What Getting Started Might Look Like:
First 30 days
You spend your time getting to know the design team and our customers. You over-index on learning the product, watching customers use it, talking to customers and investigating the other tools that our customers use. By the end of this time, it’s like you’ve been working in our industry for years.
First 60 days
Now that you know our people and our customers, you dig in hard to our workflows, processes and tools. You take your years of expertise and critically evaluate how we work, why we’ve evolved that way and what about our current set up is robbing us of our maximum impact and efficiency. By the end of this time. you make thoughtful recommendations on how the team works together and our recruiting processes.
First 90 days
Some of your initial suggestions are starting to be implemented and the team is starting to thrive. Alignment is tighter, individuals are moving more quickly and we’re releasing better quality product even faster. You’ve sunk your teeth into our design system and have helped mentor the designers involved to make exceptional choices that lead to a more reliable path forward. You’ve taken ownership of the recruiting process and brought some incredible people into your pipeline. By the end of this time, the team comes to you frequently for guidance and you’ve earned the reputation of being a servant-leader who drives outcomes in a motivating and inspiring way.

An Insider's view of Klaviyo

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The simplest way I would describe the Klaviyo office is "energy". From the minute you start your day there's an excitement that everyone is working toward the common goal of helping businesses grow. It's a pretty amazing thing to be a part of and you can really feel it.

Director of Community Management

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

One of the great things about working at Klaviyo is that I get to work with amazing people from across the organization. While working in Finance isn’t intuitively a role that involves a lot of collaboration - Klaviyo’s finance team has regular interactions and team syncs with Sales Ops, Customer Support and the People Team!
