An Insider's view of Tapcart

How does your team reward individual success?

We have an ongoing ritual in the office to ‘Ring the Gong’ every time we hit a milestone such as an account upgrade or an app going live in their respective app store. This small but memorable act encourages everyone to continue to push the limits and show the world who we are as a brand!

Val

Implementation Specialist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work with such amazing, approachable, creative people who are always down to help. We are all striving towards the same goal so it is great that I can simply walk over to a fellow coworker, lay some whacky idea on them, and next thing you know we are both running with it and turning it into something viable for the company, it is truly inspiring.

Cole

Senior Lead Customer Success

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I first started at Tapcart when the team consisted of 4 people and I was brought on as the only designer. The mix of trust/responsibility paired with good vision/direction allowed me to learn more than I ever have in such a short time span. Top that with a work environment where we all learn from each other as well as have a great time together!

Alex

Head of Design

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Tapcart’s office vibe is so positive and uplifting. I seriously look forward to coming in everyday, not only because I consider everyone a friend, but we’re all working together towards making an awesome product even better. We constantly collaborate between different teams and support one another, which makes for an awesome company culture.
