An Insider's view of Stack Overflow

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I'm mostly remote, and I occasionally visit the office. Being new to the office space, I didn't know what to expect. Everyone was friendly and immediately introduced themselves. The office has a relaxing atmosphere, and the office staff ensures you have everything you need.

Dee

Senior Program Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I'm an early riser, and having the flexibility to structure my day in a way that works best for me is a huge benefit. I elect to work east coast hours though I'm based in Washington State, which means my afternoons and evenings are free for hiking, rock climbing, paddleboarding, or mountain biking. It's an excellent balance that keeps me inspired.

Eric

Manager, Customer Success

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

During my time at Stack, I've been encouraged to set goals that are not only team and project-based, but also career-based. Over the past two years, Stack has supported me in taking online courses to improve my front-end, UX research, and graphic design skill sets, which have been invaluable to my career growth.

Phoebe

Product Designer

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

I love that Stack Overflow is highly collaborative. It's common to have Marketing, Product, Sales, and Engineering involved in at the earliest stages of a project. We value diverse perspectives and nearly everything is done cross-functionally. That's reflected in our internal kudos tool where nearly all of the shoutouts span multiple teams.

Khalid

Senior Vice President, Marketing & Communications

How does the company support your career growth?

Stack Overflow invests in technology, coaching, and numerous resources to enable sales reps to upskill and succeed. The servant leadership culture supports my career growth because managers create a culture of trust, foster leadership in others, and build camaraderie amongst teammates. The support lets us put customers first and grow our careers!
