An Insider's view of Sisense

How does your team reward individual success?

Employees deserve constant recognition for their hard work and I believe in celebrating individual wins on a daily basis. My team has a Slack channel that allows us to post our wins throughout the day. On a larger scale, we have the Sisense Sizzle, a bi-weekly opportunity for the office to celebrate anniversaries, promotions, peer awards, and more!

Eden

Business Development Representative Team Lead

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration is in Sisense’s DNA. Sales helps my team grow, bringing in new projects, so we return the favor when they need references or technical advice to help close a deal. R&D helps us develop solutions, so we provide them feedback to improve our product. There’s always a new challenge, but everyone is willing to pitch in.

Max

Solutions Architect

How does the company support your career growth?

Sisense hosts a program that discusses our internal mobility process and skills development to advance your career to the next level. I expressed my interest in a role on the People team in our new San Francisco office, and now I'll be relocating to help grow the engineering team there!

Avril

Technical Recruiter

What is your vision for the company?

My vision for the company is to grow a diverse and professional community of builders who will moonshot their career and accelerate our growth. We strive to empower builders to be their best selves and do their work!

Nurit

Chief People Officer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Delivering an effective BI solution requires data modelling, product customization, and our API to meet customer requirements. With quick access to dedicated R&D mission teams and loads of experience from colleagues, I know that everyone is committed to overcoming these technical hurdles, and this directly contributes to our customers' success.
