company, would I get the right impression?
Earlier this week I spoke on a panel about company culture. Culture is a whale of a topic, but this panel’s common thread was how to grow something that works. Once you hit your stride, how do you actually explain it to others? More importantly, how do you know when the culture works?
Good culture shows up in results instead of manifestos. At One Mighty Roar we use a five minute culture …
You got hired because you have a passion for brands and were able to talk intelligently to the client about Snapchat. You always thought you’d be doing something that had an impact on consumers. Clearly, writing Facebook posts for a cheese client wasn’t what you had in mind when you envisioned your career at a marketing agency.
So you’ve realized it’s time to do something else. The good news is, your skills are not at all limited to agency life. In fact, they are very …
One of the common startup myths is that single 20-somethings are the most successful entrepreneurs and that they are the demographic that starts the most companies. Zach and Sam may have started One Mighty Roar before they were even legal to go into a bar, but research from the Kauffman Foundation states that the average founder is actually 40 years old. The same report shows that nearly 70% of entrepreneurs are married and 60% had at least one child. So much for the stereotype.
Tons of …
This morning I found a device that would turn my bed into a giant scale.
It’s a high point for hardware. The rise of crowdfunding and the maker’s movement have helped awesome ideas turn into products you can actually own. We live in the future. Everything is wonderful and nothing is wrong.
Unless you count the islands. Those are a problem.
What are islands? Turns out when great hardware launches constantly, the connected device space becomes an overloaded tech …
Hey developers and fellow strategists, we need to talk.
I’ve noticed that we think differently about our relationship in the builder community. You get excited over hardware, lines of code and open APIs while I seek to influence consumer behavior with technology. I feel like this divide may push us away.
Let’s fix this.
I’ve realized my role in the builder community is to be your biggest fan. I may never need to code in my life but understanding you as a …
“You have clients? So you’re an agency?”
For the first two years of One Mighty Roar, the question of “What do you call yourself?” came up a lot. Externally, people saw as a company with a growing portfolio of brand clients and a trail of websites and social campaigns behind it. Internally, our team saw a growing stockpile of self-made code and tools which tied those projects together. Whatever OMR was didn’t feel exactly like an agency, but it was close …
We believe to be a good citizen of the developer and open source community is to hire good engineers for One Mighty Roar. This means engineers that can build utility apps like Lantern, connected device platforms like Robin, and hardware projects like Tableduino.
When we started, we made the decision to only hire engineers who were fully capable of interacting well with fellow engineers, but can also confidently talk to clients and present at events. Here’s how …
