An Insider's view of Convercent

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Convercent is a highly collaborative environment. I absolutely love that I can be in the kitchen, bathroom, or walking around and I will bump into people from all different departments and have really meaningful conversations. I really enjoy the people I work and interact with everyday!


Manager, Event Marketing

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The process of ingesting data from our customers can be difficult and lengthy. Team Massive is working on a new implementation that can import multiple large files simultaneously and at a faster rate.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

It's taken me down a path I would've never expected when I joined the team as an SDR five years ago. But that's one of the great things about Convercent. People have the opportunity and are supported to take their careers in so many different directions.
