User Experience Researcher (Redwood City)
WorkBoard pioneered the category of Active Strategy Management that empowers executives and employees alike. We saw the broken way that most companies align — zillions of PowerPoint decks and mind-numbing meetings, with most employees not knowing how they can contribute to strategy – and invented a better approach. We believe every team should be able to harness the power of an aligned organization, and our breakthrough SaaS solution helps companies achieve their strategic priorities in unison and at top velocity.

Leveraging the powerful Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) technique and our wicked powerful Strategy & Results SaaS Platform — we help fast-moving companies like Go1, Influitive, Cisco and Microsoft get radical clarity on strategic priorities for every employee.

WorkBoard is led by a successful serial entrepreneur whose last company was acquired by IBM; the company is well funded by GGV, Floodgate, M12, Workday Ventures, Opus Capital and Shea Ventures.
