An Insider's view of KPA

What's something quirky about your company?

We have such a diverse workforce! From the Sales team to QA Analysts; people who've spent their careers in auto dealerships to new Environmental Health and Safety graduates; from the steel industry in PA to compliance software in OK to auditors on both coasts and everywhere in between. I'm so pumped to work with so many different kinds of people!


Human Resources Specialist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The SDR team is at the center of outreach and client engagement in many cases. I personally love to collaborate with all teams when asked because in the end we all have the same vision. Stepping outside that comfy little box is the only way to successfully schedule appointments, create opportunities and close deals.


Sales Development Representative

What makes someone successful on your team?

Being in a client facing role, holding a professional & positive demeanor is crucial to one’s success. The ability to empathize with varying clients’ needs & changing communication styles are also essential. Most importantly though, is relationship building. It is our job to instill trust with our clients & once this happens, the rest is simple.


Senior Implementation Manager

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

The Sales Development function at KPA is a trusted and well-respected voice.
