Advance your engineering org

As your company grows, there are inflections points where you need to reconsider how you lead and operate as a company. Somewhere between 15-50 people company, as a leader, you can no longer hold everything in your head anymore. You might start feeling sentimental about the old days. Existing systems start to crack. At that tipping point, you have to start thinking systemically about how information is passed around and should focus on the message received. You're unsure how to change the status quo and start making a difference.

We work with startups, scale-ups, and established tech companies help improve existing processes by engaging with all stakeholders and provide guidance for better results. We support team growth, expansion, and building healthy cultures to increase employee engagement and performance.

Working with Blackmill was a huge help. As a startup, speed and growth is our strength as well as a challenge - but training and ongoing support with the Blackmill team really got us through some critical times!

Their tech experience and ability to personalise the approach based on our needs and timeline was so appreciated.

Elle and Lachlan's coaching has been a huge help as we've been scaling and formalising the engineering team at Raisely. They've been able to play the role of coach, mentor and consultant in a blend that I've found incredibly valuable. I've yet to come across another organisation that can coach at a personal level and also give tailored advice shaped by their domain knowledge.

Their ability to listen, understand, empathise and advise is wonderful. I always leave our sessions with a clearer view on the long term vision, an understanding of the reasons for moving in a particular direction, and an actionable set of next steps to get there. Their advice is always tailored to our team and circumstances, and never feels like generic one-size-fits-all advice.

If you're in a similar position to myself, and trying to figure out how to formalise a technlogy team at a growing startup, Elle and Lachlan are the people to get you there!

Nick Pedersen, Head of Engineering, Raisely

Growing rapidly in any company is always a hurdle, but especially in a start up when you're still developing your processes and culture. Blackmill helped us with staff training, with our approach to building a cohesive culture, and also with having difficult conversations with our team.

They were very accommodating and reliable, always making time to jump on a video call when we needed one. The Blackmill team are personable, and put an emphasis on building relationships with the company and the team in order to be most effective. Overall very positive experience.
