An Insider's view of Your Super

What are some social events your company does?

We have at least one team event every month. Our office is in Venice Beach, so we like to get outside! We'll often leave the office early to go on a hike to catch one of the beautiful LA sunsets. We love food at Your Super, so it's not surprising that a lot of our events are planned around it. Pancake socials anyone!?

Carly

Senior Content Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

I am excited about how we can create an international workplace that is inclusive for all employees. At Your Super, we value the importance of hiring and retaining top talent. We do not have all the answers, but we are looking forward to starting initiatives in learning & development, recruiting, community service and many more.

If you are ready to grab every opportunity with both hands then the chances for career growth at Your Super are huge. Not only has my potential been recognized from day 1, I have been encouraged and pushed beyond what even I thought I was capable of - and supported the whole way by an awesome team.

Hannah

Head of Customer Experience

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The energy in the office is great. Some perks include a nice patio in back where we hangout for lunch, free superfoods, and close proximity to good food in Venice. We are a hard-working group but we also let loose and hangout too, which makes our office a fun place to work.
