An Insider's view of Carbon Black, Inc.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

The company believes in work-life balance. If I ever had a family obligation or wanted to check out early to start a vacation, I’ve never been given a hard time. It’s all about getting your work done but if you need to take off to get oil changed or something, don’t sweat it. I never felt pressured to be here from 9-5 or sit in traffic.

Matt

Product Manager

We consider the Sales Development Representative Program an important first step in building out the foundation of a future leader. Whatever your first steps are at Carbon Black won’t be your last. Our program isn’t just about getting SDRs to be a good quota carrying rep; it’s also about helping them develop the next best step in their careers.
