An Insider's view of Valkre

What are some social events your company does?

We participate in a number of social events at Valkre. When we are not remote, we have weekly Happy Hour on Fridays. In summer we have what we like to refer to as ‘Valkre Days’ — team meetings followed by dinner and a fun activity the next day (kayaking, day at the arcade etc.) In late February we pack up and go on a ski trip for a few days!


Customer Operations Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

At Valkre, we have a culture of openness and connectivity; every individual feels empowered connecting to all levels of the company. From Engineering, Business, to Marketing, we freely connect on our shared vision. We leverage technology — staying connected via Slack, Zoom, and (If possible) in person.


VP of Engineering

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our team at Valkre is devoted and optimistic. We value everyone’s ideas, and encourage Team Member Engagement — ensuring that our voices are not just heard, but listened to. Fusing the above with having an internal drive and an entrepreneurial mindset, collectively strengthens the team while steering us forward as a company!

Marketing & Development

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Since starting the company, we have had Beer Garden every Friday at 3:00 PM. I think this is one of a variety of things we do to foster openness while creating a culture where people feel they can speak and contribute. As a team, we also participate in an annual ski trip — our secret sauce for a lot of things.



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

Everyone at the company has a unique opportunity to give feedback, brainstorm, and propose ideas to influence the company’s direction. Our environment is welcoming to innovation and input from everyone. This has become essential in fueling product development. The combination of feedback and teamwork is what helps us build on our product each day.
