An Insider's view of CrunchTime!

What are some social events your company does?

Did we say we like food? Every Friday we have a huge lunch spread from one of Boston's best lunch places - and it's always something different. Tuesdays are for hot bagels and muffins. "Thursty Thursdays" feature the finest local craft brews we can get our hands on. There's even a Bevi and all the Caribou, Dunkin' and Starbucks you can drink.


Sales and Marketing

What does your typical day look like?

I manage both the Support and Technical Support teams, and because I have a technical background in product development, I often use that experience to find ways to efficiently solve product issues for our clients. We are constantly analyzing trends in how and why our clients are contacting us and we're always looking for ways to improve.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Coming from the restaurant industry, I'm especially proud to work for this company. As a Product Specialist, I'm always being challenged to learn and develop new ways to use the applications to fit how our Restaurant and Cruise customers need to run their business. Every day is different!"


Product Specialist

What are some things you learned at the company?

So, so much. One of my biggest takeaways would be the creative solutions to exciting, outside-the-box challenges. I've had the opportunity to work in three different positions at CrunchTime! in the past three years, and with dozens of teammates who each bring their own experiences, ideas, and passion to the table to help create these solutions.
