Since you landed on this article, I’ll go ahead and assume you are already an avid user of this new, invite-only drop-in audio chat, or you’ve heard of this platform and might be curious to know its whereabouts and the lessons it can teach early startup founders.

If you’ve had enough of social media and exacerbating your FOMO with yet another platform with content you are missing out on is not on your priority list, we get it. No judgment here.

Few months into 2020, we wouldn’t have believed that this year was going to lead to so many positive changes in our company. It was hectic, indeed, but we managed to ride the wave together.

We had ups and downs and fought the inner battles between anxiety and excitement, two common emotional states amid a series of big changes.

Even with all this hassle going on, 2020 turned out to be the year when we reinvented the way we work and play.

We are now remote-first.

In 2019 we were proud to have opened an office in Copenhagen and extend our reach overseas.

Alright, so technology took over the world. It is at the core of every great big company out there. Microsoft, Apple, IBM, you name it, and as far as I know, this isn’t going to change. At least not soon.

Companies that started as offline businesses a decade ago are now relying on technology to generate revenue and bring more business to the table. Take a quick look at eCommerce, and numerous times it proved the value software brings to the retail scene.

Today, technology helps businesses generate more, bringing exposure and making them more accessible to people like you…


Before starting to write this article, we took a quick trip to memory lane and read our one-year anniversary retrospective, RebelDot after one year: sugar, spice and everything nice? Scrolling through the titles, we knew right away that keeping this article under a reasonable word count is going to be a challenge — and this, couldn't make us more proud to be Rebels.

Despite all the bumpy roads and challenges (COVID-19 included), our second Rebel year was crowded with time together, lessons to learn, new opportunities and, of course, challenges. We made plans, and not everything happened according to our…


In this article, we are going to talk about Agile Development and its advantages and disadvantages in comparison to a Waterfall approach. We will give you enough insight to help you decide on the best plan for your next big digital product.

Before getting started, we feel it is important to give you a quick overview of our history and expertise as a company.

RebelDot started as a tech subsidiary of a large product company in Washington, the USA, in 2008. For a few solid years, we worked on building digital products for large & renowned insurance companies, as well as Fortune 500 companies. We spent four years perfecting and solidifying our approach to building digital products. Later in 2012, we decided that we wanted to use our product knowledge and experience in helping companies, startups and enterprise, accelerate their way towards…


In this article, we are going to shed light over what an MVP is, why you should start with an MVP, and we’ll help in finding out how much your first version of the product might actually cost you.

Having been in the world of digital products for more than a decade, we had the opportunity of interacting with an impressive number of entrepreneurs looking to bring innovation to their sector. We’ve seen established businesses looking to digitalize their processes with the help of technology, enthusiast startup founders at the beginning of their career investing all their time and money into building something successful and, last but not least, serial entrepreneurs already accustomed to the startup scene, trying to make their way through the competitive world of technology startups.

The clients we interacted with differed not only in their…


Hi there,

We are starting this article series to share the story behind Visidot, our own startup, with you.

As you might already know, this is the first article of the series. We are going to take you through the journey of building Visidot from the very first moment we identified the need for a digital visitor log, the decision to build it and everything in between. Ready?

A look into Visidot, the visitors' management system

If you have been following us for a while now, you might already know that we are a bunch of creative, solution-oriented Rebels. …


Last week was the first entire week in which all rebels worked entirely from home. We decided that to keep ourselves and our dear ones safe, the best thing we can do is stop meeting together at the office every day and play our part in flattening the curve. It’s strange how the time we live in is teaching us that care can have a different shape and meaning. This time, caring for each other means keeping a social distance, and we have to embrace that.

Working from home has always been part of the culture here at RebelDot, and we would often have some of our colleagues take WFH days on different occasions. This only meant that logistically wise, everyone was ready to move the entire working setup from the office to their homes, with laptops, screens, plants and office desk chairs where needed.

Building digital products for companies around the world and being part of several product teams in Europe and the USA came with the advantage of already having a remote-ready working environment — we just needed to translate every good habit and…


Until COVID-19 is contained, more companies are advising their employees to work from home. To help you effectively lead your product teams, here are a few tips on managing WFH teams.

Before we start, remember that remote working has been around the tech scene for a long while now. Most of the tech & product companies working from offices already have procedures that can easily translate into a home environment. All it takes is an extra mile walk into making sure that your team has a clear sense of collaboration and productivity.


It’s March, which means that besides enjoying the weather getting warmer, this month we celebrate women a little bit more than we do during the rest of the year. We make sure to bring chocolate, flowers and all the kind words with us at the office, all to make them feel special.

At RebelDot, we are over 20 women software engineers, delivery managers, HR, marketing, business development specialists and product managers. We love the tech community we get to work and experience with every day, but we know it hasn’t always been easy for women in tech to pursue a…
