An Insider's view of ForwardLine Financial

What’s the vibe like in the office?

This is not a typical corporate office. The company focuses on finding the right live/work balance. They understand the importance of building relationships and the opportunity to grow. Yes we are here to work but they actually care about how we are doing and what they can do to make things better.

Funding Consultant

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Being in Product means being cross functional and getting fully involved in processes.
It also means collaborating with other teams on initiatives: Providing context, setting expectations and getting everyone on the same page and all those are done via meetings, emails, skype, slack, Jira, Trello amongst many other tools.
