Insider's spotlight

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

Work Hard. Play Harder.

Christina Wells

Director of People Operations

I foster an open environment where both problems and solutions can be openly discussed. I embrace a management philosophy called Radical Candor which encourages the team to care personally and challenge directly. By putting Radical Candor at the forefront of our team culture, we bypass non-productive behavior while focusing on growing Modernize.

Alan Godfrey

EVP Corporate Development/Customer Success

The vibe in the office is exuding positive, motivating energy, which is one of our core values. As soon as you come into the office you can see team members interacting with each other whether it's congratulating them on a sale or problem solving on a specific issue. Modernize is the very definition of work hard, play hard and we love it!
