An Insider's view of Shopgate

What's something quirky about your company?

Part of our team is based in Germany, and the cultural exchange is super fun. I’ve learned a lot of random German words by osmosis, and taught my overseas colleagues how to properly use “y’all”. Working with a team 7 hrs. ahead has its challenges but we value taking the time to make these cross-cultural connections to foster a “one-team” mentality

Nico

Product Manager

What does your typical day look like?

My favorite thing about my workday here is that it's never truly the same every day, because there are always new opportunities to take advantage of. We're a small but close-knit company, departments frequently collaborate with each other on projects, and you are always given opportunities to work with company leaders in both Austin and Germany.

Marketing Communications Specialist

What makes someone successful on your team?

As a Senior Customer Success Manager it is crucial to be merchant and customer focused to be successful. Not only are we providing first-class service for our merchants but we have to consider their customers and the user-experience. We are mobile experts who just happen to be fast-paced problem solvers!

Natalie

Sr. Customer Success Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

From day one I have involved every individual on my team, from top to bottom, in conversations on what works and what doesn't work. They are encouraged and empowered to develop solutions that work for them to the benefit of the team as a whole. Eliminating top-down only decision making energizes everyone!

Ken

VP of Customer Success

How does your team reward individual success?

One of the things I love about Shopgate is the monthly rewards for different categories that align with our corporate values. Also, each team has their own way of recognizing top performers. In sales, we did a March Madness competition and the winner got a Hotel + Spa package! It definitely creates some friendly competition and makes work fun.
