An Insider's view of Grammarly

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our values actually represent our team. Discussions about ethical decision-making or tweeting empathetically are common at Grammarly, and I recognize how rare that is.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We resolve our problems with constructive discussions that are only made possible by the level of empathy and listening skills that team members have here. It makes me happy to know I work with such exceptional people.

Maryna

What makes someone successful on your team?

On my team, we have the opportunity to face down interesting technical challenges, like building an in-house data analytics platform. I like that my work can have a major impact on achieving our company goals.

Umayah

Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

Writing helps us all achieve personal, professional, and academic success, but effective communication requires talent and time. It can be very challenging, and we may not always be able to effectively express our meaning, convey our intent, and be fully understood—creating a gap with our audience. We’re building Grammarly to close this gap.

Brad

CEO

What projects are you most excited about?

I always feel pumped when I see the positive feedback we get from our users. To know that your work is helping people discover a product that meaningfully improves their lives—it never gets old.

Head of Growth
