An Insider's view of Ruggable

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There's a very "driven" feeling in the office. Everyone is trying to put out excellent work and keep pushing the product and the company forward. At the same time, everyone is gracious and big ego's are not common. There is an attitude of perpetual growth and learning at every level.

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm most excited about projects that we're undertaking to enhance our Customer Experience. Some of the most immediate projects are expanding the different channels we communicate with customers on including phone and chat. We're also looking into standing up more self-service customer friendly tools so customers always know their order status.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Ruggable’s culture lends itself to entrepreneurial go-getters looking for rapid career growth. Team members are given a ton of autonomy and trusted to deliver value. Once you prove yourself, your scope and responsibilities grow quickly. I joined as an individual contributor, and one year later I’m leading a large team as Director of Core Product.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I find the best way to foster creativity is, ironically, to provide a healthy set of constraints and guiding principles. This creates a tremendous amount of focus and problem solving around the limitations in creative ways. It's like providing the outline of a coloring book and giving your team access to and ownership over all the colored pencils!
