An Insider's view of AvePoint

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

Given the advantages that working from home had on work-life balance during Covid, we adopted a Hybrid Working Model where people go to the office an average of 2 days a week. This has been the best balance over the last year as it allows for more personal/family time when not commuting, but you still see the people you (honestly) love working with

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Our team’s mission is to put forth a solution to a customer defined problem. We aim to ensure that not only is the proper product put in place but the services being delivered are specific to the customer’s need and successful. It’s important for us to work hand in hand with our delivery & customer success teams to enable our customer's success.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I just celebrated 3 years here & can’t believe how much I’ve grown since I started. After having success as an Account Executive, I became a Team Leader, & as the team grew I was promoted to Sales Manager & then Director. Working remotely, I’ve loved finding new ways to help my Reps grow & develop. I can’t wait to see what the next 3+ years brings!


Director, Mid-Market Sales

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