Interview with Our Team Member: Cliff
Title: Business Analyst
Start date: Oct 2015
What do you do at ShippingEasy?
I am responsible for gathering raw production data and assimilating it into quantitative business intelligence. This BI helps each department formulate actionable items and strategies that continue to build value in the company. This includes term reporting, tracking partnership performance and dissecting views/trends.
What do you like about your specific role?
Being part of all the “light bulb” moments. I get to work with each department and provide them with statistics and figures which are the building blocks towards new initiatives and goals. It is a ton of fun to spot issues, go hunt down the metrics, watch a new team or project get a green light, and then watch those metrics begin to trend upward and to the right!
What is your favorite thing about working at ShippingEasy?
Along side the hilarious and kind coworkers, I would say the outstanding management is by far the most impressive aspect of this company. The management is awesome at encouragement through leadership. From new hires to long time employees, everyone is taken care of in the most fairest way possible. By far, this is the most competent group of people I have ever had the opportunity to work with.
If you were talking to an applicant for a role at ShippingEasy, what would you tell them about working here?
To start, the CEO sits at an IKEA table right in the chaos of the sales room, and by chaos I mean nerf gun battles, great music, and very often everyone cheering on a rep that just landed another account. So take that as a baseline for the vibe in the sales department. In the “Dev Lair” as I call it, you will find a peacefully quiet room with some amazing brains punching out some of the best software I have ever seen. The support team has a cozy office space that feels like home and zens out on pizza and hugs. The perks of the company are abundant but most importantly, its being part of something that constantly delivers that will put a smile on your face everyday.
If you had to name 1 reason that someone should want to work at ShippingEasy, what would it be?
The number one reason that someone would want to work here is that, whether you are just starting your career or looking to bring your talent in, the opportunities in this company to further your career are exponential. It is very common for startups to aspire for an acquisition and then simply move on to the next hot call. This company is far from that. We are all invested on a personal level to finding out just how big we can make it in the e-commerce environment, to see how many aspects of e-commerce can we change with our ever-evolving line of solutions, and to proudly carry our success as a team towards WORLD DOMINATION!
