An Insider's view of OJO Labs

What's something quirky about your company?

Our biweekly company-wide syncs always feel welcoming; you can unmute yourself and chime in. To me, this atmosphere comes from the top. Our CEO is never scripted and always speaks off the cuff with humor and sincerity. It’s a very inviting environment. I think we are serious when it matters, and we can relax and be ourselves when the time is right.

Neena

Senior Accountant

What does your typical day look like?

My team starts the day summarizing our previous successes and our next steps… and that’s about the only thing that’s standard. This is why I love OJOso much - each day, there’s a new challenge, so no 2 days are ever the same. Between analyses, training models, bimonthly white paper reviews, and demo-ing results… there is zero room for boredom.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

OJO product designers are empowered every day - partnering with PM and ENG to envision our north-star product experience and then build it, test it, and improve it. To always grow, we meet weekly with researchers and designers from OJO marketing to get eyes on a new design, learn from a cross-org colleague, or to share a personal creative passion.

Drew

Senior Director of Customer Experience

How does your team reward individual success?

Acknowledging individual contributions is a core tenet of OJO - it’s just a natural extension of our Hire Great value baking it into our DNA. In addition to managers make providing positive and negative feedback a priority, we also have dedicated slack channels, achievement badges, gold star callouts in our team retrospectives.
