Not only that, our founder Sean Jackson had a deeper conversation with Tech Tribune’s team. They dove into everything from our founding story to what’s in store for us in the near future.

Some highlights from that conversation:

On why Sift was founded: "We founded Sift to help organizations leverage the immense power of their internal talent networks, and to make organizations more human in the process. We feel it should be easy to understand the knowledge, skills, and experience of your peers across your organization, and to understand your colleagues as more than just titles on an org chart."

Wondering how Sift is currently doing this at organizations today? Find out from Quicken Loans’ President and COO on how Sift allows everyone at his organization to understand how they fit into the larger picture of their organization and consequently drive the business forward as a result.

Sean’s advice for aspiring entrepreneurs: "Be problem-focused, not solution-focused. The way you first approach solving a problem is rarely the right answer, but if you have a meaningful problem, when you finally figure out the right solution, you can have a massive impact."
