What makes someone successful on your team?

Being coachable and having a positive attitude are the two most important factors. Asking for help shows that you're willing to learn. Every day is a learning experience for me and I love it! As with anything in life, it's important to have a positive energy and show up with a winning attitude.

What is your vision for the company?

Being a Smartling means being part of a community of incredibly smart and driven individuals, but also being part of a tribe that really enjoys each others company. We get together at least once a month for anything from bowling to company picnics to baseball outings. I like to describe our culture as "work hard, play hard".

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.
