An Insider's view of Ontra

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Everyone is trusted to take time off throughout the year when they want to, and they actually do take time off. I also have my Slack notifications turned off every night, on weekends, and on PTO. We’re all about finding ways to achieve ambitious goals with sustainable and healthy day-to-day processes.

User Experience Designer

What does your typical day look like?

I spend most of my time with our customers to understand the tech-enabled legal processes currently in place and offer recommendations on products and services that will support their continued success. I work across the organization from partnering with our attorney partners- to collaborating with the Product team to improve and scale our process.
