How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I came to AlphaSense, I didn’t know exactly what my career path would look like. Having the opportunity to get in at the ground floor, learn and build a career with a company that was growing fast led me to customer success. I now have the opportunity to work hand in hand with our impressive customer base.

Steve

Director, Customer Success

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

At AlphaSense, we hire smart people who come with unique experiences and fresh perspective. Everyone has a seat at the table, and in return, we expect passionate participation. Our goal is to be better tomorrow than we were yesterday. The entire team would agree, employee input influences the direction of the company in almost every way

Kiva

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Being a Product Specialist, I have the opportunity to collaborate cross company. Whether it’s helping sales with an account customization call, working with Account Managers on creative searches, providing content with new requests from clients, or partnering with the product team on what new features should be added to the product roadmap.
