An Insider's view of Tango Card

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

The work/life balance exemplified from the top down. Ever since I joined 6 years ago, our CEO has visibly made time for family, whether it’s picking up his young son from TaiKwonDo practice or meeting up with his family for mid-week lunch near the office. The leadership team actually takes time off and encourages employees to do the same.

As a member of the marketing team, each day can look very different. Whether it’s traveling to various cities to rep our company at tradeshows, writing copy for blog posts and marketing campaigns, or working with our customers to highlight their success stories, my role as marketing manager offers me a ton of variety and autonomy over my day!
