An Insider's view of Tovala

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

At Tovala, one of our core values is leading full lives. We work hard, but also strive to create an organization that is “about time” and encourages people to prioritize their health, family, and life.



How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The Data Team at Tovala abides by these principles: 1. Be a person, not your job - Respect, kindness, and levity increase the success rate of collaborative projects. 2. Best answer wins - We care about the quality – not the source – of ideas. 3. Over-Communicate - We meticulously communicate progress, blockers, and changes – though we don't nag!

Director of Data

How does the company support your career growth?

I have grown with Tovala from packaging meals at one of our facilities to now analyzing data on the Ops team to ensure that our customers receive their meals on time! Over the past 3.5 years I have been promoted four times. I have had the opportunity to take on increasing responsibility, understand the business, and grow immensely!

What's something quirky about your company?

I know it sounds like a cliche when people say that their company is like a family, but truly Tovala is like my family. There’s so much care and respect among team members that motivates me and everyone always jumps right in to help. I’ve also had the privilege as an early member to see this team grow quickly and maintain the same caring culture.
