An Insider's view of BrokerX

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have a very open office with tons of "energy" since we have a lot of exciting products and team goals for this first quarter and 2021. Our team has a wide array of backgrounds, but the main overlapping characteristics are entrepreneurial, gritty, curious, fun and team players. We all collaborate often to share findings and ideas.

Matt

VP of Sales

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The biggest problem our team is solving is establishing trust and transparency in an industry that has historically suffered from lack of regulatory oversight, standardization, and has been afflicted with bait and switch schemes. We're solving this by innovating, administering critical oversight, aligning stakeholders, and empowering consumers.

Lindsay

VP of Marketing

What are some things you learned at the company?

Being new to an industry creates an adaptable mindset that fast-tracks learning. I have learned about accounting, sales, support, and so much more. Here, there is care and guidance for each department you want to learn more about. My role is not limited to one thing; if there is help needed in another department, we jump in to help out our team.

Clinton

Head of Pricing

What is your vision for the company?

The energy industry is a volatile market, which is very deprived of regulatory oversight, standardization, and afflicted with bait and switch schemes. Our mission is to establish trust and transparency by uniting utilities, suppliers, brokers, agents, and consumers through data.
