Without any further ado, your top five:
5. Lucky Carrot is an employee engagement platform that enables peer-to-peer recognition (with redeemable carrots) and promotes company values.
“Like your powerful insights on employee interactions…, predicting possible turnover. Great to bring visibility to employee relationships. Your "Interaction Graph" is supercool 🤩.” arakelyan
4. Typedream is a website builder with a Notion-like interface for making any website look good with minimal effort.
“Man, such a great match between how my brain structures and how websites render. Love it.” Daniel Shein

2. Tango automatically creates step-by-step how-to guides as you complete your work, with screenshots, links, and descriptions.
“Awesome stuff! Superfast way to document processes — and even faster for the viewer since it focuses on the important highlights. Better than video for sharing step-by-step workflows!” Mark Lamb
1. Sprig (formerly UserLeap) is a product research platform that lets you run microsurveys within your product, record interviews, and test design concepts.
“Recruiting and creating authentic context are my two most significant pain points when doing user research; I'm thrilled to see a product that seems to address both 🎉” Josh T
Until next year!
With remote work still on the rise, we’re expecting to see more tools to enable digital nomads this year. Enter Insured Nomads.
The team launched World Explorer, an insurance plan that combines remote work support with travel medical insurance for those on short-term trips abroad. Taking modern insurance a step further, maker Andrew Jernigan also shared that later this month, they’re “announcing how payment can be made with cryptocurrency.”
Penpot brings design freedom to product teams
Collaboration between designers and developers can get messy. Penpot is a multiplayer, open-source design platform that makes it easy for everyone on your team to be part of the design process.
Open source + SVG and web standards = zero vendor lock-in. Penpot also offers cloud and self-host service, giving your team absolute freedom.
Bye-bye, design silos. 👋
A huge thanks to all of you — the makers, early adopters, and product lovers in the community — for so many amazing highlights in what was another wild year. We can’t wait to see what you’ve got for us in 2022. We’ve got plenty coming for you, too.
