An Insider's view of Smartly.io

What's something quirky about your company?

We truly live and breathe insane transparency at Smartly.io - whether it’s in our monthly founder’s happy hour where anyone can ask our CEO any question or in any internal meeting or clients meeting where feedback is constantly demanded and given.

Stephanie

Team Lead, eCom/Travel

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We have a ‘two-minute rule’—if you don’t know something and you can’t find the answer by yourself in two minutes, you should ask a colleague. Everyone’s always ready to give you a hand and help you learn.

Annabell

Account Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Open communication is encouraged at all levels of Smartly.io, it's a big part of the culture. I enjoy the interesting challenges that come from working with customers, and having the autonomy to push your idea's forward and work on things you're interested in or want to add to your skillset.

Malachy

Service Operations Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We foster extreme transparency, which allows our teams the freedom and responsibility to pursue our vision in a self-driven way. Everyone is trusted as an owner, we’re all responsible for thinking and acting in the long-term interest of the company. At Smartly.io, nothing is someone else’s problem — we’re all doers with an entrepreneurial attitude.

Kristo

What projects are you most excited about?

Automating the whole online customer acquisition funnel. We’ve only scratched the surface in solving problems for paid social marketing teams, and we’ve already pinpointed many processes in design and business intelligence which we could automate, like video creation processes, or reporting and attribution across
platforms.
