Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Collaboration is a key tenet of our day to day. Everyone is on the same page: we’re scrappy, we don’t mind working hard, and no one is too big or small to take on a task. People like working together and that's huge. It makes a difference day to day and big picture. It's hard to beat.

Kate

Sales Enablement & Training Associate

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I have been a part of different teams in my four years at Dataminr, and have seen the company and our mission from different angles. Every single department values collaboration and coordination of efforts. Everyone pitches in and gets their hands dirty, even if it means doing something that's not in their job description.

Kit

How does the company support your career growth?

Dataminr allows me to flourish and conduct business all while staying true to my personality - that is incredibly important to me. I’ve been privileged to attend conferences and represent Dataminr in high stakes meetings with Fortune 500 clients. My career has accelerated since I joined and I’m thankful to Dataminr for providing that momentum.

Chantel
