An Insider's view of Instawork

What are some social events your company does?

COVID has made it difficult to get together in-person, but there have been plenty of virtual social events, including happy hours, virtual coffee meet-ups, and trivia at the company all-hands meeting.

Now that teams are slowly getting back together, there have been competitive games of mini golf, and food truck outings!

How does the company support your career growth?

When I first joined the team, I was the Partnership Manager, working with local businesses (Partners) to ensure they have the best possible experience with our solution. Now, having been recently promoted to Regional Sales Manager, I focus on my individual contributions but now I am also coaching and developing our team.
