Welcome to the Paleo development introduction doc.
This doc is a top level view of the Paleo development projects. We update this doc regularly to display the most current development projects and structure.
If this is your first time viewing the doc, please go over each section (menu items on the left) and familiarise yourself with the content.
What exactly is the Paleo product?
Paleo is essentially a platform that makes it easy for B2B merchants to trade with each other. Paleo has categorised B2B merchants in 6 categories: Manufacturers, Suppliers, Retailers, Brands, Distributors and Professionals.
A front-end mock-up version can be seen:
Who are the Paleo customers?
Paleo is aiming to serve B2B customers worldwide. As part of the development team you will not be in direct contact with customers tough.
In general, we are focusing on all types of B2B merchants that are mentioned above. Luckily, we will be taking over the merchants from another platform (from the company that I previous founded), so we will be starting with around 2000 merchants on the public launch.
With the MVP (1st public launch), we plan to main focus on the following 2 merchant types:
Suppliers and manufacturers. (Mostly in India)
Retailers and brands in the EU and the US.
Our other merchant focuses are:
What are the priorities for Paleo?
At the moment, our top priority is to release our MVT as soon as possible. Hopefully in about 3-4 months.
The MVP includes the most basic features: allowing merchants to upload their data catalogs, match columns in data catalog with the sql product database, and allowing them to place orders on the platform.
What are the priorities for the team?
As a founder, I’ve always prioritised culture, well-being of the team, and excitement for the product. We are currently looking for a team that we’ll be able to grow with and that will be part of the development of the company.
How does the Paleo team communicate?
We are in contact everyday, and our main tools of communication are:
As we are mostly remote, most of the communication is not over a direct video call, however, we try to plan at least one video call with everyone once a week, and anyone can always request a call if they feel like its needed.
: We are active on Slack the whole day. Slack is a messaging communication tool for teams.
: We use Google meet for video calls and direct screen-shares. This helps
: We use
to send visual screen-shares for better team communication.
Note: we also work with advisors for smaller projects. If you ever come across something where help is needed, then you can always ask to hire an advisor to help out. This can be an engineer that specifically focus on a certain technology or an expert that specialises on broader topics.
