Insider's spotlight

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

Networked Insights offers flexibility – and they do it in the right way. Colleagues are in the position to do what they need to do - Flexibility to work from home, flexible time off. Networked Insights wants to make sure our people are taken care of so they’re doing their best work.

Sebastian

Senior Architect

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

DevOps without broad inter-departmental buy-in would be toothless and silly, like an old tyrannosaurus without its dentures. We work closely with our developers to streamline every part of our development and deployment processes. So much company culture is wrapped up in even our most technical practices and inspiring when we can refine together.

Anjy

DevOps Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

The part I love most about working at Networked Insights is the great combination of collaboration and the entrepreneurial spirit. I enjoy working with brilliant colleagues on strategic initiatives that make an impact on our business. At the same time, to be highly supported in "Thinking Big" is truly inspiring.
