We have such a diverse workforce! From the Sales team to QA Analysts; people who've spent their careers in auto dealerships to new Environmental Health and Safety graduates; from the steel industry in PA to compliance software in OK to auditors on both coasts and everywhere in between. I'm so pumped to work with so many different kinds of people!

I love how enthusiastic other teams and departments are to work together. Everyone in the organization is willing to lend a helping hand whether it’s through a quick ping, email, or a video call. It’s energizing being at a company that feels like one big team!


Senior Financial Analyst

What makes someone successful on your team?

Being in a client facing role, holding a professional & positive demeanor is crucial to one’s success. The ability to empathize with varying clients’ needs & changing communication styles are also essential. Most importantly though, is relationship building. It is our job to instill trust with our clients & once this happens, the rest is simple.
