How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Being in Talent Acquisition provides me the unique opportunity to work with each of the teams.

Director of Global Talent Acquisition

What are some things you learned at the company?

So many things… The world of mobile messaging is bigger and more complex than anyone can imagine. It has a language all its own. Our customers are doing amazing things and my colleagues are constant inspirations. I’ve learned what it is like to have strong collaborative leadership who value their people.


Senior UX Designer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One of the best parts of OpenMarket is that we are small enough to allow teams to drive change and make a difference. Within the finance team, we typically have a handful of cross functional initiatives going at any given time. Overall we are constantly looking to innovate how we work and what we deliver as an organization.


Director of Finance

What’s the vibe like in the office?

OpenMarket is flexible about working remotely but I like coming into the office anyway! It's nice having teammates nearby to help if you get stuck, and there's always a quiet corner if you need to focus. It's a really welcoming environment outside of work too - you can always find people chatting in the kitchen, playing ping pong, or getting lunch.
