An Insider's view of Ontra

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

Everyone is trusted to take time off throughout the year when they want to, and they actually do take time off. I also have my Slack notifications turned off every night, on weekends, and on PTO. We’re all about finding ways to achieve ambitious goals with sustainable and healthy day-to-day processes.


User Experience Designer

What does your typical day look like?

I spend most of my time with our customers to understand the tech-enabled legal processes currently in place and offer recommendations on products and services that will support their continued success. I work across the organization, from partnering with our attorney partners- to collaborating with the Product team to improve and scale our process


Managing Director, Account Management

How does the company support your career growth?

Ontra encourages you to grow and apply yourself where you think you’re best suited. From day one, I told my manager I wanted a strategic operations role, and that’s where I find myself 1 ½ years later. All my managers have been incredibly supportive and open.


Customer Operations Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Each day consists of collaborating with my teammates on architecture, the rest of R&D, and teams beyond our department. We prioritize ruthlessly and spend a lot of time reviewing code and pairing with other engineers on their projects to gain a better view of what’s happening across teams, spot patterns, and share learnings.
