An Insider's view of Envoy Global

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the office is great! It is a fast-paced environment that is constantly changing and evolving, which means you are always learning and have the ability to grow within the company - even if that means moving to a different team. Never a dull moment! At Envoy, you are not just another cog in the machine, you get to be highly impactful.

Business Development Representative

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Technology is only as good as the real people backing it up - from all angles. We collaborate as one to provide a service and platform that is a seamless experience for a typically very document-heavy process. We want people to feel empowered and excited while navigating through a very nerve-wracking process. That is what we are all here for.

Jeni G.

Senior Sales Account Executive

What does career growth look like on your team?

Career growth is about carrying a sense of urgency and accountability at all times. Build your career by finding the opportunity and not waiting for the opportunity to find you. It’s important to drive change amongst your team, company, but most importantly – yourself.

Mike H.

Sales Director

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

Our semimonthly All Hands Meetings allow employees to see how the company is doing and ask questions in real time to members of leadership. One of our core values is our ability to be candid: we have pulse surveys, manager meetings, hackathons, and encourage all employees to bring up questions and suggestions to any member of leadership.

Lindsay Dagiantis

Vice President, HR

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As the Recruiter here at Envoy, I work with my fellow employees across the board, all departments in one way or another. Envoy really encourages a collaborative and cross-functional culture - where all of our teams unite toward one common goal: helping people work anywhere in the world, and essentially provide the coveted American Dream.
