An Insider's view of Kazoo

How does your team reward individual success?

We try to strike the right balance between rewarding both individual and collective success. Personal recognition most often is peer-to-peer with colleagues, managers, and execs amplifying and commenting on appreciation. The team members truly value the feedback, and it helps create a more aligned, supportive, and connected company culture.

Casey

Chief Marketing Officer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We work to develop, grow, and scale our renewals process. With 700 customers, the biggest obstacle we faced was how we could make the renewal process scalable for our growing customer base, without minimizing the customer experience. We’re constantly improving our process to meet the needs of our customers as well as the needs of our business.

Dre

Program Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

A deep passion for the work we do, the discipline to do the hard work day in and day out, the willingness to be uncomfortable because you know that discomfort brings growth, the ability to brush off the rejection you get on a daily basis, a natural curiosity that drives your ability to ask more questions, and a desire to have fun!
