An Insider's view of Club Automation

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office is high energy & collaborative. We promote interaction within & across teams to build camaraderie. They say life happens in the kitchen & that’s true here too! Whether it’s grabbing coffee, sharing our family-style Friday lunches, or grabbing a beer at the end of the day, we check our egos at the door & have fun while working together.


Team Lead of Customer Service

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

To meet the demands of our fast-growing customers, my team builds applications focused on scalability and configurability. We are challenged to think innovatively about how our applications can service one customer or ten-thousand customers with an equally engaging and responsive user experience.


UI Architect

What does career growth look like on your team?

The demand for our product is growing which has led to a lot of growth opportunity. Leaders check in with their team members regularly to learn more about their long-term interests. There’s ample opportunity to shadow teammates in other roles and we’re encouraged to grow our skillset or explore a new one through resources like LinkedIn Learning.


Training Team Lead

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

At its core, Club Automation is an employee-driven organization. Innovation starts within and across our teams, and ideas flow outward from there; we make efforts not to be constrained by top-down thinking. We believe that there is no problem for which a knowledgeable, talented, and driven group of people cannot create a solution.


Director of Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started as an intern here, and right after graduating, I earned a full time BDR role. I was then promoted to an Account Executive 6 months later. It’s inspiring to work in a company that trusts you and recognizes potential for growth, encourages that growth, and gives you the necessary tools to become a leader and handle greater responsibilities.
