How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Unlike large corporations where individuals have very specific jobs that limit their duties and exposure to growth, Golden Hippo has allowed me to quickly gain a lot of valuable skills for my career growth. I have plenty of exposure to challenging assignments. I've also learned how to adapt and improvise as well as take on new duties.

Ahmad

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

Golden Hippo has a culture that encourages everyone to share ideas. For example, our customer care agents hear firsthand what customers are saying, so we’re able to take that information and funnel it back to the product developers, writers, etc. This allows us to directly influence the way campaigns are run and optimized.

Peter

The Management and Leadership training initiatives. These programs are meant to support the development of our future Hippo leaders, regardless of their existing experience and career levels.
