Liel Navon

Enterprise Sales Director

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm excited about the opportunity to strategically hire people we feel will truly make an impact on the business and know "why" they are working hard. We're also revamping our employee on-boarding experience, to ensure everyone gets face to face time with all of our leaders to hear their stories and learn about each area of the business.

Kelsey Ozar

VP, People

What makes someone successful on your team?

To be a successful developer at AlertMedia you will need to be smart and passionate about great code. Our most valuable developers consistently "check their ego at the door" and focus exclusively on the best solution for the problem.

Matt Miller

Software Architect

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

AlertMedia is inherently a very collaborative culture. No one here is above helping others, including our executive leadership team. We are readily available to assist through negotiations, demos, customer calls or to simply provide guidance. Time is never wasted on someone who cares and is focusing their effort on the right things.

Peter Steinfeld

VP, Sales

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Given our current size, collaboration comes easily, but as we grow, we have been even more intentional about how we work with each department. For example, our team often drops in on the weekly sales meetings, holds a weekly meeting with the sales team leads, and has a slack channel with all of sales so people can share ideas and ask questions.
