An Insider's view of AlertMedia

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Management knows that work-life balance is important and they practice it themselves. Having this balance makes it easy to come into work every day ready to give 110%.

Liel Navon

Team Lead, Sales

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm excited about the opportunity to strategically hire people we feel will truly make an impact on the business and know "why" they are working hard because our product genuinely helps a lot of people. I am also passionate about our commitment to community service and driving these relationships and events!

What makes someone successful on your team?

To be a successful developer at AlertMedia you will need to be smart and passionate about great code. Our most valuable developers consistently "check their ego at the door" and focus exclusively on the best solution for the problem.

Matt Miller

Senior Developer

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

AlertMedia is inherently a very collaborative culture. No one here is above helping others, including our executive leadership team. We are readily available to assist through negotiations, demos, customer calls or to simply provide guidance. Time is never wasted on someone who cares and is focusing their effort on the right things.

Peter Steinfeld

VP, Sales

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Given our current size, collaboration comes easily, but as we grow, we have to be more intentional about how we work with each department. For example, our team often drops in on the weekly sales meetings, holds a weekly meeting with the sales team leads, and has a slack channel with all of sales so people can share ideas and ask questions
