We're a collaborative, hard-working and ambitious team! We enjoy spending time together and celebrating each other's achievements. One of our values is to call out achievements big or small, which is something we practice regularly at all levels of the company. We're a very positive place to work (and being dog-friendly helps with that)!

We've reached a pivotal moment in scale with the amount of users and clients joining our platform. We're wildly excited to release our new discovery portal and app that will create an expansive and connected network making it even easier for our users to discover new venues and unique restaurant events only accessible to our network.


Head of Product

What makes someone successful on your team?

We are a team of doers who get things done in a collaborative environment. We move as one unit working closely to accomplish the team’s goals that, in turn, make inKind very successful. We ask questions (a lot of questions), make mistakes, and learn from every decision we make - evolving as a team as we learn from the past and plan for the future.


Chief Revenue Officer and Co-Founder

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The team I’m on is oftentimes the first interaction a client has with inKind. That can be a lot of pressure, but the encouragement to speak up & collaborate across teams means that I have a solid understanding of team goals as well as the goals of the company. The more I interact with teams adjacent to mine, the better prepared I am.
