An Insider's view of Blackbaud

What are some social events your company does?

We try to do at least one event per month that caters to all interest areas, whether that’s our Pinewood Derby, our May the 4th Be With You Movie Marathon or Progressive Potlucks, where employees tour the office to pick up different parts of the meal. We also championed having a float in the Austin Pride Parade this year for the first time ever.

How does the company support your career growth?

We have a very employee-focused environment. Our managers and team leads will often discuss career development strategies with us and offer opportunities to connect with people who can give us firsthand information about a role or experience. To help us be as successful as possible, they suit our strengths and the company's needs.

Kristin Nelson

Associate Account Executive

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

We have changed our fundamental offering from a software solution to a series of capabilities and analytics that have an immediate and measurable impact on customer outcomes. This allows our sales team to be highly consultative with clients, introduce them to a broader community and have confidence that the outcomes we promise will be delivered.

Brandon Phipps

VP of Sales and Market Development

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

In just over 3 years, I went from an associate account executive to a sales team lead and was then given the opportunity to completely re-imagine the inside sales team here in Austin. We are growing very fast, and one of our team’s fundamental purposes is to support this growth by generating top-notch sales talent that can be promoted.
