An Insider's view of LeanDNA

Management puts trust into each employee’s contribution and competence here, and that shows in our laid-back and energetic office vibe. We also have an open floor plan that encourages collaboration, plus couches and bean bag chairs. So you can find the right space at the right time without feeling like you're being micromanaged.


Client Success Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We’re helping manufacturers get their factories off of spreadsheets and into a purpose-built platform that provides them with daily actionable insights. It's fulfilling work knowing that we’re giving these teams hours back in their day to focus on more rewarding work.


Enterprise Account Executive

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned so much about supply chain and the struggles and motivators of leaders and buying teams at companies we work with—the factories that build our cars, planes, and the machinery that powers our production systems. We're lucky to be able to help these professionals thrive in their careers and feel more fulfilled in their day-to-day work.


Campaign Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Productive, collaborative, and constantly moving! My day begins with a team huddle to decide priorities and goals for the day. I spend most of my time working with prospects, clients, and our internal team to solve problems when they arise, so there is never a dull moment. There's a lot of work to do and we have a great team working on it together!
