Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Everyone is really kind and hard-working in a way that pushes you to do your best. We always strive to have clear communication so that politics and games don't factor into daily work. It really does feel like we're on the same team, working towards common goals. I go home every night proud of what I've accomplished.


Lead Visual Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Although not always possible, I'm old school and try to have in person interactions with other team members whenever I can. Developing an understanding of what other department goals are has also helped me build relationships with others as a way to see we are all supporting one common company mission.


Product Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started out in Customer Success and slowly started taking on more responsibilities outside of my role. After about a year, I proposed a new role to leverage my interest and skills in writing, and was given the opportunity to work on our product communications. Now I've fully transitioned onto the marketing team and learn something new everyday.
