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?
