An Insider's view of SpotMe

What's something quirky about your company?

With a diverse team of 140 professionals from 30 nationalities, one of the things that I appreciate the most is how we all come from different backgrounds and can therefore assist each other on different levels. We each bring very unique skills to the team which is quite enriching.

How does the company support your career growth?

Personally, I'm constantly inspired with new projects and goals that challenge me to be a better professional. The beauty of developing in your career, is to do things that are out of your comfort zone, maybe fail, but always learning and improving ways to be better. What I love about SpotMe is the support and trust I get to become a true leader.
