Location

We're in the West End - near the Celtics, Bruins, and only a 2-min walk from North Station and the Haymarket T. Big things are happening around here!

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.

What does your typical day look like?

As an implementation lead, when I am on the road, I spend my day onsite with the client at their corporate offices guiding them through the process of integrating CrunchTime into their business model. One of the most interesting aspects of my job is learning our client’s business needs and helping them configure our application to meet those needs.

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!"

Missy

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.
