An Insider's view of Paperless Post

What are some social events your company does?

On the regular, we'll have meetings over food that allows for a moment of chit chat. We also organize movie nights and launch parties for our achievements. To top it off, we have raffles for pottery classes or exercise passes for cycling or boxing. Some events have become a tradition like having a rooftop summer pizza party.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Paperless Post has been a great place to grow my career, as they really care about my individual interests and goals. In my four years here, I grew from executive assistant to the co-founders into a role in merchandising, and now onto the brand & marketing team. Paperless nurtured my ambitions and helped me grow my skill set.

Work-life balance is definitely one of the strongest aspects of the company. Your personal time is respected; we're not a hustle culture of over-working. We're encouraged to be healthy, stay balanced, and do your best work.
