When it comes to management and leadership, Smartly does things differently—like cutting out titles that limit people to one lane and inviting employees to shape and sustain the unique culture. Because the team is lean, communication methods are very transparent, even when it comes to hiring and finances. This insight makes everyone feel included—without an inner circle that runs the show alone.
A cool office overlooking Times Square is only the start of what makes working at Smartly special. The fast-paced startup vibe crosses continents too, since the company has offices in several places. In town, employees benefit from an excellent work-life balance with over a month of paid time off—as well as team dinners, sports, and karaoke nights.
“I have opportunities to work across all areas of the business. One week, I can help plan an event, and the next, I can be in a product development meeting—neither of which are my primary job function.”
“There’s definitely an emphasis on enjoying your time away from work. The environment is so fast-paced, so it’s nice to be encouraged to step away too.”
