An Insider's view of TrainingPeaks (A Peaksware Company)

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Many companies have their principles hanging on the wall, never to use them in practice. I'm proud to work for a company that lives their principles, consistently using them to make decisions for the customer, employee and business.


Director, Sales

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Product management is a messy job. I’ve learned that there’s always going to be some doubt in the back of my mind, and I can use that doubt to fuel me to continue to learn, ask questions and work more closely with my team, rather than letting it cripple me.


Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

One of our top values is to provide employees with the opportunities & tools to help them grow. Regular check-ins on personal growth, opportunities to learn about other positions within the company & resources to help each employee move in the direction they are most interested in, are a few examples of the dedication to supporting longterm growth.


VP, Customer Team

What’s the vibe like in the office?

People are always super positive and energetic. You might be collaborating on a project with your team one minute, doing push-ups together the next, and wrapping up the day with a beer and a bike ride. It's awesome!
