An Insider's view of Braviant Holdings

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

This is one of the things that I really appreciate here at Braviant! I feel like it's encouraged to have a healthy work-life balance. People respect the fact that you have a life outside the office and if something comes up, they are super flexible with you to take care of it.

Debi G.

Marketing Associate

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We have a very open, small office that makes cross-team collaboration easy. The simplest way is to walk across the room and have a brief chat! No matter how people reach out, though, direct communication between teams is the norm -- no routing through managers or a complicated bureaucracy.

Dan B.

Senior Data Engineer

What does career growth look like on your team?

At Braviant, career development is what you make of it. There's plenty of opportunities and the sky is the limit!

Jen C.

IT Operations Manager

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

As a leader, I strongly believe that it's not my job to come up with all the ideas - it's my job to foster an engaging, collaborative environment where every single person on the team has a voice and can contribute to the company's strategy and road map.

Stephanie K.

CEO

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We're a small group, so collaboration is really just a matter of walking over to whomever you need to talk to and figuring things out. Everyone is willing to help because we're all focused on the same goals.

Chief Architect
