An Insider's view of VTS

What are some social events your company does?

I spend a large part of my week at work, so being around great people is very important. The vibe at VTS is very friendly, and there are plenty of opportunities to share knowledge and to socialize, including brown bags, catered lunches, happy hours, team outings, and other events.

Rafael

Staff Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I collaborate with other teams on the company when there’s a piece of code that I’m working on that relates to another topic or domain expertise, I’ll ask for help. Everyone’s really into the idea of collaborating because we know that it’ll create a better product!

Anisha

How does the company support your career growth?

VTS has a culture of constant learning--the most seasoned members of our team are still humble and curious. I’m challenged daily to keep reading, trying new things, and sharing my experience. VTS brings in experts to keep us learning, and I’m given coaching and access to resources that help me grow. I feel like everyone here wants me to succeed.

Chrissy

Director, Product

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

A creative environment is critical for great marketing! The main way I try to do this is encourage everyone's ideas - and recognize that while I may have more experience, this is the first time for all of us at this company, so my job is to guide the team towards great ideas, not be the source of all of them.

Amy

Chief Marketing Officer

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

This year we completely redesigned our product strategy process. Several cross-functional forums provide an avenue where anyone in the company can suggest projects and influence prioritization. Feedback on the new process has been incredibly positive. It’s helping to keep the whole company aligned on our most promising and impactful initiatives.

Niall
