An Insider's view of Volusion

What are some social events your company does?

Part of our Culture Code is to "put people before everything else", with this we listen to quirky ideas that employees come up with- like having a watermelon throwing contest and a snack wagon. Yes, a snack wagon- once a month we bring an old school radio flyer wagon full of snacks around to every desk. It's so simple yet brings so much joy.

Rachel

Sr. People & Culture Coordinator

What does your typical day look like?

Once I get settled, I head over to the kitchen to pour myself a cup of cold brew. I grab fruit and something salty from our snack bins. I then meet with the teams I am apart of to give updates on my work. The rest of my day is spent prioritizing & completing ad-hoc requests, developing data pipelines, and chipping away at longer-term data projects.

Andrew

Data Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

My leaders take the time to understand my career goals. They support me by teaching me not only career lessons but life lessons too! Through company wide projects, Volusion gives me the opportunity to gain skills outside of my department. This helps me to be a well rounded sales pro and to better understand the industry and product that I sell!

Megan

Business Development Representative

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I encourage my team to just try it! Whether "it" is a new tool or program, a way to customize the website experience or connect with entrepreneurs. We always want to be testing and moving forward with our brand and our approach to creative problem solving.

Tracy

Visual Design Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

We're there to make sure our merchants get heard so being a great listener helps for a start! Other skills that would make someone successful on our team is being organized, attentive to details, willing to work hard to make the team successful and going the extra mile to make sure that our merchants feel taken care of.
