An Insider's view of Optimizely

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

Optimizely is also a place where work-life balance is a real thing. Unlimited vacation means that I’m trusted to take time off when I need it. I’ve also been able to work remotely from Tahoe so that I can drive up when there’s less traffic, and from Boston so that I can spend time with my family.

Lauren

Client Engineer

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m collaborating with another engineer on a new feature, Custom Audience Integrations, that will enable our services team, solutions partners, and customers to easily integrate our Web products with any external source of audience targeting data.

Spencer

Client Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Software engineering here isn’t about someone going off on their own with a problem and coming back with a solution. We design solutions as a team of individuals, each bringing their perspective to the table. I’ve found this way of designing has helped me grow as engineer over the years and to deliver the best results possible to our customers.

Nick

Backend Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As a leadership team, we are deeply committed to creating a culture based on inclusion, experimentation, innovation, and feeling empowered to take risks. To be successful, we have to be exceptional performers. And to be exceptional performers, we have to have passionate people driving the way.

Erin

Chief People Officer

What are some things you learned at the company?

It inspires a lot of pride knowing that I work on the best in class experimentation product and one that brings real ROI to some of the world's largest global brands . I didn't realize how much I cared about products until I joined Optimizely.
