An Insider's view of Wistia

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Wistia provides a work-life balance superior to other companies that I have worked for. Management is considerate and encourages time spent away from our desk. Wistia truly cares about its employees both in and out of the workplace.

Patrick Bryant

Account Executive

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm really excited about the work my team and other teams at the company are currently doing to modernize integral parts of our codebase. I'm learning a lot about working with legacy code, identifying patterns that can be improved in the code, and recreating user stories in different frameworks and technologies.

Suruchi Devanahalli

Engineer II

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Wistia as a Customer Champ, truly the beginning of my career. I was encouraged to keep learning about what interested me, which led me into quality engineering. And now I'm grateful that Wistia gave me the chance to grow into that role working on making our product more robust for our customers.

Melany Vázquez Heredia

Quality Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

At Wistia we strongly encourage each individual to bring their entire self to work. We debate which state makes the best pizza, which snack deserves the “king of all snacks” title, and more. Approaching work this way in a carefree yet respectable way helps create an environment that is a great incubator for new ideas.

Uzoma Egbuchulam

Manager of Customer Support

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

My favorite way of collaborating with others teams is by creating a space where ideas flow and feedback is encouraged. I always communicate project goals—having everyone aligned early on is essential to any project I work on. I also remind myself that, yes, they are on another team in theory, but we're all still one team at the end of the day.
