To a great 2013! More team members, new version, and California love

Hi everyone,

Even though we’ve been a bit quiet on our blog since we’ve announced our acquisition by Jive a little over a month ago, we’ve been really hard at work.

Just thought I would update you guys on what’s going on.

BRAND NEW VERSION

Omg

Well, we’ve rolled up our sleeves and accelerated development on V4, which is our upcoming (KILLER) product update coming up Q1 of 2013.

V4 in a nushell is : way faster, brand new design, brand new apps, more collaborative features (we’re taking this to a whole new level), and lots of surprises.

We believe that this is going to be – by far – the best product we’ve ever shipped. We’re really proud of this one, and is the fruit of so many years learning from our users and customers.

CALIFORNIA

2012-12-11_18

We’ve started relocating our team to Palo Alto, CA, and can’t be happier with the team of Jivers we’re joining. Exceptional team of passionate individuals working on some very ambitious projects for the next couple of years. What’s even more exciting, is how commited they all are about making Producteev, and the Jive+Producteev integration a success. Trust me, you will love what’s coming out of this.

NEW HIRES

Welcome-new-employee

To be able to achieve all of those projects, we’re looking to grow our team, especially on two fronts : Front End Engineer, and Back End Engineer. If you got what it takes and want to change the Productivity landscape, Hit us up, or simply share those two offers with your network, this will definitely be a fun ride. As far as the location of those two jobs: either Paris, France (to start, then relocation to California), or Palo Alto, CA.

That’s it for now folks, so let me take this opportunity to wish you all a fantastic 2013 filled with love, joy and dreams.

Thanks for the continuous support, and stay producteev!

Producteev is now part of Jive Software! And why everyone wins.

We’re very excited to share some big news with you: Producteev has been acquired by Jive*, the leader in Social Enterprise Software.When we started Producteev four years ago, the vision was to improve the way people were tracking tasks by creating an open platform with lots of entry points for your personal or team to-dos. After many product iterations, we finally found our sweet spot in 2010, and started improving our service month after month. Slowly but surely, we became available on different platforms such as iOS, Android, Mac desktop, as well as e-mail and IM.

In a couple of years, with a little less than $1.8M in venture funding, Producteev has become one of the heavyweights in the Task Management space, with over 2,000 paying corporate accounts today and growing.We wanted to go way further, and start offering a lot more to our current customers. We’ve been working on a brand new version for a couple of months already, and believe me, it’s like nothing we’ve ever done before. Stay tuned on this.

We had a couple of options for the future, like raising a bigger round, but Jive approached us with a highly seducing one: “We love what you do, we love the product, join us, and we’ll give you more resources to build a real software leader”.After spending a lot of time with multiple teams at Jive, our conclusion was that they were the kind of smart and nice people we really wanted to work with, who understand where we’re going with Producteev.

NOTHING IS CHANGING, PRODUCTEEV WILL ONLY GET BETTER, FASTER.The good news: Producteev will be even stronger in the coming years, with more resources, with lots of amazing updates to the product, news apps (!!), and obviously, smart integration points to Jive, so you can collaborate with your team on more than tasks (think discussions, blogs, ideas, files…). Check out Jive’s cloud product here.

THANKSI want to take that opportunity to thank all of you, our users, friends, supporters, who have followed the journey. You were the ones giving us the strength to keep trying during the tough times, so thank you.
A big THANK YOU to our investors and advisors (Doug, Oleg, Pascal, Dan, Florian, Jeremie, Christian and Christophe, Arthur…), who supported me no matter what. We owe you a lot. To Aric, my co-founder and CTO (and brother-in-law): you’re the man. To my team (Arico, Je, Ju, Ish, Bruno) : I am so proud of all you guys, you brought us here, that’s what make me excited to continue this journey all together.

As for our team’s next step, we’re all going to Jive, and the majority of us (including myself), will be moving to Jive’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California.We’re now back full speed working on V4 preparing some big surprises for you.

Onward!Ilan.

Meet Jerome and Carolyn: New iOS Engineer and Community person!

Jerome le Beau gosse

Jerome:

What do you do for Producteev?
I joined Producteev 1 month ago as an iOS Engineer. I’ll work on the Producteev iPhone app and on a “another-ios-device” app. I’m very excited about all this !

Where are you from?

I’m from Marseilles in the south of France. A very pleasant city near the Mediterranean sea, with the best soccer team !

Favorite Food ?
Chicken Fresco from Fresh&Co ;) I’m kidding, I would say Italian Food in general. I hope #Seamless will help me discover new food !

What is one way that helps you be more productive/motivated?
Users ! When I work on something it’s for them, user satisfaction and experience are the two things that keep me motivated.

What do you do in your spare time?
There are so much cool things to do when you’re in the Big Apple ! Let’s say I love hanging out, discover the American culture and meet new people… Oh, and I try to never miss a soccer game of Marseilles !  I was also a local organizer for Startup Weekend in France

Caro

Carolyn:

What do you do for Producteev?
I am Producteev’s new Community person.  I am very excited to work here and I enjoy all things technology.  I formally interned at Tutorspree as Marketing Coordinator.

Where are you from?

I am originally from New York, but live in Chatham, N.J

Favorite Food?

I like all food but if I had to choose I guess I would pick ice cream.  I also love cheese and all dessert.

What do you do in your spare time?

In my spare time I enjoy making art, hiking and playing with my two cats.

What is one way that helps you be more productive?

A side from using Producteev ;-), I find that yoga and running help me think more clearly and organize my thoughts making me accomplish more at work and all day.

Geek Rendezvous #geekrdv Game Night

It was geeks galore on our very first (and uber-successful) game night on 8/31/11! We all gathered ‘round in teams, and battled each other in a game of Celebrity, which is a cross-breed of Charades and Taboo. Oh, and food? Of course we got that covered! There was pizza, drinks, and prizes! The prizes given included Producteev t-shirts, and ThinkGeek gift certificates! Check out the slideshow!
We would like to thank all the attendees for making our game night a raging success. There will surely be more to follow! Would you like us to host a game night for geeks in your city? Let us know in the comments below, or heck, you can even tweet us!

You know what’s better than one Producteev intern?…

The bosses are out buying new desks today. The reason? Another new face at headquarters. Meet a second summer intern, Florian!
Florian
I’m Florian Auban, and I just joined the Producteev team for a six-month web developer internship.

I didn’t hesitate one second to leave the cozy French riviera and discover the City That Never Sleeps! I’m in my fourth year of engineering school in Nice after the 3 first years in Paris (following my high school in Carcassonne, in the south of France). In Télécom ParisTech, my engineering school, I specialize in Information and Web Technologies, Networks and Multimedia.

I have been passionate about web social technologies for the past 5 years. I even developed a social cooking website for a school project! Cooking is another passion of mine :)
When not coding, I love playing soccer. And even if it’s not America’s favorite sport, I hope to find other French and American players while here in NYC!
At Producteev, I already find inspiration from such a dynamic team, and being set in an exciting city is a bonus! Follow me on twitter @pioupioup.

Cheers to 3 years of Producteev – your fave task management app

Thanks to everyone who came out to our 3 year anniversary party last night. We had a blast celebrating with Producteev users and friends! As Ilan Abehassera, CEO, said in a short appreciation speech, “We wouldn’t have made it without the support of investors, our loved ones and families, and you — our customers!” See you next year!
