WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK
As a technology company in the heart of Silicon Valley, YOU Technology must compete for our employees as much as we compete for our customers. We are successful in attracting and retaining top talent because we focus on the quality of our people and the quality of our work environment. In work, we actively create an environment of openness, trust and collaboration. It's not unusual for people from different departments to run an impromptu brainstorming session to get fresh perspectives on a marketing problem, an engineering problem or even a suggestion for our well-stocked snack room. In learning, we always know that today's good idea will lead to tomorrow's great idea. But only if we prepare ourselves for that next level. Our collaborative culture helps us learn from the professional experience and even life experience of each other. We are proactive in this multipoint education through all-hands meetings every two weeks. In these meetings we talk about the successes and opportunities for our company and for each department. We acknowledge breakthroughs experienced by teams and individuals. And we hold ample time for questions, suggestions and discussions that routinely identify and solve important issues as well as solidify our culture.
