Making Workplace Collaboration Easier

Insights from Smartsheet's Senior Software Development Manager

In a world where technology allows us to be more connected than ever before, the value of collaboration in the workplace is paramount. People want to share easily digestible information in real time with their teams.


Not everyone can be an Excel dashboard guru, and it's a shame when employees spend valuable time on work they're not best-equipped to do. (I know I've complained about this more than once as I struggled to track initiatives, build reports, and share data with my team.)

Enter Smartsheet, a company founded on the idea that teams and millions of people worldwide deserve a better way to deliver their very best work. Today, the company delivers a leading cloud-based platform for work execution, empowering organizations to plan, capture, track, automate, and report on work at scale, resulting in more efficient processes and better business outcomes.

As you might imagine, this transfers directly to their own team and culture - they're committed to empowering their team members to do their best work each day. And collaboration is absolutely key to their success.

We chatted with Carissa Cecil, Senior Software Development Manager, to learn more about the collaborative culture at Smartsheet and how you can become a part of it. (Spoiler alert: they're looking for collaborative folks to join their team!) Check out her answers below:

What does the interview process look like and how long does it usually take?

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year.
