An Insider's view of Spreetail

What are some social events your company does?

One of my favorite (unofficial) social events is something we call 6:00 Club. Every Thursday at 6 p.m., if people are still at the office we all go into the bar room to play games and just get to know each other. It’s a great way to de-stress and hang out with people that you might not work with on a day-to-day basis!

People & Culture

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

That it is literally all we do! Every action you take in the company will ultimately have an influence in each department in some sort of way. Therefore, collaboration and communication is key. Having the open, welcoming environment encourages that.

Business Development

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started my career journey as a Customer Experience Specialist. A few months into my role, I took part in an internal internship program with the Marketing team. Digital marketing is where I found my sweet spot. It’s vast, always changing, and can be hyper-detailed and broad at the same time, and I love it.
