3 Reasons MailChimp Is an Amazing Place to Work
There’s no such thing as a typical day. How many times have you heard that line? But when it comes to MailChimp, it’s true—and we’ll prove it.
“We have no meetings—we have no Gantt charts or project managers controlling us, having us do things,” says VP of product Eric Muntz. “We essentially get to come to work and get awesomeness done however we see fit.”
You have the freedom to shape your day and “explore the depth of your profession,” as Alianor Chapman, QA manager, puts it.
Which sounds pretty darn awesome to us.
We’re also in love with MailChimp’s commitment to community. The company is based in Atlanta, GA, and man, does it show the city love. One of its recent projects was turning a subway station into an art gallery. MailChimp also supports art organizations, urbanization efforts, and the city’s underserved youth.
The team members also love hanging out with each other around Atlanta. MailChimp even provides a super-detailed guide to new employees about Atlanta’s many awesome attractions. (See it for yourself.)
The last thing we want to mention is that MailChimp isn’t only dedicated to investing in the geographic community—it also invests in its work community. MailChimpers get to attend conferences, draw upon tons of educational resources, and even apply for $20,000 to finish school or continue their education.
So why would MailChimp be a dream company to work for? Let’s count the ways. One, the chance to be the master of your own fate and decide what you want to work on and when. Two, the chance to become super involved in your city and make it even greater. Three, the chance to develop your skills and your career. And we’re sure there are so many more.
