An Insider's view of Blackbaud

What are some social events your company does?

We try to do at least one event per month that caters to all interest areas, whether that’s our Pinewood Derby, our May the 4th Be With You Movie Marathon or Progressive Potlucks, where employees tour the office to pick up different parts of the meal. We also championed having a float in the Austin Pride Parade this year for the first time ever.

Stefanie Greene

HR Manager

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

The biggest technical challenge has been around consolidating data across all of our various legacy applications. This has been as much about changing the culture and tearing down historical silos as it has been about the tech. We have made huge strides in changing the organization’s culture and moving it forward.

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