An Insider's view of Spreetail

What are some social events your company does?

One of my favorite Spreetail social events is run club! Every week, we get together to run on a path near our office. It's a great way to get to know others on a really deep level (sweating our butts off!). It's especially fun because it spans all teams and departments, and Spreetailers from other offices join when they come to visit, too.

What does your typical day look like?

As a Software Delivery Manager, I look to help ensure that the appropriate processes are in place and followed within our software development teams so we can verify and communicate that we are pushing out the most valuable solutions and products to our internal and external customers.

How does the company support your career growth?

I used to have terrible public speaking anxiety — like, crying in the bathroom in high school anxiety. Now, I lead trainings and discussions for 15-20 person onboarding groups regularly. I am constantly working to polish and perfect my public speaking skills, and I'm very grateful that I am not lacking in a platform to do so.
