Hey there! We're the folks behind Retrium.

And we're kind of obsessed with getting retrospectives just right.

Our story

At Retrium, we are motivated by a desire to unleash the power of retrospectives for distributed teams. That's because we believe that retrospectives are the key to high-performing agile teams. Yet many distributed teams fail to run retrospectives. Why is that?

That's the question we asked ourselves in the fall of 2014. And after doing just a bit of research, it was easy to find the answer. It wasn't that distributed teams didn't want to run retrospectives -- they did. It was that there simply weren't any high-quality tools that enabled them to run retrospectives effectively.

As agilists and members of the scrum community, that didn't make much sense to us. Whether collocated or distributed, all teams deserve the opportunity to continuously improve. We're here because we are true believers in the power of retrospectives to do just that.

Retrium -- Agile retrospectives made easy.


Our Core Values

More than how we work, this is who we are.
Level Up

Continuously improve upon everything you do. Tomorrow is better than today. Focus on leveling up yourself, your team, the product, our company, and our industry.

Bias for Action

Think first, but know when to act. And when you're not sure what to do, experiment freely. Analysis only gets you so far. Failures don't exist, only opportunities to learn.

Default to Autonomy

As a company, we have a mission. As a Retrimaniac, you are empowered to decide how to accomplish it. Take ownership and responsibility.

Focus on Quality

Whatever you do, do it with pride. Quality isn't a tax, it's a reflection of our craftmanship.

Listen. Learn. Teach.

All of us have more to learn. Listen to your fellow Retrimaniacs. Learn from them. But share your wisdom freely when there's something to be taught.

Be Your Amazing Self

Operate with integrity, empathy, and humility. Cultivate trust and respect. Enjoy what you do. Have fun. Be passionate. And by doing these things, be yourself.
