An Insider's view of Compeat

What's something quirky about your company?

A large percentage of our employees come from the restaurant industry. We are all foodies and often share recipes, bake incredible treats for each other and just enjoy each other's company (online and in person). In fact, I am the mixologist tonite and showing the team how to make a signature Compeat cocktail and mocktail at our Happy Hour.


Salesforce Projects Specialist

What projects are you most excited about?

Currently I'm most excited about Improving the way our customers can order from their vendors. Our Restaurant back office features are battle tested and have been used for millions of hours, so finding ways to continuously improve that experience and bring customers joy, cost savings and efficiencies is very rewarding.


Senior Product Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started where lots of great people started at Compeat, in support. I was able to take more challenging projects and eventually worked my way to Technical Account Manager. Later, I was asked to move over to development, where I currently live as a database developer. Thanks to Compeat, I was able to grow and learn!


Technical Lead, Database

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

Every other month I host small group meetings with 7-10 employees over Zoom. It's during these sessions that I can help create a safe, inclusive environment where our team members can ask me anything. These meetings have been invaluable for me personally as my top priority is the well-being of this amazing group of employees.



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

Compeat is continuously improving its technology stack and client satisfaction. This is thanks to the guidance we receive from our leadership. I'm glad that we can innovate and provide new ideas to our clients to improve their business.
