An Insider's view of ScaleFactor, Inc.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have a vibe unlike any office or business I have worked at. Our office is less about a location (although, we have a great space) and more about combining the variations in background and taste that everyone brings to the table. It’s so fun to watch us all grow and mesh together to create the “ScaleFactor vibe” knowing we all have a part in it.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

ScaleFactor is fast paced with lots of moving parts, so collaboration with other teams is key to keeping everyone on the same page. From understanding feature priorities from sales, working with marketing on product launches, to training and support for other internal teams, every team works together to keep us headed in the right direction.
