An Insider's view of ServiceNow

What’s the vibe like in the office?

When I walk into a room, I don't feel different than any of my colleagues there. I’m free to express my opinions. Whatever I bring to the table, I'm free put it out there.

Ashita

Sr. Manager, Platform UX Engineering

What does your typical day look like?

It’s a good place to be in, in that it’s a company that’s growing very fast, but it doesn’t have that big company feel. You don’t feel like a number in a system and you can articulate and know where you want to go. There are people here who can help you get there.

Christian

Sr. Partner Development Executive

What are some things you learned at the company?

When a VP told me that an opportunity had opened up on the customer support engineering team, I decided to leave the beaches of San Diego, California behind. I had expressed to my manager that I want to be a CIO or an executive and this opportunity brought me leadership training as well as international business experience.

Marie

Senior Director, Technical Support Management

What is your vision for the company?

Amazing products that create great employee and customer experiences and make work, work better, is our passion.

CJ

Chief product officer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

This is an idea space. It’s a place where we’re all operating on the same wavelength. We’re all interested in what we’re working on. And you hear it in people’s voices. You see it in people’s work. Everybody wants to be here. Everybody wants to work on these problems.
