An Insider's view of Botify

What are some social events your company does?

The great thing about Botify is that you actually want to spend time with your colleagues outside of working hours. Pre COVID, the company would host happy hours, an annual holiday dinner and karaoke night, participate in sports leagues like soccer and kickball, and we even had a global summit in Barcelona to meet our UK and French counterparts.

Customer Success Associate

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

With offices around the world, there is not one defined method to collaborate. Our Execs provides us with many opportunities to connect with our global peers. We’ve had the luxury to meet in Barcelona for a company retreat, monthly fireside discussions and recurring meetings to share the direction of the business.

Onboarding Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Adaptability, Grit, and Kindness

Ryan Ambler

Head of Business Development

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

Collaborating & working with every employee, at all level is what makes Botify a great place to work. Collaboration comes in many forms so hopping on a call with the Sales team to help a new client signing, working with the Customer Success team on renewals or our People team in creating the most initiatives are ways I work closely with our teams.

Adrien Menard


What are some social events your company does?

We do a lot of in-person and virtual social events to keep our culture and collaboration strong! Part of my job is creating these events and I love seeing Botifyers enjoy spending time together. My favorite social events for this year have been our Summer Field Day, our Series C Rooftop Celebration, and our virtual Drag Bingo during Pride Month.
