Among other details the interview explains how CakeHR was born from an in-house tool which we built for ourselves into a separate product.
Here’s an excerpt:
There was a point in mid 2011 when the team in the Riga office was expanding quite rapidly. I was in London and hadn’t even had a chance to get to know the surnames of some of my guys. Bad, I know…. Not to mention the paperwork mess, etc. This had to be sorted.
After a brief look around, I didn’t find anything suitable on the market so we set out to build our own internal app. Once it started taking a shape we made a decision to release it publicly using the SaaS model.
