An Insider's view of Nylas

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Chaotic schedules and intense workloads come with the territory of a startup, but at Nylas "healthy work-life balance" is more than a catchy buzz phrase. After 6 months, it's mandatory that employees take 2 weeks off. On top of unlimited PTO, we also have 14 paid company holidays. Overall, I'd say work-life balance at Nylas is hard to beat!

Natasha

People Operations Coordinator

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Customer Success is a collaborative, cross-functional role at any organization. At Nylas, I've had the opportunity and pleasure to collaborate with Product, Marketing, Onboarding and Support. There's always a challenge to take the lead on, and something new to learn from your colleagues with every opportunity

Angie

Customer Success Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Nylas has introduced me to large scale distributed systems and supported my career aspirations by allowing me to pursue a career on the sales side despite being hired and working as an engineer. We have hired experts across the entire organization that I learn from every day, the easy way.

Jonny

Senior Sales Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

My vision is to transform the analog nature of communication to actionable, automated workflows, and grow our company to be the best we can be by hiring the best employees.

David

Sr. VP of Engineering

What are some social events your company does?

Nylas is a remote-first, distributed company, so a lot of our social events take place virtually. We have yoga practice on Mondays, and Book Club on Wednesdays. On Fridays we mix it up with happy hours: : we'll have a live performance, chat via avatars in a Gather.town space, or watch a nerdy show together at the e(N)dweek Nerdout!
