An Insider's view of Blackbaud

What are some social events your company does?

We try to do at least one event per month that caters to all interest areas, whether that’s our Pinewood Derby, our May the 4th Be With You Movie Marathon or Progressive Potlucks, where employees tour the office to pick up different parts of the meal. We also championed having a float in the Austin Pride Parade this year for the first time ever.

Stefanie Greene

HR Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

The biggest technical challenge has been around consolidating data across all of our various legacy applications. This has been as much about changing the culture and tearing down historical silos as it has been about the tech. We have made huge strides in changing the organization’s culture and moving it forward.

Steve Merritt

Senior Distinguished Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

We have a very employee-focused environment. Our managers and team leads will often discuss career development strategies with us and offer opportunities to connect with people who can give us firsthand information about a role or experience. To help us be as successful as possible, they suit our strengths and the company's needs.

Kristin Nelson

Team Lead, Sales

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We have changed our fundamental offering from a software solution to a series of capabilities and analytics that have an immediate and measurable impact on customer outcomes. This allows our sales team to be highly consultative with clients, introduce them to a broader community and have confidence that the outcomes we promise will be delivered.

Brandon Phipps

VP of Sales and Market Development

What are some things you learned at the company?

From employer-sponsored volunteer days to community grants, Blackbaud allows its employees to give back to our clients!
