An Insider's view of Spreetail

What are some social events your company does?

One of my favorite (unofficial) social events is something we call 6:00 Club. Every Thursday at 6 p.m., if people are still at the office we all go into the bar room to play games and just get to know each other. It’s a great way to de-stress and hang out with people that you might not work with on a day-to-day basis!

Angie

Recruiter

What does your typical day look like?

As a Software Delivery Manager, I look to help ensure that the appropriate processes are in place and followed within our software development teams so we can verify and communicate that we are pushing out the most valuable solutions and products to our internal and external customers.

What are some things you learned at the company?

The speed at which we get tasks accomplished at Spreetail has made me reevaluate how much I can get done in a single day. The people here attack their job. It has made me raise my bar and bring that intensity to the office every day.

Scott

Head of Private Brands

How does the company support your career growth?

I used to have terrible public speaking anxiety — like, crying in the bathroom in high school anxiety. Now, I lead trainings and discussions for 15-20 person onboarding groups regularly. I am constantly working to polish and perfect my public speaking skills, and I'm very grateful that I am not lacking in a platform to do so.
