An Insider's view of Hydrant

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Goofy and productive - we get to business but rarely pass up an opportunity for a laugh. Beyond that, we're supportive - we step outside of our swimming lane to help our co-workers on projects and development where possible.


Customer Experience Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

Apart from constantly analyzing and improving our existing processes, I am very excited to explore, plan and implement sustainability into our supply chain. To have a minimal environmental footprint is a necessity today and solving how that applies to Hydrant is very exciting.


Head of Operations

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our most successful team members are analytical, curious, and always strive to have clear alignment with stakeholders and deliverables while being conscious of deadlines.



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

We sit in the office as one team, no closed doors! We also have a culture built on 2 way feedback, so I'm getting feedback from the team as much as I'm giving it, often through scheduled one-on-one meetings. At our current team size, it's also pretty easy to come grab me or message me if you want to discuss anything.
