At Meltwater managers don’t only look for people with a sales or media background. Instead they look for potential—for people who are open to constructive criticism and are willing to learn from their mistakes. As a result, employees at Meltwater come from all walks of life, including former professional athletes, teachers, and more.
Staff at Meltwater may work really hard, but they also know how to kick back and have fun. Teams often get together for outings like taking a stretch Hummer limousine to a New York Jets game or going deep-sea fishing off the coast of Coney Island. It’s these kinds of events that make Meltwater such a special place.
A big part of Muhammed’s role is mentoring his staff and making sure they are equipped to help Meltwater’s clients navigate the ever-changing media landscape. His days are spent onboarding and training employees so they can do their jobs to the best of their abilities. He firmly believes that when his team succeeds, he succeeds.
“When you see leaders with passion, it makes you excited to come in every day, and it also makes you optimistic about the future of what we’re going to be able to accomplish.”
Client Success Manager
“Meltwater is a place where you can come and push yourself outside of your comfort zone in ways that you never really expected. At the same time that you’re being pushed more than you thought, you also feel really supported, because it’s a very trusting and loving environment.”
Managing Director, Client Acquisition
“The shuffleboard and pool table are nice, but I think the interaction we have in the open environment—and everyone willing to help each other—makes it all that much more fun.”
