Pearl Shu
Sr. Director, Business Operations

I would say the best part about working at Namely is the culture. I came from a very corporate environment where people weren’t as open and friendly. From my first day at Namely, people were so welcoming and helpful. People are always willing to sit down and teach you something new.

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. 

Rhiannon Lococo
Rhiannon Lococo
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.
