An Insider's view of Modernize

What's something quirky about your company?

One of our core values is "Authentic, fun, and a little weird". Our employees here at Modernize are celebrated for their diverse backgrounds and experiences that make them each uniquely valuable to our company as a whole.

Christina Wells

Director of People Operations

What does your typical day look like?

Getting the opportunity to work on strategic projects and build projects from scratch. It's always really exciting when your executive team puts that level of faith in you to work a project from nothing to something very impactful to the business.

Ryan DuCharme

Enterprise Sales Director

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Modernize gives all employees an opportunity to develop and grow at a pace that suits them while encouraging us to design our own path. I was hired as an Account Manager and showed interest in wanting to learn more on the marketing side, so they created a role for me and helped with the transition. A year later I couldn't be happier.

Barry James

Email Marketing Associate

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

I foster an open environment where both problems and solutions can be openly discussed. I embrace a management philosophy called Radical Candor which encourages the team to care personally and challenge directly. By putting Radical Candor at the forefront of our team culture, we bypass non-productive behavior while focusing on growing Modernize.

Alan Godfrey

EVP Corporate Development/Customer Success

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It’s easy to cite that Modernize is stellar for our puppy policy, catered lunches, and unlimited PTO, but it is our culture that truly sets Modernize apart. Employees are thoughtfully set up to thrive and grow in our creative, collaborative, quirky community.
