More than anything, it is the people. The passion and drive of the people in this company is amazing, and they make me look forward to coming to work every day. And the Coconut solution itself is elegant in its simplicity, with results that are staggering in its ability to change the way a company interacts with its customers – virtually overnight. The possibilities of this company, across multiple verticals, is very exciting.
Why should potential candidates consider joining the Coconut team?
Coconut is a vibrant, exciting place to work, with an amazing level of teamwork and support, unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before. The executive team puts a lot of time into making sure we keep our company culture as positive, supportive, and fun as possible.
How do you spend your time when you’re not at work?
I’m probably guilty of having too many hobbies, which means I never get to do any of them enough! I’m into photography, music, golf, cooking, reading/writing, and I really love to travel.
