An Insider's view of Collibra

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

There are several things in our employee benefits that I need such as remote work and flexible schedule. I'll go to the gym in the morning, then I’ll start late. Sometimes I work late, sometimes I work on Saturday, but then on Monday, I won’t work. I can maintain that flexibility as long as I deliver my work.

Laura

Sales Engineering Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Our customers need a product that delivers a lot of capability, and their needs demand constant product development. I love that we invest to make it happen. I’ve established structures within the sales team that help streamline the process for all sides of the relationship. I just try to be very efficient with my time and my colleagues’ time.

Teba

Sales Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I feel like my sense of ownership and initiative have been well-rewarded with new projects that have allowed me to build upon my skillset. I want to learn, and I feel like it’s known and supported by my management.

Haydee

Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The culture has typically been open. It has certainly been kind. I think that those are the two big ones for me, which is just information sharing and openness in a way that's positive. If we have something that we can course correct on, share it, but do it in a way that’s positive or proactive.

Ryan

Area Vice President

How does your team reward individual success?

I never thought I’d be teaching a team that’s already been with Collibra for a year. It’s phenomenal. My manager asked me to show my emails and my messaging to the team of 15. There is a lot to learn here, and I had only been here for two months.
