An Insider's view of GumGum

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

What I have found most refreshing about the collaborative nature of the GumGum Sports team is the commitment to providing a fun non-work environment, as well. These activities, in combination with a generous and flexible PTO schedule, make the work-life balance at GumGum the best of any company I've worked for.

Guy Dotan

Associate Product Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

One of the challenges our team faces is training a deep learning model with minimal biases. The goal is to discern between safe and threatening content such that brands are only aligned with brand suitable content. Our priority is to ensure that our data is diverse and representative resulting in a model that is more objective than subjective.

Iris Fu

Manager, Computer Vision

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

From Publisher Development Intern to Growth Marketing Manager, Global, GumGum has given me so much opportunity for growth internally and helped pave the road for my career. I've found my love for marketing through all these opportunities and I'm truly grateful to GumGum for it!

Maya Bitton

Growth Marketing Manager, Global

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

A team isn’t truly a team unless everyone involved is open to new ideas, approaches and feedback—including the leadership group. And I believe a successful company is when leadership clearly articulates their values to the employees with the hope that they share these values and beliefs. Keeping open dialogue throughout the company is essential.

Phil Schraeder

CEO

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Hackathon, one of my favorite events of the year, encourages team-bonding, collaboration and innovation by empowering employees to form teams, brainstorm product ideas and ultimately execute on those ideas over 3-days. This event has helped drive innovation & efficiencies in our business!

Additional Perks + Benefits

Life Skills for Gummies is a program that was was launched by our PeopleOps team as a learning series focused around everyday life skills! Our CEO actually pitched this program as he wanted to offer courses to Gummers that help with everyday life (outside of the workplace). Topics range from money management to nutrition, meditation, buying a home, stocks & investments, urban gardening, etc. This program has seen extreme success and we are constantly surveying employees to offer classes that resonate with them!
