An Insider's view of Limeade

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

Limeade offers the best work-life balance of any organization I’ve been with. As a working parent with 3 young children it is a major perk especially when need to drop off our kids, take them to an appointment or run an errand. Limeade knows that if you’re happy and fulfilled outside work, you’re going to be much more productive and engaged at work


Strategic Account Executive

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The We Are A Team value is one of the most lived values at Limeade. We collaborate through cross-team initiatives and are encouraged to connect with other teams on a personal and professional level. This facilitates a really solid understanding of other team's processes, goals, and challenges and drives a sense of empathy and shared accountability


Manager, Product Management

What makes someone successful on your team?

One of our values here at Limeade is "Own It". In that spirit, I think people who have the most successful at Limeade are people who come in and really take ownership for their role and look for ways they can have an impact - not only on their team, but on the organization as a whole. Creative problem solving and collaboration goes a long way here!
