How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Kustomer’s philosophy on open communication makes cross-team collaboration not only easy, but inviting. Whether it’s Slacking a technical question to our product team mid-demo, getting on a Zoom call with Sales Ops to strategize on new tools, or working with Marketing to create the perfect product messaging, there are no siloed teams here.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Kustomer gives all members of the Krew the ability to be successful. It all starts with the company culture of teamwork and innovation. On the Solutions Consulting team, we foster a team work-first and collaborative approach. This includes jumping in when another SC team member needs help or to bounce an idea of another team member.

We host bi-monthly all hands with the entire team to share business updates, celebrate new hires/individual milestones, and hear from our Krew members.
