An Insider's view of Procare Solutions

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The Denver office has a professional yet laid back vibe. I think we really have a "get business done while having fun" mentality. It truly feels like a team effort regardless of which department you work in - we succeed together.


Human Resources

What projects are you most excited about?

Enterprise Learning! I'm very excited to offer best in class learning experiences for all kinds of topics as part of our employee engagement and professional development plan.


Learning and Development

How does the company support your career growth?

I’m pretty new to the marketing world. I started in the MDR role a year ago. I was able to learn the basics not only in marketing but of the company in general. More recently, I’ve moved into a demand generation specialist role which I’m so excited about. Now, I have the opportunity to learn another side of marketing and dive deeper into it.



How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Two of our values are Elevate One Another and Respect all Perspectives, and being accessible is key. In addition to welcoming a stop by my office or message via Slack or email, my calendar is open for employees to schedule time to talk, collaborate on an idea, share an opportunity for process improvement, or get my perspective on their career goal



What are some things you learned at the company?

Since joining, I have gained an understanding for how vital a quality platform is to an efficient childcare center. As my knowledge of our products has grown, it has given me pride in selling a truly helpful and essential product.
