An Insider's view of Snap Inc.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

The work life balance at Snap is unmatched! I’ve worked at different tech companies, but what Snap offers is so unique. We have offices around the globe and whenever I travel, I make it a point to visit the local office to get some work done. Also, having flexible work hours encourages you to strike a nice balance between work and play.

Jasmeet

Reporting & Insights Analyst

What does your typical day look like?

A supply chain role is synonymous with unpredictable days. My daily priorities often revolve around solving complex challenges for my global business partners that happen overnight. But getting to be involved in product development with my engineering team in LA and working across global cultures to bring a product to life is extremely rewarding!

Anukul

Global Supply Manager, Snaplab

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Snap a year after college without any experience tackling problems of this scale. The fast-paced work, diversity of problems, freedom to fail, strong mentorship from the smartest minds in the industry, and room to make a notable impact propelled me from a junior hire to a technical lead in just 2 years. I’ve grown from mentee to mentor.

Winston

Information Security Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The Research team helps Snap innovate in some of the newest and most interesting areas of technology. We love being able to make an impact on all of Snap’s products by taking tough technical challenges and solving them with state-of-the-art approaches.

Program Manager, Research
