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

Employees here are individuals, not numbers, and it’s understood that individual happiness comes both inside and outside of work.

We are still a very small organization, especially in the US, which allows all departments to work and grow together. We have an open culture where everyone can feel safe to share their opinion and make a positive contribution to our growth and culture. Riskbusters are agile, collaborative, and love the fast pace of a growing startup!

In the startup world, creativity is key. That could not be more true than on my team. We empower our SDRs to continuously come up with new ideas and creative messaging to see what resonates with prospects. We are all in this together; creativity and collaboration will take us to new heights.
