An Insider's view of Ansarada

What's something quirky about your company?

Our CEO always tells our people to embrace what makes us weird, and I think we really take that to heart in the Chicago office. Jokes fly around the office, folks work out together at lunch, and we practice radical candor regularly. Together we create an environment that brings out the best in one another.


Global People Experience Coordinator

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Ansarada takes steps to ensure that it’s most pressing matters are assessed from every perspective. This atmosphere of cohesion is reinforced with a structure of industry-specific pods that are comprised of individuals from sales, marketing and customer success, each merging unique individual experiences to apply new insights to old problems.


Account Executive, Consumer

How does the company support your career growth?

I started at Ansarada on the Customer Success team, then transitioned into a pseudo Sales Development role and then became an Account Executive all within two years. Leadership in the US facilitated my growth and placement from CS to Sales based on my strengths and personal desires. If you have the drive, you will get where you want to be.


Account Executive, Technology

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

We have a culture of transparency at Ansarada, and that stems from open communication channels. I always try and be available to not only my direct reports, but everyone in the office. Everyone has my cell phone number and knows that my (figurative) door is always open.


Head of the Americas

What projects are you most excited about?

Internally, I'm excited about scaling our industry pod structure. We're honing in on a handful of exciting industries with a lot of opportunity and our teams are coalescing around what they can do to have maximum impact on success for these pods. Externally, I'm discovering new use cases from customers that we hadn't even thought of ourselves.
