An Insider's view of ReviewTrackers

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The best way for me to describe ReviewTrackers is that it has never felt like someone was building a wall but instead has always felt as though my colleagues are extending a table. We are laid back and fun but also growing at such a fast pace that it is impossible not to find yourself surrounded by a team that is energized.

Allie Reidy

Sales Development Representative

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

With the growth of the company, comes the challenge of creating a product that can keep up with more customers! We are constantly working on making our software faster, more reliable, and easier to use for a well-rounded scalable product.

Steffeni Veren

Backend Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

ReviewTrackers has allowed me to continue pursuing my academic goals while giving me an opportunity to gain real experience in my field of interest. There have been many internal and external resources made available along the way that have helped me to balance my personal life and my career.

Alejandro Ocon

Finance Associate

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As the CEO and Founder of the company, I make it a goal to have lunch with members of the ReviewTrackers team every week. I enjoy getting to know everyone better and learn what drives them. These casual lunches make me more accessible to the rest of the team while allowing them to get to know me on a more personal level as well.

Chris Campbell

CEO

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

The work-life balance I have at ReviewTrackers made me realize that I never actually had it prior to working here. We cultivate an environment where we show up on time, hustle, and pack up at a normal hour because we accomplished what we needed to.

Product Manager
