An Insider's view of DocuSign

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There is always something new to learn and the opportunities to grow are endless. Chicago has a growing tech community, so it’s great to help contribute to that growth. Our Chicago office has a very collaborative group of people and is an exciting place to work as we expand. The happy hours and informal guitar jam sessions aren’t bad either.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Everyone has tremendous amounts of knowledge in different fields, you can go to anyone and just pick their brains. I feel like I’ve learned more here than anywhere else I’ve ever worked. My coworkers are great. Not only do we have similar interests, sports, games, and shows. We all have the drive to do our craft better.

How does the company support your career growth?

DocuSign encourages anyone’s desire to learn more and provide you with multiple opportunities to expand your knowledge. For example, we have an Educational Assistance Program that gives employees a chance to pursue continued education and get reimbursed! I’ve grown a lot since I’ve started working here and am now where near plateauing.
