An Insider's view of relayr

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The culture in relayr’s Chicago office is unmatched and a breath of fresh air compared to other companies I’ve worked for in other major US cities. Working at relayr you will find that you’re surrounded by coworkers that you look up to and greatly respect as we are all experts in our own swim lanes.

Brittany Dweck

Senior Field Marketing Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

Digital transformation is a big buzz phrase in the industrial world relayr plays in. But in my role I work with CEOs who aren’t focused on technology per se, but rather how to stay relevant in their rapidly changing markets. Technology is a key element, but what’s most exciting to me is helping our partners use it to create new revenue streams.

Stefan Mustain

Senior Account Executive

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Relayr helps disrupt industrial markets. Teams are our life. It’s not about “me”, it’s about “us”! We encourage everyone to challenge the status quo. Key is not just state problems but ideas, always focused on new solutions. Frequent Open Q&A All Hands, 1:1’s are a norm and leaders are constantly listening for ideas and implement these as priority.
