An Insider's view of Jellyvision

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

Work/life balance isn't a buzzword or a benefit we're striving for at Jellyvision, it's ultimately an outcome of respect and thoughtfulness that permeates the whole company. We trust each other to get our work done, and we don't spend time in the dreaded "meetings for meeting's sake." Schedules are flexible because it works, and it makes us better


Account Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

If I’m coordinating, I absolutely love ending a meeting by summarizing action items any teams are accountable for before everyone leaves. Especially with so much information to keep track of, it helps me to pinpoint the important bits. Making sure there is clarity all around is the best and most efficient way that I can collaborate with teams.


Talent Coordinator/Sourcer

What makes someone successful on your team?

The product team is full of self-driven, curious, scrappy individuals. The most successful are the least afraid of jumping into ambiguity and getting creative in overcoming the numerous obstacles thrown at them every day. Their ability to adapt to change quickly while keeping their teams calm, cool, and collected makes the job look easy!


Principal Product Manager, New Concepts

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Implementation is a team of ballers, constantly impressing me with new ideas. Our most recent ideas are new classes around Professional Development and a pilot approach to quickly implement customers. These ideas came from folks on the team. When my coworkers have these ideas, my job is to give them the support and resources to run with them.


VP of Implementation
