An Insider's view of SambaSafety

What's something quirky about your company?

When you’re here you’re family. Olive Garden stole that from Samba Safety. Instead of endless bread sticks there’s endless career development, opportunity & the chance to be part of something much bigger than yourself. To wake up everyday & sell something you believe in is rare. To do it with people you consider friends & mentors is a blessing.

John Russell

Account Executive, Transportation

What does your typical day look like?

There is a great work/life balance at Samba. Our organization makes an impact to businesses and their employees so we’re usually available, however being in the office 24/7 is not what Samba is about. The high level of trust that we’re all here to work hard and be the best trumps clocking in and working typical 9-5 hours.

Abby Abreu

Senior Account Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

I started a couple months ago, and was extremely impressed, not only with how fast they came up with a new program to onboard people from home but also with the quality of the training and how impactful it was to a new person to the organization. The people and culture are amazing and II am very happy with my decision to come work for this company

Kyle McGaw

Account Executive, Mid-Market

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Samba is full of collaborative, highly engaged, driven people continuously looking to outperform. We harness and direct this energy towards intelligent risk-taking leading to greater innovation. Our program encourages dialogue on the vast amount of ideas surfaced by our teams. Selected ideas are assigned to a team for completion.

Kevin Lawlor

VP of Human Resources

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The environment we create is one of experimentation, where anyone can bring anything to the table as a solution to accomplish a task to enhance and grow our product. No idea is too mundane or question too simple to be discussed and used to grow our people as well as our product offering.
