An Insider's view of SURE

What’s the vibe like in the office?

This was my first proper job out of university after moving to the USA, and SURE made me feel like I'd found a place of genuine comfort. Anyone who's done a big move at a young age would understand how difficult it can be to find that. If you're looking for great friends and a place with constant entertainment, then here could be a wonderful fit!

What does your typical day look like?

My days are dynamic like many growing startups, but the environment makes them standout. I have walking meetings along the bluffs. In the afternoon the office conversation will turn into a random and hilarious topic. Almost every day we have a cross-team conversation about a new feature or experiment we want to launch. It’s always interesting.

Product Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful members of the SURE teams are ones who have an innate desire to be successful, be part of something larger than themselves, and can operate and thrive in an autonomous work environment. Every member of our team has the ability to contribute new ideas and bring creative solutions to the table.

How does the company support your career growth?

SURE has opened the door to tons of opportunity for me to expand professionally. I am constantly encouraged to explore new ways to excel our business across both technical and social platforms, and my ideas are met with sincere support. My trajectory for success here is how I define it, and that's what's so exciting about coming to work every day!
