An Insider's view of Basis Technologies

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Instead of balancing work and life, it’s about blending the two. As a parent, I may need to leave for part of the day or before 5. Everyone here understands and I don’t feel guilty. Even if I’m not sitting at my desk from 9-5, my work and my team's work will still be done on time. Basis is giving me the opportunity to live the best life I can.

Matt

Senior Director, Financial Planning

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm excited about evolving our data integrations because it is through integrations that we can automate workflows for all major channels and enable machine learning to solve complex problems at scale! I love discovering what we can accomplish through the power of data, automation, and artificial intelligence. This is the present and the future.

Juan

Director, Product Management

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I began my career at Basis Technologies in 2017 as an intern on the Research & Insights team. Since then, I have grown to become the Director of Research. I credit much of my success to the opportunities my manager has presented to me. She is an amazing mentor who challenges me and constantly encourages growth, which makes me thrive at Basis.

Maggie

Director, Research & Insights

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

One of the reasons the team is enabled to be more creative is that I don’t assume I know all the answers. I love an environment where team members come to a discussion to bounce ideas around and the magic as a path forward is co-created.
