An Insider's view of Gladly

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Gladly is the first workplace I’ve ever been where I could come in as a woman of color and feel really strong and empowered by that. In my experience at tech companies, I’ve often been the only one of my kind in the room, even in the whole company. Gladly is the first place where I feel like what makes me unique is not just appreciated, but crucial

Christina

Customer Success Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

No matter where you work across the organization you will have opportunities to get involved in the customer side of things. In my first year here as a designer, I visited multiple prospect meetings with the sales team. Those on-sites helped me empathize with our customers and get to the heart of their needs, which is reflected in my work every day

Shelby

Product Designer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Gladly as a junior engineer and found opportunities for growth to be incredible. Unlike many other companies where those new in their career get stuck on unimportant tasks, I got to work on projects that were crucial, customer-facing work.

Shelley

Engineering Manager

What is your vision for the company?

Our team's drive is to make customer service radically personal. Extending Gladly from integrated voice, SMS, email, messaging to now with in-app messaging is a big step in our vision of a lifelong conversation for companies and their customers.
