An Insider's view of Bluecore

What's something quirky about your company?

We are a close-knit team, but as Bluecore grows it can be difficult to get to know peers that we don't work with directly. To make sure we get to know people we participate in #donutcore via slack. It pairs people together to meet for coffee, exploring the neighborhood, or yes even getting a donut!

Tara

HR Business Partner

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started as an independent contributor in Sales, was given the opportunity to become a Director of Customer Success and have since been promoted to VP! I couldn't miss the opportunity to extend my reach and get back to the foundation I had built my career on: customer care. Not many companies foster this type of growth so quickly!

Dana

Vice President of Customer Success

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Our people team manages Bluecore University, instructor‑led training courses that range in depth from one hour to half day sessions on subjects like Growth Mindset, leadership frameworks, and project management skills. In our Town Halls and quarterly off-sites leadership educates employees on state of the business and focus on innovation.

The biggest problem my team is solving is creating infrastructure that’s reliable, cost-efficient, secure, long-term oriented and easy to navigate by our engineers. We are improving our metrics-driven approach to understand and make informed decisions about the parts of our codebase and infrastructure that could drive down costs
