TaskUs: Ridiculously Good
Ever since its inception in 2009, TaskUs has strived to be a ridiculously good company. Founded by business-savvy millennials Bryce Maddock and Jaspar Weir, TaskUs grew its humble five-man team and multiplied it to a thousand.
TaskUs started as a company with one goal: to provide assistance to busy and always on-the-go individuals. The company held on to that one goal, and as years went by, wrapped it up and made it even bigger and better. Boldly, TaskUs moved on from helping out individuals and began seeking out startups and rapidly-growing businesses that set their sights on making a difference in the world.
Making a difference in the world is a mutualistic endeavor. How? With its one-of-a-kind approach to outsourcing through customer service, revenue generation, and content management solutions, TaskUs keeps these businesses focused on the big picture. In turn, keeping the clients free to concentrate on true innovation is TaskUs’ big picture.
TaskUs believes that the secret ingredient to achieving this is the people. Its employees. Teammates, as they’re called. Whisk in a handful of TaskUs’ eight core values to the pot and we’ve got ourselves a winning combination.
Teammates deliver and get the work done in the most efficient way possible. They do not just settle for good; excellence is always what’s strived for. But perfection does not happen overnight, and every day must be considered a journey to continuous self improvement, mentally, physically, and emotionally.
TaskUs’ teammates are encouraged to do more with less because sometimes the best solutions come from thinking outside of the box. No matter how eccentric the ideas are, ridiculousness is embraced. With this kind of thinking instilled in even one teammate, it can grow and sprout in other teammates. That’s how inspiring others work. The result? One whole unified team that makes the TaskUs dream work.
At the end of the day TaskUs’ teammates know how to have fun through events such as Happy Hour and rewards that come in the form of beach trips. Everybody is expected to join in on the fun. It’s the TaskUs culture. It’s what makes TaskUs ridiculously good.
