War report: June 2022
We share our milestone numbers and objectives in our June 2022 War Report, as well as the learnings and advice we have collected. We hope they will be useful in providing lessons for others who are in similar situations to ours or can benefit from their publication. Building in public is not easy, but we pretend our best.
June has been a FULL MONTH! We handled our very first event (#FredCon22), we had our Second Xuntanza (our teambuilding meetings), we reached our sales goals and made a new sales record in Manfred, and we launched new functionalities for our Manfredite’s profile. All our departments have grew and we are READY to face a NON-STOPPING summer.
Sales (without taxes): We’re growing and the numbers are with us. This is GREAT news. Our Scouting team is bigger than ever, and we’re turning into a record-breaking team. Again, numbers are coherent with our team and their effort.
Billing (without taxes): Billing
Sales (without taxes): consulting services, Manfred Daily offers, or commissions coming from hiring processes.
Billing (without taxes): invoices sent out. They tend to match sales, but we still have a certain time gap and, in addition, the invoicing assumes the possible corrective invoices that have to be made.
Current: the company's total assets and economic rights (cash, assets, outstanding receivables, and dividends).
As you may know, we give big importance to numbers, but also to team goals. Manfred’s not just a services company, but also a product one. That’s why reaching our goals month by month is as important as reaching the sales numbers.
June has been an intense month. First, we have handled the first event organized by Manfred: #FredCon22. It took place on the 29th July at Teamlabs, Madrid. There were two talks, headed by David Bonilla and José Manuel Calderón, and a Round Table, in which Bhavna Karani, Ramón Egea and Irene de los Ríos participated (and José Martín moderated). It was a success. We found many details to fix for the next occasion, but it still the first event we have ever organized.
Our Product team has launched the multi-language mode for the job offers on our web page. Now, with just a click, you’ll be able to access the offer in Spanish or English. Also, a new view for the Manfred profile has been launched: the classical one.
There are, also, six new Fredders that have joined our team in June. Jess, Alejandra and Lara, to the Scouting team. Óscar, backend developer, and Adrián, Support Technician. Also, JuanPe, new Marketing Intern.
- To sale and invoice at least €220K (😁). Sales goals are increasing as our team grows. Once again, our Scouting team prove that they have reached the cruise speed!

- Multi-language offers (😁). COME ON! They’re already prepared. There are some offers that are just displayed in one language, but the largest part is translatable in just one click.
- Allow different views for Manfredite's profiles. YAY! (😁) We have implemented a new view for the Manfredite’s profile. Now, there is not just available the normal view, but the classical one (that allows more info in one view and it’s more similar to a standard CV).
