An Insider's view of Collibra

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There are a lot of options for when I want to be “distracted” from my work. The office has an amazing mix of personalities that blend together very well. It’s great to have exposure to the individuals who started this company, as well as the rest of the c-suite employees. The office is collaborative so it feels like your opinion actually matters.

Akil

Sales Development Representative

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-team collaboration within Collibra is integral to my position. As an FP&A Analyst, I act as a financial advisor to co-workers across different teams to ensure business decisions and their corresponding impacts help achieve not just Collibra’s business goals, but Collibra’s financial goals as well.

Billy

FP&A Analyst

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Back in the summer of 2016, I started working at Collibra as an SDR. Fast-forward just two years, and not only have I had the opportunity to create a new account executive role, but I'm now the global sales leader for that team! Collibra is growing fast and there are loads of exciting opportunities available to those who want to work for it.

Jonelle

Manager, Junior Account Executives

What makes someone successful on your team?

The customer advisory management team looks for people who are determined to drive value for our customers. They’re people who build strong relationships, identify challenges, and love to find solutions. It’s why our customers love us!

Alexis

Manager, Customer Advisory Management
