An Insider's view of Automox

What are some social events your company does?

Automox hosts company events that allow us to bond and create connections that go beyond the workplace. A great example of this is the company trip we took to Mexico. We also find other ways to bring our people together by hosting fun virtual events on Zoom, such as our online happy hours, scavenger hunts, game shows, and virtual parties.


Events Marketing Coordinator

What makes someone successful on your team?

Having clear communication and expectations makes someone successful on our team. Whether it's the person that you report to being very clear about what they need or want done or your coworker being clear in asking for help on a project, those with clear communication will be the most successful!


Sr. Customer Success Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The culture at Automox has a fundamental characteristic interwoven within every employee in the organization and that is principled entrepreneurship. You see this when teams lean into the vision and goals of the company and continue to break traditional status quo while taking risks on what some might seem unimaginable.


VP of Human Resources

What projects are you most excited about?

We've got an ambitious list of customer improvements on the horizon, one being a full rewrite of our app in Vue.js which will phase out our legacy framework. This meticulous process has forced decisions around which areas of the UI can also improve and is a big endeavor that will reduce both developer and customer friction in really rewarding ways!
