An Insider's view of RingCentral

What are some social events your company does?

Outside of holiday festivities, the biggest program is RingCentral Spirit Week in October. Events are planned for everyday of the week and include interactive webinars, global relay runs, philanthropic giving as well as plain ol' fashion fun. We always has a lot of pride, but this week in particular the orange and blue really shine through!

Employee Programs, Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

The diversity initiatives I'm most excited about is a values-based interview for prospective folks. Enabling diverse candidates means having diverse interview panels that reflect the company. These will help candidates and hiring managers ensure that there's a values alignment, which is much more prudent than a "culture fit."

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Working on my team is really fun! It’s very supportive, we help each other out as much as possible. I was able to work on something, have it built, and use it every day - that’s what I like about it here.
