Kaitlyn

Human Resources Administrator

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Small cross-functional teams form to tackle projects and initiatives. By working together with different teams and experiences, not only can we divide the work across included departments, it also allows us to look at a problem through multiple lenses. This approach helps to ensure that our solution is well suited for the needs we intend to address

Andrew

Data Analyst

What are some things you learned at the company?

One of the larger challenges our accounting team is trying to solve is streamlining the overall financial ecosystem by implementing consistent processes, policies and procedures among all brands. It's an exciting challenge to solve, incorporating larger projects within our day to day accounting tasks and responsibilities.

Jessica

Assistant Controller

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

Working in CA with a team in CO, one would think our distance puts a strain on accessibility, but with the amount of communication channels we have, being available to the team is second nature. Peaksware is centered on trust and accountability. Through this model, accessibility and collaboration is seamless regardless of the distance.
