An Insider's view of Bestow

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Bestow recently opened a new office in downtown Austin. The atmosphere promotes a collaborative, productive, and fun work environment. I appreciate the many touches that make the office that much more enjoyable - think standing desks, comfy couches, lots of natural light, a swag station, weekly lunches & more hot sauces than you could ever want.


Marketing Operations Associate

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We have an open collaboration approach as we take advantage of available channels of communication (not afraid of over-communicating) and provide enough empowerment to each team to drive value. We have substantial autonomy to make decisions and move fast!


Head of Strategic Finance

What makes someone successful on your team?

What makes someone successful on our team is the willingness to learn and openness to be a part of something special. Being successful requires clear and open communication, providing support, access to great resources, and diversity. I am so fortunate to be able to rely on my team for all my needs within the company.


Customer Services Specialist

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The Marketing Compliance and Operations Compliance team operates with a “run to the risk” attitude. They think of efficiencies to ensure the business understands, identify, and mitigate risks appropriately. This anticipation of what is coming around the corner attitude, continues to develop and foster trust Bestow wide.


Deputy General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer

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

Flexible work schedules allow me to get my kids ready each morning and drop them off at school. Unlimited PTO gives me the flexibility to take time off as needed without worrying about my balance. Bestow is also a family-friendly company! I was able to bring my son to the office earlier this year and our founders took time to get to know him.
