How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Orchard is a hyper-connected company and cross-departmental collaboration is key to our success and culture. On any given day, I am working with investments, contracts, field ops and title to drive conversion. Since we have an office in NY and Austin, teams connect through break outs, zoom meetings, our internal platform and, most notably, Slack.

By blending our personalities, knowledge, experience and skills to create a cohesive team of contributors, all team members feel valued. Successful team members show grit and drive and stay engaged and excited as we grow. While everybody is great at their individual role that value and connection is ultimately what creates a successful team member.
