An Insider's view of AuditBoard

What are some social events your company does?

AuditBoard has a culture committee that holds regular social events. Outdoor activities, charities, and happy hour are regularly planned. But also -- the Product team collaborates separately with Engineering, Design and QA to hold team events that are offsite and hilariously fun. Some examples are a trip to the mountains, escape rooms, and Knotts.

Mitch

Director of Product Management

What projects are you most excited about?

The two upcoming projects I'm most excited about are our Slack integration and the development of a public 3rd party developer API. With the release of both of these new initiatives, we'll be giving auditors and developers more powerful ways to interact with our platform.

Josh

Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

To be successful as a designer at AuditBoard, you need to be eager to learn and collaborate. Since our products focus on an industry that lacks great design, we love designers who can solve complex problems within a given system and be an advocate for the users.

Mac

Visual Designer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We focus on the following to drive innovation:
- Engage and empower the entire team
- Hire for and build our culture around mentorship and letting the best ideas rise
- Intense focus on the customer and discovering/solving their problems

Hayes

Senior VP of Engineering

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

As part of the Implementation Team, we hear directly from our customers what their needs are, what's working well and what could be improved. We understand their requirements and take that back to Engineering and/or Product to see what the best solution is. Customer feedback definitely plays a role in how we prioritize new releases and features.
