An Insider's view of Prove

What are some social events your company does?

I love participating in social events at Prove and there are many opportunities to gather socially – from team and office happy hours to our annual holiday. The Chicago office recently took a dinner cruise on the Chicago River! There is also a book club that meets regularly and – my favorite – a Slack channel to share pictures of our pets.

Jennie

Manager, Production Operations

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I'm constantly challenged to think outside the box. The complexity of our products creates an environment where the projects I'm working on require that I switch between several skills from documentation to data analysis and research. It couldn't get any better! I have a wider and deeper understanding of how a tech company operates.

Moses

Product Owner

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I provide direction when needed, instill self-direction, and team collaboration. If the team identifies a gap in our product I ask the team how they would solve the problem. This enables them to take the initiative and brainstorm. However at the end of the day, we are a team, and team culture and innovation is what drives creativity.

Crystal

Director of Product Management

What makes someone successful on your team?

To be successful on our team you have to be willing to learn, have passion, and be a team player. I'm never afraid of asking questions because my teammates are so supportive and willing to help. We are all working towards a common goal, helping provide the best security and authentication for our clients!
