An Insider's view of GreenPark Sports

Everyone at GreenPark is passionate about what they do. The energy here is contagious. This has been the most supportive team I have ever worked with, we are all here to help each other and collaborate to do amazing things.

Creative Talent Acquisition Specialist

What does your typical day look like?

My day usually begins with team and project standups to align on priorities. Depending on where we are in the development cycle, I might also participate in a project planning or QA session, interview a candidate or help onboard a new teammate. Since switching to remote work, some of us take time to exercise and then finish our work asynchronously.

A successful person in this company is someone who knows and is thrilled about what they are getting into. We aren't a corporate behemoth with an established line of products. We're a fledgling startup, forging paths into the unknown, building the company and its culture as we build the product. It's the most engaged I've been in a long time!
