An Insider's view of Tulip

What projects are you most excited about?

I feel a great sense of satisfaction to contribute in shaping the machine monitoring experience for our users which in turn helps them be better at their jobs. I like how everyone in the company is very approachable, and Tulip's culture of promoting interdisciplinary learning.


Product Designer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Two key attributes that will lead to success are creative problem solving and communication. Our role involves working with customers across many different industries to quickly identify and deliver effective solutions that have a lasting impact. We're also responsible for ensuring customer feedback appropriately drives evolution of the platform.


Costumer Solution Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Opening up the creativity box looking for different alternatives encourages my team to approach a problem from different angles to come up with different solutions. If you make a mistake, you learn and improve. Most likely, you’ll get it right next time. This encourages continuous improvement every day


Digital Manufacturing Solutions Team Lead

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a product manager, I involve engineers and designers in the planning of every new feature. I record customer interviews so that other team members can get access to their valuable feedback. We are more likely to make the right decision when everyone is able to respond to the customer’s problems, not just take the word of a PM.”
