An Insider's view of Namely

What are some social events your company does?

The start-up tech culture at Namely was one of the reasons that initially attracted me to the company and to pursue the opportunity! There are so many social events throughout the year - monthly Team and Company All Hands, team outings and dinners, donations and drives, an annual Holiday Party, sports leagues, and more!

Paige

Manager, Talent Acquisition

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Our job is to provide automation and peace of mind so that our clients can focus on what they do best, growing their business. The biggest technical challenge we face on a daily basis is translating technical jargon to a more digestible, layman English. Namely provides all of the tools to help clients understand the complex, technical side of HR.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since joining Namely, I've had great managers who helped me identify my career goals & a path to reach each milestone. After starting in an entry-level Implementation role, I've been promoted to Brokerage Management, with the opportunity to create new teams. I continue to learn & develop skills crucial to my professional advancement.

Taryn

Brokerage Operations Manager

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Work hard play hard! We don't work here because it’s easy, we work here because we want to solve challenging problems and make a difference both within Namely and to our clients. The people here are always willing to go above and beyond for their teammates and take a moment to recognize a job well done.
