Director of Business Development

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Working with a small and close-knit team also means fostering friendships, contributing your time and skills and sharing responsibilities whenever you see fit. The open office concept promotes cross-departmental collaboration because there's no better way to solve a problem than turning to a team-mate who's just one desk away!

My time with PrintWithMe has delivered unparalleled insight into the inner workings of a company. Through working on a small team all united towards the same goal, I have received specific and actionable guidance from leaders who have a thorough understanding of my strengths and weaknesses and the experience to help me improve.

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

I love when teammates bring their unique and creative ideas to the table. In fact, most of our best ideas have been employee-generated. In the last few months, we have opened new markets, launched new marketing campaigns, and overhauled processes due to employee-created initiatives.



What are some things you learned at the company?

Working here has taught me the value of realizing the bigger picture. Because our team is so supportive and close-knit, I have a great understanding of how each piece comes together to build the PrintWithMe grid. I wouldn't have this opportunity anywhere else, and am grateful to have learned how to manage a network like ours in every aspect.
