An Insider's view of ServiceNow

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

I am a working mom, and I appreciate the privilege of being able to work from home when I need to adjust my hours. I could be offline for two hours in the middle of the day because there's a school event for my kids. To be able to do so without the pressure of, "Oh my goodness! Now it's going to make me look bad," I don't take that for granted.


Manager, Strategy & Operations

What does your typical day look like?

If I could clarify one thing about being an engineer, we're a lot more collaborative than people think. Engineers can be seen as always sitting by themselves in front of a computer in a dark room and code just streaming down it. However, we work closely with project managers and designers to create the best product for customers.


Senior Machine Learning Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Since joining ServiceNow, I've built out my leadership team, and 60% are women. My goal for my team is to create opportunities and a platform to showcase the incredible impact that they're having on the business, whether that's having them lead a critical initiative with cross-functional visibility or present during a C-suite meeting.



What is your vision for the company?

We want to create a place where people want to come to work every day and do what they enjoy–where they feel challenged, collaborate with colleagues around the globe, and know what they're doing matters. It is really humbling to work with so many hardworking individuals who also want to see each other succeed and who are building something great.


Chief Technology Officer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Sometimes, we feel a little self-conscious. We may feel intimated or too shy to share our points of view. But in order to make an impact, we need to be able to trust our voice.


Director, Product Design
