An Insider's view of Evernote

What's something quirky about your company?

A quirky thing about Evernote is the level of access provided to company leaders. While a lot of companies have open plan offices, I'm not sure for how many companies that same open spirit infuses communications and interactions. At Evernote, input from employees is encouraged and considered. If you're a member of the Notable Herd, you are heard.

Dewi

Director, Customer Experience

What does your typical day look like?

I help build Evernote's new mobile apps. This entails conversations with Product, QA, and Design to strengthen the feature descriptions. We research tools, and as we're building, test drive our new feature. We put a lot of effort to review our teammates' code and keep our quality and performance high. We have plenty of fun breaks at the office.

José

Software Engineer

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

Our team provides fast and comprehensive service to 200M users worldwide. We educate our customers on our platform features and resolve issues through multiple channels. We raise the voice of our customers and inspire feature creation to make our user's lives easier. By doing this, we increase customer lifetime value and company financial health.
