An Insider's view of MURAL

What are some social events your company does?

We currently have a Mindfully MURAL program organized by employees. It includes weekly mindfulness activities that anyone can join.

Head of Culture & Collaboration

What does your typical day look like?

As a RevOps manager, my day always starts with a giant cup of coffee as I read through emails, catch up on Slack messages & check my SFDC dashboards. Then I typically split my time pretty evenly between: (1) team & stakeholder meetings (2) project management of OKR initiatives and (3) creating data-driven insights for our company’s revenue leaders.

Manager, Revenue Operations

How does the company support your career growth?

Since joining MURAL, I’ve had many opportunities to upskill myself. MURAL supported my growth from an IC PM to a Lead PM by facilitating product courses which helped accelerate my growth as a strategy-focused PM leader. MURAL also offers manager training programs to ensure new managers have the resources they need when stepping into a new role.

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One of the things that always comes to mind is how to demystify innovation, for me, innovation is to try things in new ways, and for that, I encourage teams to do a lot of experiments, test small and big ideas, see what works and what doesn’t in short feedback loops and celebrate failures as these are great opportunities to learn.
