An Insider's view of Bodhala

How does your team reward individual success?

We celebrate successes - big and small - through public recognition, expanded responsibilities, compensation and promotions.

We are small enough to celebrate every win. That is a pillar to our culture that will remain, as we continue to rapidly grow.


Head Of Sales

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We are developing a technology platform that is addressing one of the largest untapped markets out there. The way the legal industry works is broken, and we are enabling data-driven decision making by bringing together best-in-class technology with a team of people who are the best at what they do.


Director Of Product

What does career growth look like on your team?

Given we are such a small team with no shortage of work, people are brought in to accomplish their core function, but there is opportunity to take on so much more.

When we think about hiring, we look at where our existing team's interests and skills are, then hire to complement that. We want people to be constantly stretching and growing!


Chief Of Staff

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We have such a tremendous opportunity ahead of us and such a strong team. We look to our talented and diverse team to come to the best conclusion. Sometimes we do "moonshot" exercises at company retreats and other times we throw around ideas at the water cooler.

Innovation runs through our company at every level.



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

Being part of a startup means you have to put in hours to make the company successful. That being said, there's never been an issue with taking the time you need off for personal reasons, as long as the work is getting done. Nobody wants to get burnt out from work, so we're encouraged to take time to recharge and come back refreshed.
