An Insider's view of SimplePractice

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Everyone is really kind and hard-working in a way that pushes you to do your best. We always strive to have clear communication so that politics and games don't factor into daily work. It really does feel like we're on the same team, working towards common goals. I go home every night proud of what I've accomplished.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Although not always possible, I'm old school and try to have in person interactions with other team members whenever I can. Developing an understanding of what other department goals are has also helped me build relationships with others as a way to see we are all supporting one common company mission.

At SimplePractice, I’ve really learned how to take full ownership of my work. I get feedback from other colleagues, but I’m solely responsible for the vision and execution of web design. Having this level of control has made me a lot more confident.
