Insider's spotlight

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

At Ellevation we have great work-life balance with remote work options and flexible hours. Everyone is very committed and works hard throughout the work days but knows that their personal time and PTO will be respected.


Office Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I collaborate with others in the company through our use of Slack, regular all-hands company meetings, inter-team meetings, and our office space. More specifically, our Slack portal has been designed to include many cross functional channels such as product updates, territory-specific team channels and more. Inter-team meetings every 2 weeks, such as the Partner Product PowWow, gives partner-facing teams to learn more about the product development timeline, beta testing and the opportunity to ask questions. Ellevation also has a large open plan office with many different workspaces & locations, which makes it easy to work together & relax!


Partner Development Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful member of the data integration team is a quick learner who is process oriented with the ability to innovate. They must be inquisitive, yet self-directed with a strong attention to detail. Being a team player and just a generally nice person is also critical to their success.


Director of Data Operations

The Training Solutions team is an integral part of ensuring the overall success of our partners. Because we are the team to be in front of the end user, we [trainers] are able to provide valuable insight into the needs of our partners because we hear first hand what is going well, what could be improved, and what challenges users face. As a result, we influence and provide end user perspective that is valuable to product designers, implementation managers, marketing, and sales.
