An Insider's view of Faction

What are some social events your company does?

We have informal happy hours every week with the team which is a nice slow-down to the week. Lunch is provided occasionally at random or to show appreciation for employees. We have off-site events which are great to get to know other coworkers outside of your team or people that you don't work with everyday.


Storage Engineer II

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The best part about Faction is that collaboration can happen anytime: a quick chat at monthly Happy Hour, slack comms to get more immediate input, or formal meetings with stakeholders impacted by a project/change. In Sales Ops I work with people from every dept. and get to choose the best avenue to use with others based on what’s most effective.


Sales Operations Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

I've been very fortunate to be on one of the smaller teams here at Faction, so I get plenty of one-on-one time with my manager. During my 2+ years at Faction, I have always been encouraged to keep learning new skills to make me a better marketer. That includes certifications, classes, and attending conferences.


Digital & Event Marketing Specialist

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

Faction’s Deployment Team continually fosters new ideas, focused on the customer experience. We are persistent in our efforts toward improving the speed and accuracy of our service deployments.
