An Insider's view of SNACKNATION

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe is high energy and collaborative; It is a really hard-working group of people who love to support each other. When someone gets to their goal, they hit the gong and the whole office cheers for them. We also find time to enjoy the perks in the office - unwinding in the meditation room or participating in our snack tasting panel.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since joining this company, I've been immersed in the complex, thrilling, and ever-changing world of eCommerce. The B2C arm of our company is small, mighty, and growing rapidly. It's fun being along for the ride, and invaluable. I'm now sure I'll devote my career to eCommerce, and my career path was illuminated by my experience here at SnackNation.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Most importantly, SnackNation has taught me that career growth goes hand in hand with personal growth. Since working here, I've changed my eating habits, sleeping schedule, improved the way I manage my finances and pushed my physical limits to the next level by doing a few 100 mile bike rides. All with the help and willingness from my coworkers.
