An Insider's view of name.com

What's something quirky about your company?

Retros are a necessary but redundant part of the sprint, so we put a unique spin on every one. We've had meetings inspired by Hot Ones (team members took a bite of a spicy chicken wing before sharing their thoughts) and Bird Box (blindfolded teammates worked with partners to share feedback). Challenges like these inject fun into a routine process.

Joseph

Senior Manager - Software Engineering

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Our teams are highly collaborative. We work hard and expect a lot from each other. We keep things fun and use a lot of team building activities and sprinkle humor into everything we can. You never know what GIF or joke is going to pop up. That motivates me to keep up to speed on all of our communication channels. There is always a fun surprise!

Ilima

Customer Service Team Lead

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started in Customer Support and quickly moved into Product Management. Over the past 5 years, I have grown in my role while learning about user experience, product management, and leadership. I am currently a Senior Product Manager and head the Product team. The opportunities I have found at Name.com have changed my life.

Angela

Senior Product Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We have a relatively small office with an open floor plan. My pod is surrounded by marketing, product, engineering, and operations, so I'm always accessible. We also have monthly town hall style meetings to discuss everything going on in the company and get open feedback and questions.

Dave

Vice President, Registrar

What does your typical day look like?

Each day is unique and full of wonder. You come in every day wondering which dog will visit, what fun new play on words marketing has come up with, or what kind of new loop our customers are going to throw us through. You really do learn something new every day. Everyone's willing to help, and it's amazing how the teams all work together.
