How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Unlike large corporations where individuals have very specific jobs that limit their duties and exposure to growth, Golden Hippo has allowed me to quickly gain a lot of valuable skills for my career growth. I have plenty of exposure to challenging assignments. I've also learned how to adapt and improvise as well as take on new duties.

I've needed help from all corners of the company and I can say that from HR, to Accounting, to IT, and every person within the operations, the selfless support and true desire for my team's success is like nothing I've ever experienced.
