An Insider's view of Kazoo

How does your team reward individual success?

We try to strike the right balance between rewarding both individual and collective success. Personal recognition most often is peer-to-peer with colleagues, managers, and execs amplifying and commenting on appreciation. The team members truly value the feedback, and it helps create a more aligned, supportive, and connected company culture.

Casey

Chief Marketing Officer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Kazoo has been working hard to rethink and redesign how Performance Management and Rewards & Recognition platforms will directly integrate together. We are laser-focused on understanding best practices, techniques, and ensure we’re building a solution that creates an awesome employee experience that keeps people connected with their team and peers.

What does career growth look like on your team?

A deep passion for the work we do, the discipline to do the hard work day in and day out, the willingness to be uncomfortable because you know that discomfort brings growth, the ability to brush off the rejection you get on a daily basis, a natural curiosity that drives your ability to ask more questions, and a desire to have fun!
