For startups starting to scale, working with our team makes the most of these messy beginnings, combating early employee burnout and focusing efforts on the work that will make a measurable impact.
Our generalists are cross-functional operators with strengths in going from nothing to something (big). We believe in the power of systems thinking and untangling startup mess to make the early days the best days.
We’re experts at securing the right early stage tools and crafting key rules that support the incredible people who are scaling your startup.
We work with founders to systematize their vision, and unlock potential for scale. With our hands as founder proxy and team support, we extend startup reach to achieve milestones quickly.

Post idea-stage startups succeed because they’ve taken their “why” and crafted a clear “how”, and the best ones do it by using behavioral science and product manager methodology on their internal product. Some call it culture. We think it’s something more. We’ve watched generalists naturally apply these principles for success.
We use the fundamental principles of behavioral science most often used by product leaders building customer-facing products to create ideal operating systems and working environments for scaling startups. The byproduct of your internal product is your culture. And once you're a startup of more than one person, you have a culture that affects your ability to grow. Our work fundamentally builds your culture, system by system.
The tools you choose affect every part of your external product. We know them all and know how to use them.
Rules are simply constraints on how to and not to use internal systems. We right-size this for every startup team.
We fit your systems for your people, and bring in hands to be your founder proxies and support team, flexing functions as needed.
Your team's work habits compound have an outsized effect on your operations. We fit your systems for your people.

The nature of work is changing, and of All Trades is shepherding that change. By bringing together expert generalists to share best practices and tackle important work, oAT developed a new model of working that I’m excited to be a part of.
