An Insider's view of Convoso

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office vibe mirrors our core value "Work Hard Play Hard." There are days where everyone is working on their tasks and getting things done, but we make sure to balance it out with ping pong breaks, video game Fridays, and company lunches.

A short year after that I was promoted to Team Lead Engineer. Through hard work and great opportunities I was able to grow my career much more rapidly at Convoso than I could have at another software company
