An Insider's view of Cogo Labs

What are some social events your company does?

Every year we have a Cogo cruise where we take the day off from the office and take a cruise around the Boston harbor. In addition, we have monthly women's dinners, LGTBQ centered events and much more!

What does your typical day look like?

My top priorities are hiring for Senior level talent, looking into the recruiting funnel data to identify roadblocks, managing my team to help execute on goals, and continuing to build an efficient recruiting function to support Cogo as we scale.

What are some things you learned at the company?

I’ve always felt that my input is valued here, but also that I’m encouraged to use my voice and to make a difference in the growth of the business – whether that’s developing new partnerships or improving and owning new processes. People here are supportive, intelligent and kind. And fun. I’ve also enjoyed grabbing a drink with a colleague!

One of the most exciting things about working at Cogo is the incredible variety I see in the career paths of my peers. As an employee becomes more experienced their responsibilities shift to follow their interests, whether in building cool stuff, analyzing crazy amounts of data, or managing a team.

I have never worked in an environment where individual contributors have been appreciated and encouraged as much as they are here, and it shows people’s energy and optimism. This success is also fueled by Cogo’s commitment to transparency and easy access to our leaders who consistently make organizational goals clear."
