An Insider's view of Greenhouse Software

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe of the Denver office is pretty laid back. People move to Colorado for a reason, to enjoy the beauty of the Rocky Mountains. In the office we have mountain bikers, hikers, skiers, climbers, and people who just like drinking beer outside. We try to plan events that beer drinkers, non-beer drinkers, outdoorsy people non outdoorsy people.

What does your typical day look like?

There is a lot of freedom to move around, so if you don’t want to be at your desk all day, you can find a spot in the common area, snag a phone booth, or sit down at an open table with other teammates. I greatly appreciate the encouragement from management to submit my own ideas for making our office comfortable and enjoyable for everyone.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Greenhouse as a Talent Acquisition Coordinator. Being new to the company, my goals were to advance my career and learn from the seasoned leaders on my team. Within the past year, I have strategically partnered with numerous cross-functional leaders, sharpened my recruiting skillset, and have been promoted to Talent Acquisition Manager.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

It is very evident that Greenhouse takes work-life balance seriously and doesn't just talk about it but truly encourages taking time for yourself. From the top-down (like, seriously… CEO level) this is not only encouraged but truly engrained in the culture –– with a time-off policy to support it.
