An Insider's view of Abacus Insights

What are some social events your company does?

In the before times, we had a great track record of fun social events along "normal" lines (eg. dinner and drinks, battle of the bands, axe throwing). Since going fully remote, we've had to get creative, finding success with semi-annual month-long themed engagements, a monthly surprise album listening club, and daily banter over morning coffee.


Director of DevOps

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

My job requires that I partner with many people across the company, from Engineering and Product Management to Legal and UX, and I’m consistently impressed by everyone’s generosity with their time, customer-focus, and willingness to partner with me.


Manager of Technical Documentation and Training

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since joining Abacus, I've been trusted and given the necessary tools to do my job and help grow this amazing company. I've been exposed to so many different sectors of the business and my experience learning and growing from my colleagues has been unmatched. It’s nice to be a part of something that I know is going to help people in the long run.


Lead UX Designer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We are a small but growing company, we have beads working remotely across the country. Remaining connected to the team is critical and I use as many of the existing tools as possible - email, Slack, Zoom, Confluence - the list goes on. It is more likely that I will access my team!
