An Insider's view of Snapsheet

How does your team reward individual success?

Engineers that take initiative in driving product or architecture decisions are rewarded by being given more ownership in that area. We have Hack Days every other Friday which allows Engineers to build proof of concept projects that demonstrate the value of an idea. Strong ideas often become roadmap projects with that individual taking the lead.


VP of Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

Our machine learning initiatives are very exciting! We have a lot of data, which means we have enough training data to build sophisticated and accurate models. We have data of all different formats too, and the sky's the limit on how we can use it. It feels amazing to train and build a model that can perform tasks just as well as a human can!

What does career growth look like on your team?

We’ve recently launched career pathing for each department in which career growth and expectations are clearly defined. Because our managers are focused on coaching and teams are focused on collaborating, all employees are developing each day through dynamic coaching, challenging projects and collaboration with peers.


Director of Talent Management

What is your vision for the company?

I started this company to not only be a game-changer in the industry but to also build a culture where every person feels respected and values doing the right thing. You may hear me welcoming new hires to the ‘Snapsheet Family’. Employees should be empowered to bring ideas, make things happen, and in a word, THRIVE.
