An Insider's view of Flowhub

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe at Flowhub is laid back, fun, but aggressive when it comes to solving problems. We love tech, we love cannabis, but most of all we love coming into work each day and tackling issues with like minded individuals. A short list of things we enjoy: Coffee, kombucha, board games, hacky sack, life size cutouts of Luke and Chewie, Reddit.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As an Account Manager within an Agile Software Development Framework, my role is to be the client advocate within Flowhub. I work closely with the Deployment, Product Support, Sales, and Engineering Departments to communicate future development plans, gather customer feedback, and use this customer feedback to build better customer solutions.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

A year ago I started off in an entry level position on the Product Support team. Today, I manage the deployment process for all clients. Because of the support from the management and their confidence in me, I know that I have a unique opportunity to grow with the company and tackle more challenging roles in my career as the company grows.

I operate with an open door policy. I want to be accessible when employees need me, whether it's via email, slack or in person. I try to be a resource to help each person succeed within their position, and the company. And if there are questions or requests, I do my best to respond promptly.
