An Insider's view of Greenhouse Software

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe of the Denver office is pretty laid back. People move to Colorado for a reason, to enjoy the beauty of the Rocky Mountains. In the office we have mountain bikers, hikers, skiers, climbers, and people who just like drinking beer outside. We try to plan events that beer drinkers, non-beer drinkers, outdoorsy people non outdoorsy people.

What does your typical day look like?

There is a lot of freedom to move around, so if you don’t want to be at your desk all day, you can find a spot in the common area, snag a phone booth, or sit down at an open table with other teammates. I greatly appreciate the encouragement from management to submit my own ideas for making our office comfortable and enjoyable for everyone.

Customer Support Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started as a Customer Success Manager on our Mid-Market team, and had two ideas in mind for my next steps: move to our Enterprise team and work on our largest accounts, or relocate to our Denver office to help build out a new team and learn a new market. One year after joining Greenhouse, I accomplished not one, but BOTH of those next steps!

Kelsey Santini

Team Manager, Customer Success

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

The Support team connects with hundreds of users each day and is a vital line between our customers and our company. We take a solutions-oriented approach to solving problems and surface opportunities and feedback to the rest of the business. We also gather valuable data that is shared across the organization to inform our strategy and direction.

Alyssa Edelman

Director of Customer Support

What does career growth look like on your team?

There are a variety of career paths any Customer Support Specialist can take. We love to promote professional growth within our department, and we also encourage people to pursue career opportunities that align with their interests through promotions into other departments such as tech support, customer success, and many others!
