An Insider's view of SharkNinja

What are some social events your company does?

We are afforded the opportunity to immerse ourselves in many cultures to know our target consumers but also encouraged to understand how and why certain celebrations are done. Our Holi & Vaisakhi Virtual Celebration brought color and merriment to the lives of our associates while fostering a deeper appreciation for cultures different from our own.

Vignesh

Senior Product Developer

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

As SharkNinja continues to drive business growth by looking at opportunities in new markets and segments, we often need to learn new technologies and build know-how. It requires us to build up a new ecosystem. The business demands a short learning curve and fast pivoting so that we can start playing in the new field at the earliest opportunity.

Tony

Vice President, Engineering

How does the company support your career growth?

In addition to mentors, the Talent Development team has played an important role in supporting my personal growth and ambitions. By providing associates with thoughtful, relevant training courses/learning programs, associates are educated on how to build their personal brand underscoring the importance of relationships, owning each other's success.

Alexa

VP, Global Consumer Experience

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Communication is the key given the fact that we’re always relying on global teams to deliver our products. Trust, respect, and empowerment are also part of the formula for a productive collaboration across the globe. Getting to know my co-workers and their strengths is critical so that we can complement each other effectively and efficiently.
