An Insider's view of TrueAccord

What's something quirky about your company?

We like ping-pong and friendly competitions.

If you think there is no glory in winning a company ping-pong competition. Well, think again. We provide our winners a TrueAccord ping-pong paddle. There's a catch, of course, you return the paddle once someone else wins. But during that week, you have all the glory of winning this unique trophy!


Talent Sourcer and Coordinator

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?



Customer Engagement Team Lead

How does the company support your career growth?

I came to TrueAccord after university; I started as a customer service specialist and rapidly obtained more responsibilities and knowledge which led me to later transfer as a QA specialist in the engineering department with no previous coding experience. I’ve received countless opportunities and new skills that have helped shape my career vision.


Quality Assurance Specialist

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Every new engineering hire has two parallel tracks while onboarding: getting deep into a particular technical area and also conducting 1:1 meetings with key business stakeholders across the company. Afterwards, the newly ramped up engineer makes a presentation to the entire team on how she’d design some or all of our systems from scratch.
