An Insider's view of Levelset

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I love the connection I have with team members across all offices and teams. I make myself available over Zoom and Slack on a regular basis and try to meet with folks when I’m in our offices. This is important to me because our people are investing in us just as much as we’re investing in them.
