An Insider's view of Volusion

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We function a bit like a startup, so it's a fast paced environment that nurtures new ideas, but we also have a lot of fun. From celebrating holidays (even the funky ones- I'm looking at you Back to School Day) to Bingo Friday and Super Bowl parties, our People & Culture team always finds ways to bring us all together!

Samantha

Social Media Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

There are a lot of aspects of ecommerce that can be really complex - taxes and duties, shipping rates, GDPR and data privacy, SEO, etc. The biggest problem we tackle every day is finding ways to do the complex work for our founders so they can focus on what really matters to them - their product or service.

Jonathan T.

Director of Product & Design

What makes someone successful on your team?

We're there to make sure our merchants get heard so being a great listener helps for a start! Other skills that would make someone successful on our team is being organized, attentive to details, willing to work hard to make the team successful and going the extra mile to make sure that our merchants feel taken care of.
