As 2022 comes to an end, we’re taking the opportunity to look back on an incredibly exciting year at Heady. From making key leadership hires and growing our team to tackling even bigger and better projects than ever before, it’s been a year of epic growth across the spectrum.

 

From Brooklyn to Mumbai and spanning countless Slack messages and Zoom calls in between, this year we made major strides toward fulfilling our vision of the kind of digital product consultancy we want to be — and we’re in a great position to continue riding that momentum into 2023.

 

As we prepare to ring in the new year, here’s a look back at key Heady moments from the past 12 months.

Office

 

We Returned to the Office

After working for home for the entirety of 2021, we finally returned to in-person work last spring — and it wasn’t a decision we took lightly.


We surveyed our team about their wants and needs, fostering an open dialogue and ultimately implementing a new hybrid work model that brings us into the office two days a week. After returning to our previous Mumbai office and finding a newer, larger space in Brooklyn, we’re confident it’s the best of both worlds: Our team gets the continued flexibility of WFH while also benefiting from the kind of human connections that simply can’t be made over Zoom.

We Grew the Heady Team, Big Time

2022 was a year of major growth for Heady, and we focused on building out our leadership team with a handful of key hires:

We also expanded both our Mumbai and Brooklyn teams significantly, adding dedicated resources in critical roles across the organization and doubling down on our development capabilities. Overall, we grew the Heady team by nearly 40% in 2022, and we’re looking to fill even more roles heading into 2023 (check out our openings here).

We Built Some Amazing Digital Products

Time flies when you’re having fun — and building best-in-class digital products. This year we continued to build on our work with a national sneaker retailer, partnered with not one but two companies who are making waves in the skincare industry, and worked with innovative brands across the spectrum of industries, from coworking spaces and gaming to healthcare, fintech, and beyond. Here’s a look at a few of our biggest digital product launches of 2022.

Heyday iOS & Shop Web Apps

We created two bespoke digital applications for modern skincare experts Heyday, building a fresh-faced, omnichannel solution for both their customers and their estheticians.

Hydrafacial Website

We built a stylish and streamlined custom web solution for skincare gurus Hydrafacial to market their patented technology to both potential partners and end users.

Melissa Wood Health iOS App

We built custom software for fitness, wellness and mindfulness entrepreneur Melissa Wood-Tepperberg that enables her to own her brand’s digital future, making a more mindful lifestyle accessible to all while empowering creators to grow their audiences.

VersusGame iOS App

VersusGame built an innovative platform that gives creators a new way to monetize their audience by gamifying real-world events. Heady provided support for their iOS app to make it all possible.

We Made Heady an Even Better Place to Work

 

Group (2)-1This year we launched a new Heady benefit that we’re incredibly proud of: sabbatical leave. All full-time Heady team members are now eligible for a two month sabbatical after three years of employment. We’ve built an amazing team and we want them to continue to stick around, so it just made sense to give them the time and space to pursue what they’re passionate about.

We also formally committed to our long-term goal of becoming carbon neutral, signing on with a partner who will help us calculate our global carbon footprint and then take the necessary steps to offset it in 2023.




Making Heady a great place to work is everything to us, so we made plenty of time for play this year. From potlucks and picnics to happy hours and karaoke, we rarely passed up an opportunity for team building (although around here, we just call it “hanging out”).

And all that effort we put into building a company that makes a positive impact didn’t go unnoticed: We were officially recognized as a certified Great Place to Work™, with 96% of employees saying that Heady is a great place to work. We couldn’t be more proud of this accolade and we’re excited to dream up even more ways to make Heady great in 2023.

From all of us at Heady, we wish you a joyful holiday season and a happy new year.
