Our people tell us that they joined us for career opportunities, the unique culture and the interesting and challenging work they undertake every day. What they really love about working at SiteMinder is the fun, friendly, relaxed environment and the camaraderie they share with their teams.
 
Many of the people we hire come recommended by friends or colleagues already working with us so we encourage you to check your network and see if someone you know is already part of the SiteMinder team to ask them directly about our culture.

We’re no longer a start up but we are still growing fast, which can be challenging. We’re pretty young in our journey and we are working on a variety of initiatives to support our staff in getting the best out of their SiteMinder career experience.
