People Manager in NYC

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

A big challenge we face is providing intelligence and streamlined user experiences to customers, whilst building a flexible enough system for them so that they can onboard easily with whatever data they have saved in their systems. We tackle this by developing precise abstractions to walk this flexibility/seamlessness tightrope together.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I was one of the first business development reps in NYC. I was awarded BDR of the quarter for 3 quarters straight and was soon promoted to Account Executive. The tools I learned in the BDR role helped me to become a Top Rep for my team. Since joining Celonis the opportunity to continuously learn and grow has been my favorite part of working here!

When we face a challenge, we face it as a team and everyone brings their strength to the table. To know that I’ve played even a small role in the growth of the company is pretty awesome.
