An Insider's view of Skilljar

How does your team reward individual success?

On the sales team, we celebrate everything from small wins with slack emojis to raffle ticket incentives for larger deals. At the end of the week, we do social sit-downs to talk through what we learned.

Carrie

Sales Development Representative

What does your typical day look like?

There’s no typical day for the product team. A normal day could consist of a customer interview, launching a new product, sprint planning with developers, and brainstorming with a product designer. No two days look the same, but that's part of what makes the work interesting.

Senior Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

The biggest way that Skilljar supports my career growth is in providing me with the flexibility and trust to take on new projects. My managers and the leadership team give me a lot of control over my job and how I want to grow. I have learned and grown more in my short time here than I have been able to in the last few years in my previous roles.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Skilljar has a unique office vibe that's a pleasure to come into. Yes, it has the typical start-up rollercoaster, but things are done with so much intention and care that it always feels like things are on track. Team members care about the details of each other's lives as much as the details in their work, it's really great.
