An Insider's view of OpenMarket

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

Work-life balance is one of the things I appreciate most about working at OpenMarket. It’s a value our leaders are proud of, and I can share from experience that the company stands by it. Many of us have flexible schedules, which works well with having teammates in different time zones across the globe.

Niki

Product Marketing Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

In my role, I work closely with teams across all of OpenMarket. I partner cross-functionally to ensure our Global Operations teams are prepared to support new features and products and provide the best customer experience possible. Getting the work done as a team is one of the best things about what I get to do here at OpenMarket.

Robi

Principal, Technical and Business Operations

What are some things you learned at the company?

So many things… The world of mobile messaging is bigger and more complex than anyone can imagine. It has a language all its own. Our customers are doing amazing things and my colleagues are constant inspirations. I’ve learned what it is like to have strong collaborative leadership who value their people.

Lalo

Senior UX Designer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One of the best parts of OpenMarket is that we are small enough to allow teams to drive change and make a difference. Within the finance team, we typically have a handful of cross functional initiatives going at any given time. Overall we are constantly looking to innovate how we work and what we deliver as an organization.

Anthony

Director of Finance

What’s the vibe like in the office?

OpenMarket is flexible about working remotely but I like coming into the office anyway! It's nice having teammates nearby to help if you get stuck, and there's always a quiet corner if you need to focus. It's a really welcoming environment outside of work too - you can always find people chatting in the kitchen, playing ping pong, or getting lunch.
