An Insider's view of Sidebench

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

Our work-life balance here is one of the best I've experienced in my career so far. People usually arrive between 9-10a each morning and leave between 5-7p every evening, and so long as you make all of your meetings and hit all your deadlines, no one's going to judge. Additionally, the unlimited vacation is a huge perk for all of us.

Keenan

People Operations Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

A part of my role is taking a client’s set of requirements and scoping out potential engagements. It's essential I get feedback from multiple teams, including UX/UI/Tech, to better inform my conversations & identify the clients true needs. To do so, I set up solutioning meetings with all roles involved & we’ll collaborate to find the best options.

Chase

Business Analyst

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Team ideas define Sidebench’s direction. Our core company value ensures nothing less, "We harness the collective genius of our diverse team to co-invent the feature." By creating an environment of open thinking & celebrating creative conflict, the team knows it's their responsibility to define company direction. Their ideas make up Sidebench’s DNA.

RJ

Director of Product Delivery

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Motivating. You can tell that everyone here loves what they do and wants to work hard to make the best products possible for our clients. At the same time, everyone is very laid back and knows when it’s time to work and when it’s time to have fun.
