Who we DON'T want applying
Someone just looking for a j-o-b. Who will punch a clock and give the bare minimum to get a paycheck. Those who love Silos. We operate in a team environment and collaborate on a daily basis. If you want to work by yourself, go play solitaire.
Pushing the limits of technology is a part of the average work day. That means we expect our team members to push the envelope on their own skills as well. If you aren’t growing, you’re planting roots into your chair as the light from your screen transforms you into a toadstool… and well, who would want that!?
WHO WE ARE
We Really Believe in This Stuff
Every day we get to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. Providing hope to those who need it. Getting our message out there. Helping customers get out of debt and build wealth. Showing leaders in business how to grow, serve and lead their company. Encouraging people to transition from their day job to their dream job. It's why we do what we do. Work that changes lives, work that gives hope.
Work in Your Strengths
Our goal is to help position each team member in a role that plays to their strengths, that sets them up to shine...to win. Know yourself well enough to know what you do well, and just as importantly, what you don't.
Win or Lose as a Team
Our team openly collaborates to create remarkable user experiences that positively impacts lives. Everyone on the team is responsible for bringing new ideas, perspectives and solutions to the table. Starting with day one, we want your voice as part of the conversation. Collaboration does not equal positioning and pushing others off the ladder. Rather, collaboration has the ability to benefit your paycheck. As part of a competitive compensation package, we include a share of the business we do on the web. Our aim is to serve each other, and our customers well.
Have a Life
Life is important, and we want you to have one (feel free to add that to the list of employee benefits)! That’s why we work 8-hour days with very few late nights. If normal is having to miss family events, pulling teeth to get time off and feeling like you have to choose between work and family– then weird sounds good. But hey, don’t just take our word for it…our team, company-wide, has voted our company one of the BEST places to work in Nashville five times in a row!
