Sales runs in my family and I always knew it interested me, so I thought I’d give it a try. Now, I get to talk to so many different people across different industries and learn all their outlooks on the HR space.

Sr. Product Manager

I never thought about how much SQL I would learn in my role! Going into the role, I thought it was a lot more about qualitative conversations, but every product decision we make needs to be backed by data. I need to be able to show exactly why we’re doing what we’re doing

My favorite part about working on the people team is feeling like I know every single employee. I think besides your health and your family, your job is one of the most important things in your life. Being able to be a resource is really important to me.
