Leaders at Nextiva shy away from formal management. Instead, they like to be considered coaches who’re involved in the day-to-day rather than strictly managing. Though tons of training does accompany the job, walkthroughs include introductions to different functions and all kinds of employees—which echoes the company’s people-first mentality and desire to hire based on fit.
Nextiva acquired its first customer in 2008—and the company has been exceeding expectations for cloud-based business solutions ever since. Today, the more than 500-strong team is still excited about revolutionizing business communications and simplifying UCaaS. That mission seems to be working, since the company is regularly recognized for its fast growth and exceptional workplace.
