Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have chess boards littered around the office. I'll be sure to get up throughout my day and play a couple moves, but one of the best parts of my day is how engaging and diverse the conversations I have and the connections I get to exercise are. Quovo promotes an open and accepting work environment that makes even Mondays a good day.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our tech is widely applicable across the the wealth/payments/lending/tech industries. Given the massive opportunity ahead of us, the biggest "problem" for a small but growing BizDev team is prioritizing which market/vertical/industry to tackle next. That's what makes working here so challenging and exciting - every day is different from the last!

How does the company support your career growth?

There is a widespread understanding at Quovo that everyone wants to continuing building out their skill sets to fuel career growth. Managers help facilitate this by enabling their direct reports to pursue their interests and try new things. They also make sure that you’re always a bit out of your comfort zone -- the best way to keep developing.

Marketing Associate

There are always fun events happening at Quovo! My favorite (so far) was the annual company hike. We also have regular lunch scrambles that are great for getting to know people from other teams, which is especially important since we are growing so fast. Happy hour every Friday is guaranteed to be a great time!
