An Insider's view of Ocrolus

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office is laid back, but everyone is driven to contribute. There's a strong culture of individual ownership. Management empowers everyone to do what they do best. At the same time, teamwork is essential to success, and team cohesion is very strong. Leadership styles are non-hierarchical - the best idea wins out, no matter where it comes from.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Ocrolus offers customizable analytics, so the Engineering Team frequently collaborates with other teams to deliver on customer requests. We often work with the Sales Team to identify business opportunities, forming working groups that outline customer requests, and then execute on those goals. Collaboration is essential in a customer-first company.

VP of Engineering

What makes someone successful on your team?

Customer Success requires team members to combine a deep knowledge of the platform with superb communication and interpersonal skills. In order to grow, members must cultivate strong relationships not just with our customers, but also the departments we rely on. And success does not mean perfection - learning from mistakes is always key.

Elizabeth

Director of Customer Success

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I empower team members to be more creative by giving them a high degree of independence in how they execute. I don't like to micro-manage, and rather than providing directives, I like to ask leading questions. Letting team members organically solve for the objective, based on these questions, creates a diversity of ideas that we can draw from.

Vik

COO

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Ocrolus' appreciation of work-life balance is built into the company. Employees form their own hours; some come in at 8 and leave at 4, others come in at 11 and leave at 7. Scheduling time off, sick days, and personal chores are made easy with unlimited vacation and work from home policies. Ocrolus wants us to live our lives outside of the office.
