An Insider's view of Centerfield

How does your team reward individual success?

We have a bonus program that's based on individual performance and the best part about it is that it's paid quarterly so you're constantly getting a bonus check. We also have a quarterly all-star award which is rewarded to someone once a quarter who went above and beyond - and not only do they get a plaque but they get a cool prize too.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The media buying team collaborates with other teams on a daily basis in order to ensure that our campaigns run smoothly. We use multiple different channels to collaborate, especially Slack. We have slack channels for each department which allows us to easily communicate with other teams when we need their help.

How does the company support your career growth?

We have a strong focus on people development and making sure our employees feel supported throughout their career. We promote from within and take risks on our talent by giving them broad scopes of responsibility. We've also rolled out a 3 month management training program that focuses completely on them and their unique leadership style.

Gena

Director of HR

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

We have an open door policy and extremely flat culture organization, where the executive team is highly focused on execution and daily measurable results. The team leads by “getting their hands dirty” every day and works collaboratively with team members from each department.

Jason

Co-Founder

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in our office is friendly, laid back and casual, but don’t let that fool you-everyone is always hard at work! You can tell people care about their individual performance as well as their contribution to the company’s mission. While consistently busy, we still make time to socialize and catch up with each other and have fun!
