What makes someone successful on your team?

At any Machinio or MachineryHost team, success comes with a sense of responsibility, organizational structure and strategy within the role. Being proactive, taking ownership, "showing up" when needed, assisting your and other teams with different goals and, most importantly, having a no task is too small mentality is incredibly important.

I believe our team inspires a lot of our company's spirit when we're growing exponentially. We've recently launched our new SaaS product that's been going gangbusters and that validates the business, but more so, the employee buy-in and commitment to our overall vision of the company.
