An Insider's view of Smartling

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

My managers and colleagues alike share immense respect for work/life boundaries. As part of a remote organization with teams across different time zones, trust and flexibility are the norm. And when it comes time for a vacation, I know that my team has processes in place to ensure I can truly log off!

Kelly

Sr. Customer Success Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The great thing about collaboration at Smartling is that teams are really focused on outcomes and measured deliverables. This helps everyone know what they need to do to support one another and get positive results.

Andrew

Associate Director, Language Services

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned so much at Smartling, but I would say learning about different technical integrations into complex tech stacks has been the most impactful. Having had a very basic understanding, this knowledge has been helpful in growing and closing opportunities! We have an amazing team of Solution Engineers who are always ready and willing to help.

Jose

Sr. Account Executive

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Simply by focusing on outcomes over outputs. Defining a goal and giving each team member the autonomy to approach it in their own way encourages experimentation, taking risks, and thinking outside of the box.

Grace

Sr. Director, Product

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

In our new remote work reality, I make sure to schedule regular check-ins with my team members. I also stay close to Slack where they can reach out at any point. Knowing when to switch from written communication to a call becomes also essential to avoid misunderstanding.

Valerie

Senior Director, Language Services
