An Insider's view of PitchBook

What are some social events your company does?

I love that PitchBook makes a constant effort to put on fun creative events that keep us connected (even during covid!). In office, we have annual company events like the Mariners game, Ping Pong Tournament, and Wine + Chocolate Tasting where I was always able to meet folks from different departments with who I would never normally cross paths with

Jessie

Business Development Associate

What does your typical day look like?

UX Designers at PitchBook actively work on one main project at a time, but could be supporting multiple projects in development. I usually spend some time each day answering any questions that our development team has on in-flight projects and iterating designs if necessary. Every day is different as I’m constantly solving new problems.

How does the company support your career growth?

PitchBook made it a priority to support my growth by understanding my aspirations and aligning a plan to get me there. My vision was to be in a leadership position and PitchBook motivated me to achieve this by providing me with tremendous resources, guidance, and opportunities to push myself and succeed.

Nitin

SR. Research Associate

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

One of PitchBook’s core values is to embrace and drive change, which in turn promotes a scrappy, entrepreneurial working style and allows individual contributions to influence the direction of the company. We see examples of this every day from launching a weekend version of our newsletter to optimizing customer onboarding processes.

Amy

VP of People

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work on the accounts receivable team at PitchBook, which involves extensive collaboration with other teams to obtain and update client billing information, reconcile expenses and complete compliance forms. My role requires me to work closest with customer success and outside sales to improve processes for invoicing and error prevention.
