An Insider's view of MassMutual

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a Product Owner, I spend most of my time collaborating with others across different business units. On any given day, I could be spending time brainstorming design concepts of upcoming features with our design team or assisting them with presenting these concepts to outside users as part of our user testing process.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful people on my team are: passionate, curious, receptive, and engaged. Each team member is expected to be passionate about the work that they do, and the domains in which they practice. They are always solving unique problems and must be curious about finding new solutions.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We work in an open floor plan, so there is a lot of opportunity for networking across roles, teams and levels. Everyone is very friendly and welcomes the opportunity to get to know other people on the floor.
