An Insider's view of Kazoo

What are some social events your company does?

I have never had so much fun at company social events before coming to Kazoo. Whether it’s Halloween where we’re all dressing up and competing for the best costume, social lunches, playing trivia, or end-of-year celebration, it’s always a hoot! Getting together with my fellow KazooCrew both in and out of the office is something I look forward to.

Elle

Head of People & Talent

What projects are you most excited about?

Kazoo is at an exciting tipping point, and partnerships and integrations are key to moving the needle. Many meaningful relationships for the business have been built especially with employee engagement being so top of mind. I’m excited about 2021 as we bring the partner channel from a foundational phase to the point of opening new doors for Kazoo.

Amanda

Business Development Director

How does the company support your career growth?

Kazoo supports my career growth by providing me with the tools I need & allowing me to determine when & how to use them. By trusting that I have the best interest of both our organization and our customers in mind, I’m able to try new things, introduce new ideas & continue learning. It's that level of trust & autonomy that has allowed me to grow.

Lisa

Manager, Accounts

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I encourage teams to challenge the status quo, get creative, continuously improve processes and optimize tasks. We have a culture that allows for some trial and error in order to learn, which has led to more successful outcomes. People are more willing to think outside the box to solve problems instead of always going with what has been done before
