An Insider's view of Inspire

What are some social events your company does?

As the cherry on top to our mission-driven work, Inspire's community is top-tier. A couple of my favorite events have included beautifying the city on Earth Day, awarding top talent at The Windy's, and learning how our industry can take steps to be more equitable. With every happy hour, I'm reminded how enchanting my fellow Avengers truly are.

How does the company support your career growth?

Inspire has helped me take my career to the next level, but most importantly, empowered me to find my passion! Having started my career in Member Experience and Operations, I was able to build a strong foundation of how the business works. I use that knowledge every day as a Product Manager, implementing automation and helping our business scale!
