Rosemary

Chief People Officer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Knowing motives, responsibilities and objectives is key in building functional cross collaboration. If you take ownership of this and do your own research (look up their org chart, LinkedIn profiles, read through work produced) in conjunction with asking questions this goes a long way to mutual understanding.

Jess

VP, Customer Success

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Over the years, I've worked for both corporate and not for profit organizations and SPINS feels the most nurturing and organic. Individuals and teams are empowered to define a path to success. If you are curious and passionate, you can forge multi-disciplinary partnerships & make a difference beyond the boundaries of your specific department/role.

Andrea

Senior Product Owner

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We have a unique culture where our decision making is not encumbered by heavy processes like those at multi-billion dollar companies and at the same time, in the last few years, our leadership team has added structure that adds rigor to our operations and product development.
