An Insider's view of Stackline

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

Work-life balance at Stackline is the best that I have experienced in my career. My team is extremely collaborative and we work to help complete each other's tasks to meet deadlines and ensure we're not working late. Taking vacation is encouraged, not frowned upon, to ensure we all have our time away to rest.

David

Associate Account Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

Stackline Trends, our newest product that provides a comprehensive view of the consumer brands and topics shaping retail. The data behind it took years to create and perfect, and it's some of the most rewarding work I have done at Stackline.

How does the company support your career growth?

The standard for high performance and the relentless drive for excellence that you see among the people at Stackline always inspires me to be a better version of myself. Stackline provides me the opportunity to take on more responsibilities, while giving me guidance and support on how to excel my role at Stackline.
