An Insider's view of Khoros

What does your typical day look like?

My day starts with a quick check of Slack for anything urgent. Daily meetings include selecting new vendors, working on implementations, supporting the business with projects, or having 1x1s. I try to block time for focused project work, daily walks, and lunch away from my desk. In between, I'll catch up on our social Slack channels!

We interact with customers daily, so we convey what they’re asking for, and we want to facilitate collaboration to make an even stronger “One Khoros.”
