An Insider's view of Fivetran

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

"Our work-life balance is less about "balance" and more about flowing seamlessly between the two. Everyone understands that to be our best in the workplace we have to embrace our true selves. That means a bike ride or yoga in the middle of the day is a priority so we can deliver great results for our customers, company, colleagues, and ourselves."

Mike Faber

Sales Leader Enablement Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

" I collaborated with other departments on a weekly if not daily basis. Our core value of One Team One Dream ensures that everyone makes decisions that are in the best interest of the organization."

Andrew Sutherland

Business Development Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

Fivetran is a true rocketship. I didn’t realize what an incredible company I was joining, so I feel lucky to be here every day. Everyone loves Fivetran whether they’re a customer or they’re an employee. We all strive toward a common goal of making Fivetran the best, and we’ve done a pretty amazing job at it.
