An Insider's view of Sure

How does your team reward individual success?

We have a really kudos-giving culture (++'s, shoutouts, etc.). Each engineer's strong suits are discovered, and the work is arranged around what we know well or are excited to learn. For me, the biggest reward is getting to do work that I love to do, which happens to be very math-centered. We get to become subject matter experts in areas we enjoy.

Backend Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

The best part of being a marketer is that no two days are exactly alike. In fact, it changes by minute as I pivot from content to design to PR. However, one thing remains consistent from day-to-day — the motivation I get from the Sure team to continuously strive for greatness. Everyday I’m surrounded by amazing people that produce incredible work.

Brenna

Head of Marketing

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has exploded since being here at Sure. Everyday I am given in the opportunity to work on ground breaking products. Whether it’s refactoring an existing paradigm or innovating on a new idea, I’m given the tools and team members to go above and beyond what I knew was possible. For this, my growth is limitless.

John

Product Designer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The most creative ideas are fostered in environments where team members have a strong sense of ownership over their projects, feel safe enough to be vulnerable, and challenging the status quo is encouraged and rewarded. It’s my job to make sure that these elements are a part of everyday life at Sure.

Dan

Chief Product Officer

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

Our Partnerships Team is constantly coming up with innovations that not only focus on our clients' needs, but the big picture of Sure. These ideas influence product decisions, which our leadership team is quick to implement, ultimately helping us continue to grow smoothly. We are able to support business progression through collaborative teamwork.
