An Insider's view of Skupos

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Life at Skupos provides employees with a balance of being relaxed and autonomous, but we all work really hard & go above and beyond to get our jobs done. If you need a breather, it's cool to take a break and play some ping pong. There is also a solid sense of camaraderie & collaboration throughout the office that extends across the different teams.


Integration Specialist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As the Salesforce Admin, I am constantly working with all departments across the company. Collaborating w/ this many people requires that I am easily accessible to both SF & Denver offices. To ensure this happens, I set up weekly meetings w/ each team to discuss their needs, as well as a meeting for everyone to attend so we're all on the same page.


Salesforce Admin

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

The focus on "Learn Fast" at Skupos has given me so many opportunities to advance and understand the industry in an incredibly short period of time. I started with Skupos as a Customer Service Representative and I've moved all the way up to Team Lead for Customer Success. A true Cinderella story!


Team Lead, Customer Success

What projects are you most excited about?

I am excited to lead a workshop focusing on growing the skills of our management team. Skupos is actively investing in the learning and development of our employees and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this initiative. This project has helped me stretch beyond my comfort zone with endless support from my leaders and team.
