An Insider's view of Beyond Finance

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

Everyone at Beyond is hard-working, smart, and gets the job done. Because of that, there's a lot of trust when it comes to taking the time off we need. Leadership offers a generous PTO plan to support wellness and growth outside of work, and everyone encourages each other's non-work hobbies and interests through Slack channels and coffee chats!

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Everyone has total ownership over their work and ultimately has to decide the best way to accomplish their objectives. I encourage my team to use all the resources they have available to them - internally and externally - to reach the best end state.
