An Insider's view of ActiveCampaign

What are some social events your company does?

Pre COVID-19, we were known for some amazing events-swanky holiday parties, family-friendly picnics, awesome global kick-offs, first class P Club., etc. We needed to rethink this so are being creative in how we engage teams and across teams. We are hosting a Talent Show, cooking classes, trivia, our monthly speaker series-all virtual but still fun!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Accepting an offer at ActiveCampaign was more than an exciting change—it was a career investment. I am encouraged to follow my strengths and run with opportunities. I started creating educational content, which led to traveling the country to lead customer workshops. Then I transitioned to product marketing, where I continue to grow as a leader.
