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.

What projects are you most excited about?

I am very excited about our team starting to shift parts of our application to the cloud. The SMS team is sending over 2.5 billion SMS messages a month, and that number is growing very fast. As a part of the core SMS team, a chunk of my work is finding ways we can scale our system more efficiently so as to better handle the growing traffic.

How does the company support your career growth?

The single biggest aspect of OpenMarket that has enabled my career growth is the knowledgeable and accessible leaders who have always made themselves available to meaningfully answer questions I've had about my career. Over my 7 years here, they have helped me crystallize my goals, worked with me to lay out a path to success, and provided feedback.

What is your vision for the company?

I lead the Global Operations organization for OpenMarket and I love my job! My vision for Global Operations is two fold: provide OpenMarket customers with the programs, resources, and support to make them wildly successful, and provide OpenMarket employees with the tools, resources and support to help them grow and excel.

What are some things you learned at the company?

One of the main lessons I’ve learned at OpenMarket is that you can’t do your best work unless you can be your authentic self. At OpenMarket I get to be my weird self on a daily basis – I feel like I really belong. I think across the board OpenMarket tries to foster that sense of belonging for everyone.
