An Insider's view of Modernize Home Services, a QuinStreet vertical

What's something quirky about your company?

Our love, and at times borderline obsession, with dogs and cats. It’s perfectly acceptable for meetings to be derailed when someone’s dog or cat comes into frame.

Hunter Skrasek

Software Engineering Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Not every day is the same, but there are similar elements: creating and analyzing reports, optimizing campaigns (ad creatives to bid adjustments), proactively working on new and existing initiatives with account managers and our engineering team. And of course, I have weekly meetings that allow me to learn from other teams.

Maria Chavez-Mata

Senior Digital Marketing Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I was looking to leave my previous company, one of the most important characteristics I was looking for in a new job was opportunity for professional development and the chance to grow within an organization that was open to allowing just that. I credit much of my growth here to the environment that's been created and fortunate to have.

Alex Adams

Demand Generation Manager

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

I foster an open environment where both problems and solutions can be openly discussed. I embrace a management philosophy called Radical Candor which encourages the team to care personally and challenge directly. By putting Radical Candor at the forefront of our team culture, we bypass non-productive behavior while focusing on growing Modernize.

Alan Godfrey

SVP of Modernize Home Services

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It’s easy to cite that Modernize is stellar for our puppy policy, catered lunches, and unlimited PTO, but it is our culture that truly sets Modernize apart. Employees are thoughtfully set up to thrive and grow in our creative, collaborative, quirky community.

Senior Content Strategist
