Cassandra

Managing Director

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration At Brainjolt is not just a function of teamwork, it’s what makes our team work. We have a mix of staff who work at HQ and remotely and with tools like Asana and Slack everyone is able to stay connected and in-the-know. We have formal ways we work, but our spirit fosters brainstorming outside the box and often over food and drink.

Brennan

Social Video Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success at Brainjolt requires a true passion for your work and love for the company; when you have that, the motivation to take full ownership of your area comes naturally, and leads to all sorts of creative experiments and side projects that take your work to the next level.

Stephanie

Director of Content

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

True accessibility is more than an open door policy. Often, it requires you going to the team instead of waiting for them to come to you. This accessibility is a must on a lean team. Not only do multiple people wear multiple hats but we even trade hats sometimes! We take time to understand the work that is being done, so we can dive in and help.

Jeff

SVP of Finance and Data

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Fun and casual! depending on the day it could be everyone quietly working heads down, or extremely energetic with a lot of collaboration going on. You never know what you're going to get, which keeps things exciting.

Kim

Director of Audience Development
