An Insider's view of Worksmith

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have a very collaborative vibe in our office. Our space is open and our desks are all pretty close so we can talk to each other rather than live through Slack (although we do love Slack). Luckily we all get along really well so it's not a burden to be so close together. Overall its a pretty hard working chill vibe in our office and I love it!


Marketplace Operations Specialist

What does your typical day look like?

Every day presents a new challenge that we creatively and collaboratively work to overcome. We kick off with a daily team stand up, and might even have a cross-departmental meeting. Some days I work on an event for 100 attendees in NYC, a leaking roof in Miami, AND an emergency plumbing issue in Chicago. Whatever the challenge, Ops has it covered!


Marketplace Operations Specialist

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We're currently focused on building a scalable marketplace that connects clients to local vendors. It's a unique challenge that requires the right combination of technology and the human touch, and is extremely rewarding as we make progress!
