Insider's spotlight

What's something quirky about your company?

We blast DJ Khaled "All we do is win" for every new sale! Funny how that song never gets old.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined the company as employee 6 and we are now over 50. My friends thought I was crazy joining such a small company, but it was more of a calling for me. In my previous career, my life felt stagnant; and now every day provides a new challenge to solve.

Maria

We exist to challenge the talent status quo so our customers can win more conversations.
