gospotcheck
GoSpotCheck

What GoSpotCheck does: GoSpotCheck’s mobile software allows field teams to perform more efficiently and productively. Instead of writing notes on a clipboard at a jobsite and uploading them to the system later, web-based analytics and reporting dashboards allow field teams to enter data on-the-spot, and grant leadership access to overall visibility for quick decision-making. 

GoSpotCheck’s culture in one word: Humble. 

What “company culture” means at GoSpotCheck: “GoSpotCheck employs some of the smartest, most results-driven people that I have ever worked with,” said Senior QA Engineer Rebecca Mayes. “But you might never know this by working with them because they are so open to teaching what they know and learning new, better ways to do things. We routinely have complex, difficult stories in sprints that are completed with ease.”

Collaboration is a key part of the culture.”

How long have you been with the company, and what professional growth or development have you seen in that time?

“I have been with GoSpotCheck for three years,” Mayes said. “Collaboration is a key part of the culture. I was able to do a project with DevOps to move our web application release process toward continuous deployment using CircleCI, Harness and various APIs. People are encouraged to take ownership of anything they feel passionate about. During my time here, I’ve learned several new languages for test automation and received the support to speak on QA topics inside and outside of the company.”

 

webroot
Webroot

What Webroot does: Webroot’s mission is to secure businesses and individuals worldwide with cyber threat intelligence and protection over their endpoints and networks. The company, which lives under the OpenText umbrella, harnesses the cloud and utilizes AI to stop security threats in real time. 

Describe Webroot’s culture in one word: Passionate. 

What “company culture” means at Webroot: “Whether protecting customer data, preventing cyberattacks or just growing in our individual skill sets, I feel the employees of OpenText, our parent company, bring passion to what they do daily,” Senior Product Marketing Manager Holly Spiers said.

“From this passion comes strong opinions, strong work ethic and strong desire to put forth our best each and every day. 

Recently, my team needed to advise another department on a new project that would take a significant amount of time and resources. We discussed how we could best help, approach some of the areas differently given our individual experiences, and contribute meaningfully to the desired outcome. We jumped in to contribute to the greater good because we believe in what we are trying to accomplish.”

I feel the employees of OpenText, our parent company, bring passion to what they do daily.”

What’s the most interesting project you've worked on recently, and how did it help you grow professionally?

“I recently worked on launching a new service within our threat intelligence portfolio called Domain Safety Score,” Spiers said. “The Domain Safety Score addresses visibility issues created by HTTPS protocols that have led to unsafe or malicious content hiding on benign domains. This service is one that many other security providers haven’t tackled yet. 

Part of my job was talking with customers about their challenges, their needs and how they want to partner with us. These conversations are a great way for me to learn and grow in my role because they help me stay connected with our customer base and challenge me to think about how I position our products to resonate with the market.”

 

jumpcloud
JumpCloud

What JumpCloud does: With JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service platform, users can connect to their company’s systems, files, applications and networks regardless of location. To date, more than 100,000 organizations use JumpCloud, including Gofundme, E*trade and Foursquare.

Describe JumpCloud’s culture in one word: Dynamic. 

What “company culture” means at JumpCloud: “Teams are always evolving and sharing new ideas to solve complex problems quickly,” Product Manager Lindsey Bond said. “I have left meetings with engineering teams with great solutions and the next morning someone will bring an even better and efficient solution to delivering customer value. 

Every day is different. One day you might be doing customer support calls and the next day, you are doing a deep dive with an engineering team to determine the best solution and map out the execution.” 

Teams are always evolving and sharing new ideas to solve complex problems quickly.”

How long have you been with the company, and what professional growth or development have you seen in that time?

“I have been at JumpCloud for about 11 months,” Bond said. “I started as a technical product manager and quickly ramped up to a product manager with experience working from idea to execution. 

It is intense, challenging and hard work at JumpCloud. The pace is fast and you wear a lot of hats. But there is a lot of support, collaboration and mentorship to help you every step of the way. The organization is invested in your growth. Also, we get to build some pretty awesome stuff and the work is rewarding. All of this makes for a pretty solid environment for professional growth.”

 

logrhythm
LogRhythm

What LogRhythm does: LogRhythm is a security information and event management (SIEM) platform that alerts enterprises across six continents of cyber and operational risk. When companies are aware of what is happening in their networks, they can detect, prioritize and neutralize threats.

Describe LogRhythm’s culture in one word: Engaging. 

What “company culture” means at LogRhythm: “My whole team is obsessed with donuts and because of the pandemic, we have been missing our Friday donuts,” Senior Security Analyst, GRC Tyler Glotz said. “Recently, my boss sent us all a gift card to pick up donuts for a virtual donut meeting and it was so much fun. LogRhythm constantly does little things like this to make us feel like an engaged team — even when working remotely — and we are more collaborative as a result.”

Employees are expected to own their work so your accomplishments can shine.”

How long have you been with the company, and what professional growth or development have you seen in that time?

“I have been with LogRhythm for six months and I just accepted a new role that takes my career to the next level,” Glotz said. “In addition, my boss and team have given me a great sense about what my career track might look like in the future. Employees are expected to own their work so your accomplishments can shine.”
