Shane Garoutte
GM + VP, Tech Ops at Everbridge

"Tech companies that save lives are rare. A couple weeks ago, we learned that messages sent through Everbridge helped save a child. On the intrinsic value scale, that’s hard to top. That’s what I was looking for, and what many people who come to Everbridge are looking for. I wanted to be able to tell my kids I’m doing something that makes a difference." Read more.

"The military is an organization of comradery and brotherhood, and that comes with a lot of accountability. Similarly, at work it’s important to understand your role in the bigger picture and how your success is measured — then you have to hold yourself accountable to that." Read more.

Kerry McDonough
Implementation Specialist

"There’s this positive energy, this excitement, in every room I walk into. Everyone is enthusiastic and generous, not only with each other, but with customers. I’ve worked places where, when people talk with a customer, their main goal is to finish the call. Here, people want to talk with customers. I think it goes along with our work culture. Everyone’s excited to be at a young, rapidly growing company, so everyone really goes above and beyond. People truly care about what they’re doing." Read more.
