An Insider's view of Motive

What are some social events your company does?

We recently celebrated International Women's Day in the office, where we enjoyed food and drinks, and learned more about why we celebrate this holiday with Motive employees. We also celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month by hosting an event with Latinas in Tech in the office. It's so much fun to get together, meet new people, and share our stories.

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.
