An Insider's view of Machinio

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I couldn't ask for a better vibe in an office setting. We are a very young and determined team with a shared focus in improving our technology. While we are laid back and community driven, we also push each other to become better in each individual role that benefits the company as a whole as well as personal development.


Business Development Representative, MachineryHost

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We bounce different ideas off of other team members, which is one of the things that makes this place so cool. Even if they work in a different team, everyone is approachable, and with that, working together to develop different strategies becomes easy.


Renewals Manager, Machinio

What makes someone successful on your team?

At any Machinio or MachineryHost team, success comes with a sense of responsibility, organizational structure and strategy within the role. Being proactive, taking ownership, "showing up" when needed, assisting your and other teams with different goals and, most importantly, having a no task is too small mentality is incredibly important.


Operations, Machinio and MachineryHost

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

I believe our team inspires a lot of our company's spirit when we're growing exponentially. We've recently launched our new SaaS product that's been going gangbusters and that validates the business, but more so, the employee buy-in and commitment to our overall vision of the company.


Partner and Vice President of Sales, Machinio and MachineryHost

What are some things you learned at the company?

Machinio was one of my first jobs and it has taught me a ton. I have learned several new selling and communication techniques throughout my 4 years of employment. Management is dedicated to helping their employees improve. I have also had the chance to learn about all the different industries we work within.
