An Insider's view of Sovrn

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

Our Reliability Team works incredibly hard, however….personal life comes first. One of the reasons is that we have incredible managers that realize that we are humans. We work hard but when we are off, we are off!

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Great ideas can come from everybody with the right support and space. To this end, we hold an Innovation Week quarterly for all engineers.

We encourage creativity with a collaborative environment, POCs during planning phases, and aggressively maintaining tech debt.
