Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The Shopgate office vibe is totally killer! There’s nothing better than the amazing aroma of bacon along with fresh coffee in the mornings. Everyone congregates near the kitchen at breakfast and lunch. The laughter, the camaraderie and the love is brilliant within our Shopgate family! We make the most of our time together. Family + Love = Shopgate.

Beth

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Here at Shopgate, we help online retailers reach their full mobile potential which is an often faced problem. Our success is simply defined by the success we can bring to our merchants and that is what I find most rewarding.

What makes someone successful on your team?

At SG you can take charge of your career and success if you're willing to put in the effort! The flexible startup environment caters to those who are hungry. If you're itching for a change or promotion, just ask for it! I've been able to switch teams, roles, and departments and I couldn't be more thankful for that flexibility and career growth!

Onboarding Success Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

From day one I have involved every individual on my team, from top to bottom, in conversations on what works and what doesn't work. They are encouraged and empowered to develop solutions that work for them to the benefit of the team as a whole. Eliminating top-down only decision making energizes everyone!

Ken

VP of Customer Success

How does your team reward individual success?

One of the things I love about Shopgate is the monthly rewards for different categories that align with our corporate values. Also, each team has their own way of recognizing top performers. In sales, we did a March Madness competition and the winner got a Hotel + Spa package! It definitely creates some friendly competition and makes work fun.
