How does the company support your career growth?

Growth opportunities within BombBomb are exceptional. For myself, I have felt tremendous support from leadership and my peers as I’ve grown throughout the years. From attentive one-on-ones, to group training sessions, BombBomb provides a great platform to grow. The company can push hard at times, but I’ve never felt alone during times of struggle.

What is your vision for the company?

We’re on a mission to rehumanize how you communicate. Most business communication is done through outdated, plain-text email. BombBomb changes that by making it easy to record, send, and track videos with the tools you use every day. If you want to help us and our customers rehumanize the planet, BombBomb would love to have you.

Rebecca

VP, Partnerships

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

Work-life balance is something that is taken very seriously among my team here at BombBomb. I am encouraged often to not burn myself out and to find my own pace. Leadership is aware of how important mental health is and how it drastically improves happiness in the workplace. At BombBomb, your family always comes first.
