An Insider's view of KeepTruckin

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started on our Customer Success team 3 years ago. When I saw we were hiring internally for the Product team, I knew this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. Since I joined the Product team, I’ve been paired with a mentor, attended the Women in Product Conference & have been given so many opportunities to continue learning about Product Mgmt.
