 You’re a technical writer that can also read code. You know about software development and understand that the documentation that accompanies code is just as important as the code itself. You learned that, while challenging, writing meaningful developer content is powerful and rewarding. 

More than just content you know the details matter. You know that even though developers are technically minded individuals, they still enjoy well written, concise, straightforward documentation. You have a preference for the Oxford Comma and pride yourself on writing beautifully constructed developer education material.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

This office is fun, driven, smart, and happy. We’re proud of each other, our product, and how we work hard to make our customers happy and cared for.

Michael

What projects are you most excited about?

Right now, I’m most excited about optimizing our enablement programs at Zoom. As our team grows, it’s vital that we scale our programs and processes thoughtfully to ensure every Zoomie feels comfortable, confident, and equipped for success in their role. Watching individuals evolve as Zoom experts is both fun and fulfilling!

Ashley

Customer Success Operations Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

In my year and a half at Zoom, I’ve had the privilege of moving from a BDR, to a Team Lead, to an Account Executive. Through each step, my manager was transparent, approachable & committed to my own professional growth. Zoom recognizes that not all career paths are the same, and each manager takes an individual approach to identify what drives you.

Nicole

Small/Medium Business Account Executive

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

One of the things I love about Zoom is the trust they have in me that allows me to be creative. Being a leader at Zoom I'm able to watch my team collaborate and teach each other. For me that's creativity. People with different ideas and experiences working together with one purpose. By empowering people to be creative you open the door to success.

Tuckett

SMB VAST Sales Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Teamwork is in our day to day, not only with other BDRs, where each can provide different points of view in a situation, but also with the Account Executives that are an indispensable guide to succeed when looking for new clients.

Sandra

Business Development Rep.
