An Insider's view of Sittercity

What are some social events your company does?

During the work day, break time can equal Mario Kart, coffee runs or ping pong. After work, we have had fun activities including Trivia Night and happy hour. For food lovers, we've had potlucks, a chili cook off, and cookie contest!

Josh

Director of Customer Success

What does your typical day look like?

Analytics is core to what we're building here. By leveraging data from social networks, family demographics, and existing users, we're creating a smarter matching experience for families and sitters. My team is making these data sources accessible to every team member, so we can make smarter business decisions and improve the user experience.

Micheal

Director of Analytics

How does the company support your career growth?

Sittercity has allowed me to take on different projects and claim ownership in order to grow. They've supported my career decisions, like moving from operations to customer success. Every project I do matters and contributes to our overall success. Not only has Sittercity helped my career growth, they've helped me grow outside of work as well.

Justine

Trust and Safety Specialist

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

The problem we're working to solve requires a "go slow, to go fast" approach. Our team, myself included, works hand in hand to make sure we're building smartly and collaboratively. I believe in daily stand-ups, regular 1:1s and maintaining an open door policy with the entire team.

Shane

Head of Technology

What are some social events your company does?

We’re a pretty social group who appreciates a healthy balance of virtual and in-person events! From drag bingo, trivia, happy hours, and to hosting our first Pride Picnic in June 2021. My personal favorite, though, is Sittercity Karaoke Night. The Sittercity Team loves the social time we spend together giving back to communities.
