The name GR8 People sums up everything our software helps our customers in talent acquisition find—GR8 People. But, it also describes our employees. Our company culture is fueled by the pure GR8ness of our employees and the enthusiasm they bring to work each day. We pride ourselves on having a workplace that’s fun, inclusive, challenging, innovative, collaborative, motivating, rewarding, and well… GR8!
When you fill a building with nerds, engineers, gymnasts, aspiring guitarists, wedding singers, architects, comic-book lovers, athletes, photographers, problem solvers, soccer loyalists, chefs, heavy metal drummers and everything in between, you are bound to create and grow something GR8. Our Employee Spotlight Series will give you an inside look on our company culture and the individuals that make GR8 People so GR8!
Today, our Employee Spotlight Series showcases our customer success manager, Jenny Dang.
What’s your role at GR8 People?
I'm a customer success manager, which includes both end-user training and account management. It’s my job to ensure that our users know how to efficiently use GR8 People in order to realize the best possible results.
What’s your favorite thing about working at GR8 People?
One of my favorite things is that I get to share my knowledge of recruiting with our internal teams and with our customers, ultimately helping them successfully leverage the GR8 People platform. Being a part of the customer success team is truly rewarding—I love working with our customers each day, providing them with the tips and tools they need to make their job easier.
The coolest thing about my job is seeing customers take the information I teach them and apply it to their everyday work. It never gets old, having a customer call you and say, Hey, I did what you suggested, and it saved us so much time! Or, We had such a successful event because of the information you gave us! I love knowing that what I did made a difference for them.
What is something about you that would surprise people?
I used to grow hundreds of African Violets. I belonged to an African Violet club where we traded plants and had large annual plant contests.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my free time, I like to knit and crochet. One of my guilty pleasures is shopping in yarn shops. In fact, whenever I travel, I try to find a local yarn shop to support local indie yarn dyers and collect yarn from all the places I’ve been. But, mostly I like to hang out with my kids and have family time. My all-time favorite place to be is in the gazebo in my backyard listening to my wind chimes. One of the best places I’ve ever visited is Marathon Key in Florida. It’s such a beautiful place to be—not too touristy, and has such a slow-paced and relaxed feel to it. I’m excited to travel there again someday.
