An Insider's view of Boulevard

What are some social events your company does?

This year's programming is geared toward wellness. A meditation instructor comes in once a month for Wellness Wednesdays to provide balance and clarity in the workplace. We also host group workouts like boxing and cycling at local studios. It’s not all health & fitness though we still indulge in a Happy Hour once a month.

Valerie

Office Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We are working on "platformizing" our product. Our goal is to make Boulevard customizable and extendable to fit all types of appointment-based businesses. We want to open doors for new partner integrations all the while keeping the core of the system unbiased to the type of business using it.

Jared

Director of Engineering

What makes someone successful on your team?

I look for Product Marketers that are intellectually curious, critical thinkers who hold strong opinions loosely. We have to challenge each other as a team, but also be open to learning new perspectives to shape the most effective go-to-market releases.

Priya

Director of Product Marketing

What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful employees are true customer advocates. They must easily adapt to change and persevere through the many seasons of the customer journey without sacrificing the customer experience. Customer success is our success.
