An Insider's view of TeamSnap

What's something quirky about your company?

Even though TeamSnap is primarily remote, you quickly make fast friendships here. We have TONS of Slack channels to bond over topics like dogs, cooking, or the latest series on Netflix. Joining TeamSnap means you can pretty much guarantee you'll add another best friend to your life.

Marika

Marketing Specialist

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We deal with a variety of technical challenges related to our product and user experience. One example was when we built a new chat feature in the Google Cloud ecosystem and users informed us that they were unable to clear their unread message badge count. We experimented with Google Pubsub to solve this issue, which worked!

Peter

Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Fearless curiosity and a strong sense of ownership. We work together to agree on what needs to be done; the how (or when) isn’t as important. We don’t do a lot of transactional work on this team, and the impact of our work (positive or negative) ripples through the entire company to our customers.

Alex

Staff Site Reliability Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

My vision for TeamSnap is to become the #1 software platform in youth and amateur sports,

Peter

CEO

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

As someone who manages our user education content, I really appreciate the high level of flexibility and trust at TeamSnap. I’m able to slot my work hours around all the things I need to get done throughout the day as a single parent, and have been able to easily integrate my work and life together.
