An Insider's view of Noom

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

When I first started at Noom, I’ll admit to a bit of skepticism, “Wouldn’t it be better to just receive more salary in lieu of these benefits?” In my first six months as an employee at Noom, I’ve seen (and taken advantage of) these benefits and can attest to the difference it makes on life both in and outside the office.


Data Analyst

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Noom eight years ago. It was my first real job out of college, and I’ve been fortunate to have held many positions since starting. Starting as Noom’s office administrator, I am now the product manager. Noom has supported my growth at every stage.


Product Manager

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

At Noom, rapid iteration isn’t limited to just features. For example, the way we conduct feedback. At most companies, feedback employees get is limited to performance reviews that come yearly or bi-yearly. We conduct weekly 1:1s with mentors, tech leads, and product managers—to get feedback on both our performance and help the company grow.


Growth Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

At Noom, there’s a ton of appetite for letting hard workers who are doing well in their current role expand their scope to completely new areas. When I started, my background was solely in paid digital advertising. Since then, I’ve been able to expand well beyond that scope to work on podcasts, TV, email marketing, and more.


Director of Growth Marketing
