An Insider's view of Golden Hippo

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We use a mix of Jira/Slack/Invision to help facilitate clear
communication between different departments. In addition to these applications, we thrive on face-to-face interactions which help everyone share ideas and feedback about different projects and we have tons of meeting spaces that help us be able to have focused and efficient conversations.

Anisha

Front End Developer

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

Supply Chain Analyst

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

Chief Customer Officer

What projects are you most excited about?

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. L&D is planning on leveraging the knowledge of our existing leadership team and learning resources to ensure successful results for all training initiatives.
