An Insider's view of Carbon Black

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

The company believes in work-life balance. If I ever had a family obligation or wanted to check out early to start a vacation, I’ve never been given a hard time. It’s all about getting your work done but if you need to take off to get oil changed or something, don’t sweat it. I never felt pressured to be here from 9-5 or sit in traffic.


Product Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Our vision is to create an organization with highly performing self-organizing teams. When we first embarked on our Agile Transformation, we looked at how we wanted to reorganize ourselves in a way that would make it easy for developers, quality engineers, UX, and product owners to collaborate.


Senior Director, Strategy Execution

What does career growth look like on your team?

We consider the Sales Development Representative Program an important first step in building out the foundation of a future leader. Whatever your first steps are at Carbon Black won’t be your last. Our program isn’t just about getting SDRs to be a good quota carrying rep; it’s also about helping them develop the next best step in their careers.


Sr. Director, Corporate Sales

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

My leadership style is all about empowering my teams. I work in a way that is transparent and honest and want to help people achieve personal and professional goals. I want to foster technical abilities and make sure our people are keeping up with the leading edge technologies.


VP of Product Infrastructure & Operations

What are some social events your company does?

Our culture club, Life at CB, focuses on a range of events. From company parties and sports leagues to philanthropy and learning and development, there's a ton of ways we get together. Also, a lot of communities were created by our employees, such as the Hiking Club, Women in the Workplace, and more.
