An Insider's view of ScaleFactor

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have a vibe unlike any office or business I have worked at. Our office is less about a location (although, we have a great space) and more about combining the variations in background and taste that everyone brings to the table. It’s so fun to watch us all grow and mesh together to create the “ScaleFactor vibe” knowing we all have a part in it.

EA to the CEO

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

ScaleFactor is fast paced with lots of moving parts, so collaboration with other teams is key to keeping everyone on the same page. From understanding feature priorities from sales, working with marketing on product launches, to training and support for other internal teams, every team works together to keep us headed in the right direction.

Being one of the first employees, I can honestly say I’ve had a fun and unique experience. Since joining ScaleFactor, my career has skyrocketed! From working one on one with entrepreneurs to world class venture capitalists, I've developed an extensive catalog of experiences to draw from that have helped to prepare me for my career moving forward.
