An Insider's view of Klaviyo

What's something quirky about your company?

The simplest way I would describe the Klaviyo office is "energy". From the minute you start your day there's an excitement that everyone is working toward the common goal of helping businesses grow. It's a pretty amazing thing to be a part of and you can really feel it.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

One of the great things about working at Klaviyo is that I get to work with amazing people from across the organization. While working in Finance isn’t intuitively a role that involves a lot of collaboration - Klaviyo’s finance team has regular interactions and team syncs with Sales Ops, Customer Support and the People Team!
