An Insider's view of Ibotta

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We can bring our full selves to work each day, including dressing and presenting ourselves how we feel most comfortable. The energy is very collaborative and as you walk around, you'll see a lot of people putting their heads together on something while someone else might be in a quiet work booth to focus in on something specific.

The best part about Ibotta is the people that work here. It's humbling to be able to work with such talented and experienced team members who are all working towards a collective mission. I've been able to learn so much from my colleagues both on a professional and personal level, and they are 100% the reason that I enjoy coming into work everyday.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I wouldn't have gotten the opportunity and encouragement to transition from sales to analytics at any other company.

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Weekly 1:1s with all of my direct reports and minimum monthly coffee/lunch/walk with anyone who is indirect. We also leverage "Donut" (an app through Slack) across the Marketing team. This promotes rapport building and open conversations.
