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.

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.

Josh

Managing Director, Account Management

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Ontra has been great for the growth of my career. I’ve learned a ton getting to work alongside brilliant and collaborative engineers who take the time to investigate and explain the technical details of what we’re building. That’s given me the knowledge to lead the development of new features and take on a new role as a Lead Engineer!
