An Insider's view of cleverbridge

What's something quirky about your company?

The nap room. A solid 10 minutes swinging in that hammock on your lunch break after a heavy meal really gets you energized for the rest of the day. Just don't mistake it for one of our Chicago movie themed conference rooms. The Dark Knight can be misleading. If napping isn't your vice, never fear! Beer buggy Fridays are always near!

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a member of our sales team I rely heavily on collaboration. Obviously, marketing and sales work very closely together to help get our message out and bring leads in, but everyone plays a role in our success. Departments like design & development, legal & compliance, and finance all provide insights and expertise through the sales process.

Senior Sales Account Executive

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I started here, I was still, in a sense, trying to figure out what I wanted to "do" in my career. In my first year as a CS Rep, I had an opportunity to attend a six-week Introduction to Web Design, taught in-house by one of the designers. After the class ended, a position on the Front End team became available, I applied and got the job!

Front End Developer

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

One-on-one meetings are one key aspect of being accessible to my team. I focus on listening more than talking and ask open-ended questions to understand what makes my team tick, professionally and personally. By identifying strengths and career goals, I can refer projects, tasks, and training in the future to better align with those ambitions.
