An Insider's view of SmartAsset

What are some social events your company does?

We have a happy hour in the office every Friday at 4, which is such a nice way to end each week a little early and hang out with your colleagues. We also get to do awesome team events each quarter if we hit our goals. My team has done things like ax throwing, pasta making classes, fancy dinners, and go-karting!

Amanda

Director of Paid Acquisition

The tech team is always implementing the most up to date technologies for the project ranging from telephony, state machines, front and back end frameworks, etc.

Brett

Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

True to one of our core Smart Values of being data driven, everyone on the team must know their data inside and out. Each individual on the team uses data to not only tell a story of what is happening, but also to gain insights into new possibilities. Some of the biggest opportunities the team pursues are the result of being data driven.

Mihir

Vice President of Business Development

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

We have a real "roll up a chair and chat" kind of culture, whether it is problem solving or just checking in. I sit in a very visible spot in the office with a small stool next to my desk for impromptu chats and catch ups.

Suzanne

SVP Sales

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office is super collaborative and collegial. People are hard-working and focused but still know how to enjoy themselves. Everyone is always willing to lend a hand at any time or collaborate on new initiatives.
