An Insider's view of Braze

What are some social events your company does?

Every month, a different department hosts a social event - this provides a great opportunity to get to know and collaborate with people across teams. In addition to broader team social events, we also host a quarterly team outing where we do team building activities and socialize outside the office. It’s really fun!

Business Development Manager, East

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work closely with teams from across marketing, as well as from a variety of different departments—from customer success to product—to inform the content we create. Thankfully, the people at Braze aren’t just really smart; they’re also thoughtful and kind. That makes collaboration easier and something I look forward to every day.

Managing Editor, Content Marketing

At Braze, we refer to work-life balance as work-life harmony -- and we strongly value it. Our flexible paid-time-off policy gives team members the ability to take time off in the way that suits them best.
