An Insider's view of Showpad

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in our Chicago office is unlike any other startup I've ever been a part of. Everyone is smart, humble and effective. Even though we are all busy, everyone is always willing to offer help or guidance - even if it outside of their wheelhouse. We all genuinely enjoy each other's company and want to see our teammates succeed.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration is absolutely key for my team, since we’re tasked with bringing many different groups together. And as an international organization, we’re building relationships not only across departments, but across the world too. The key for us is to show how we provide value and prove how our collaboration impacts both revenue and culture.
