An Insider's view of Volusion

What are some social events your company does?

Part of our Culture Code is to "put people before everything else", with this we listen to quirky ideas that employees come up with- like having a watermelon throwing contest and a snack wagon. Yes, a snack wagon- once a month we bring an old school radio flyer wagon full of snacks around to every desk. It's so simple yet brings so much joy.

Rachel

Sr. People & Culture Coordinator

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

There are a lot of aspects of ecommerce that can be really complex - taxes and duties, shipping rates, GDPR and data privacy, SEO, etc. The biggest challenge we tackle every day is finding ways to do the complex work for our founders so they can focus on what really matters to them - their product or service.

How does the company support your career growth?

My leaders take the time to understand my career goals. They support me by teaching me not only career lessons but life lessons too! Through company wide projects, Volusion gives me the opportunity to gain skills outside of my department. This helps me to be a well rounded sales pro and to better understand the industry and product that I sell!

Megan

Business Development Representative

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I encourage my team to just try it! Whether "it" is a new tool or program, a way to customize the website experience or connect with entrepreneurs. We always want to be testing and moving forward with our brand and our approach to creative problem solving.

Tracy

Visual Design Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

We're there to make sure our merchants get heard so being a great listener helps for a start! Other skills that would make someone successful on our team is being organized, attentive to details, willing to work hard to make the team successful and going the extra mile to make sure that our merchants feel taken care of.
