An Insider's view of SambaSafety

What are some social events your company does?

Sambas implemented a culture team with the intention of including all departments and offices in events, volunteer opportunities, philanthropic activities and events for employees to get to know each other during and outside of business hours. This has truly created a fun environment by hosting parties, picnics, ice cream socials, and much more!

Lindsay Davis

Sales Enablement Specialist

What does your typical day look like?

There is a great work/life balance at Samba. Our organization makes an impact to businesses and their employees so we’re usually available, however being in the office 24/7 is not what Samba is about. The high level of trust that we’re all here to work hard and be the best trumps clocking in and working typical 9-5 hours.

Abby Abreu

Senior Account Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I didn’t have any Saas experience when I started at Samba. I came in as an SDR last year and have since been promoted to an Account Executive, Emerging Markets. The team was paramount in my growth, because I knew I could lean on them and learn. Everyone here is incredibly selfless and is willing to drop whatever they are doing to help you succeed.

Connor Fuqua

Account Executive, Emerging Markets

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Samba is full of collaborative, highly engaged, driven people continuously looking to outperform. We harness and direct this energy towards intelligent risk-taking leading to greater innovation. Our program encourages dialogue on the vast amount of ideas surfaced by our teams. Selected ideas are assigned to a team for completion.

Kevin Lawlor

VP of Human Resources

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The environment we create is one of experimentation, where anyone can bring anything to the table as a solution to accomplish a task to enhance and grow our product. No idea is too mundane or question too simple to be discussed and used to grow our people as well as our product offering.
