For over 15 years, Volusion has been creating easy-to-use software that makes tricky technology accessible to the masses and connects businesses around the globe to successful e-commerce solutions. To date, the organization counts more than 40,000 clients using its software, with over $21 billion in sales—all powered by 400-plus employees in offices around the country.
Considering the company’s large-scale impact, its medium-size team is definitely a huge draw—the close-knit community and hands-off leadership really encourage individual freedom to innovate.
“There are a lot of things going on at once in our departments, so we have a lot of choice and flexibility in what we want to work on each day,” says Osei Bonsu, Senior Front-End Web Developer.
At Volusion, team members will never have to deal with managers who lay down the law when it comes to getting work done. For company leaders, it’s all about guidance and support, not micromanaging. And with beer Fridays, chair massages, bring-your-dog-to-work days, and a range of fitness and yoga classes on-site, it’s clear that the office invests a lot into the health and happiness of its employees.
Even more, there’s a strong commitment to personal growth—and plenty of opportunities to pursue it. With a 20% hack-time policy for engineers to work on personal projects, and accommodations provided for anyone to attend nearby conferences, Volusioneers are always able to keep up with the fast-moving pace of the tech industry.
“People who think outside of the box, love to learn, and enjoy staying on the cutting-edge are great candidates for careers at Volusion,” says Ken Jackson, VP of Product.
