Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe is one-of-a-kind! I love how open, accepting and fun everyone is at work! Everyone gets along, hangs out together outside out of work and there is always something fun and exciting to do together as a group. SnackNation has a really relaxed feel yet everyone is continually pushing to be the best version of themselves.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

SnackNation provides an open-door (literally & metaphorically) atmosphere allowing and encouraging employees to work interdepartmentally to get the job done and then some. As a BEM I work with our Products team, developing marketing strategies for Brand Partners and with our social & eCRM teams in content ideation & execution. And...I love it.
