What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

I have had the opportunity to build a platform from the ground up. Opportunities like these are few and far between in this day and age. FTD has been like a master class in leadership for me, and it has produced a fundamental mind shift for me on what leadership means.

Dimple Rao

Senior Director of Product Management

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

On our FOL team, we are creating a feature complete platform migration for all of our florist sites. This is a rather large task in that most of our florist sites look like they were created in the .COM era of the internet. Our new platform will provide huge UX boons. In addition to self-improvement, it may also attract new florist partners
