What’s the vibe like in the office?

People at Examity mesh well together, both in and out of the office. Not only do we collaberate effectively on projects, but we go out after work together, like to sporting events, the arcade, and restaurants."

Kristina

Billing and Reporting Specialist

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

When I first started here, the online proctoring industry was just emerging. The most challenging aspect of the job was the unknown. We had to work everything from scratch with little or no reference.

Nina

Senior Director, Account Management

What makes someone successful on your team?

To be successful in a role here, it requires great listening and communication skills, a desire to serve, persistence, and consistency over time."

Kahlil

Director, Business Development

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We've fostered creativity by building a culture that encourages collaboration. Everyone on the engineering and product teams has a voice in the work we’re doing, and that is not limited to their job title or role. Great ideas can come from anywhere, and often having an ‘outside' view is what helps solve problems or spark unconventional approaches.

Brian

Senior Vice President, Product and Engineering

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Everybody I work with comes from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. We're constantly engaged with one another, and you learn a lot and perform your best in this kind of environment."
