How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We foster transparency, which allows our teams the freedom and responsibility to pursue our vision in a self-driven way. Everyone is trusted as an owner, we’re all responsible for thinking and acting in the long-term interest of the company. At Smartly.io, nothing is someone else’s problem — we’re all doers with an entrepreneurial attitude.

What projects are you most excited about?

Automating the whole online customer acquisition funnel. We’ve only scratched the surface in solving problems for paid social marketing teams, and we’ve already pinpointed many processes in design and business intelligence which we could automate, like video creation processes, or reporting and attribution across
platforms.
