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

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.
