An Insider's view of Black Spectacles

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Long running inside jokes meets heavy GIF usage meets a variety of nerdy hobbies.

Elaine

Customer Experience Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Sales and Marketing are always in sync with messaging to our customers, both for B2B and B2C initiatives. One of our core values is "world class or not at all." We've found that this overarching theme helps steer everyone on the team towards the same goal: a world class customer experience during the buying process and the customer journey.

AJ

Account Executive

What makes someone successful on your team?

To be successful on the team, one must assimilate themselves into the team already in place. Our entire team is adaptable and eager to learn. Age does not matter as long as one can learn new skills, provide new ideas, and different points of view. Lastly, supporting each other and giving everyone respect is essential to the team's success.

RJ

Community Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

For about a year now, we’ve been having all of our employees engage in our quarterly and annual planning process. This process helps decide which projects we work on. We have breakout sessions where smaller groups brainstorm ideas and bring it back to the larger group. Then we have a voting system that really makes it interactive and fun.

Greg

Director of Product

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

In a word, our work-life balance is “healthy.” Working beyond a 40-hour week is not expected, nor is it a regular occurrence. But, every single person here is an A-player and will work to produce world class results. We encourage everyone to lead physically and emotionally healthy lifestyles, and we genuinely care about each other’s personal lives.
