An Insider's view of Golden Hippo

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It is professional yet lively and relaxed. The office is always buzzing with people exchanging ideas and discussing different ways to reach our goals. You'll see a couple of dogs leaping down the halls and people talking about what they’re going to wear to next office party. It’s fun to work in an environment that works hard, but plays hard too!

Online Reputation Management Assistant

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I utilize our company’s tech platforms but place highest value on face-to-face interaction for collaboration. I gain a great deal of value from the digital platforms, but the most productive means of communication have proven to be in real-time and in person. At the beginning of projects we usually meet to give everyone an opportunity to contribute

Archie

Technical Project Manager

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.

Chief Customer Officer

What are some social events your company does?

Here at Golden Hippo, the work experience includes a host of social events like; monthly happy hours, birthday lunches, fishing trips, softball games, hiking events, casino nights, yacht parties, Halloween parties, etc. We have an employee lounge with arcade games and a TV. Here, “work hard and play hard" is more than just a nice soundbite.
