An Insider's view of Bold Commerce

What is your vision for the company?

There is so much opportunity in commerce that's exciting for us and for our customers as they build their business. Our vision is to power every commerce interaction as we provide technology for leading brands to create powerful checkout experiences, anywhere. Wherever brands and shoppers interact, Bold can turn that into a shoppable moment.



How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Accessibility has been extremely important as we work remote across the US and Canada. We have a "roll your sleeves up" mentality that every executive is ready to help on any deal, customer call, or simply a check-in to see how things are going. We also have weekly company-wide town halls with open Q&A, along with daily/weekly department check-ins.
