"It’s often said that variety is the spice of life, and I can wholeheartedly say that there has never been a dull moment working at Tucows and I’ve had the pleasure of working with some amazing and talented people along the way.
When I started as a customer advisor back in 2013, I always felt like I had a “seat at the table.” My position on the org chart was never an obstacle or a source of contention. I remember attending stand ups and sprint planning sessions and demos. I remember interacting with Product, Engineering, and Marketing teams. I remember going for lunch with the VP of Marketing. I never felt like I had to stay in my lane - I was always encouraged to speak up, to contribute, to participate and it was always received with respect and appreciation.
Now, working for Wavelo 8.5 years after I started with Tucows, I am so passionate about curating a similar experience for my team: making sure they have access to people that can help them, asking them for their opinions, letting them take the wheel and go for a spin, letting them make mistakes and learn from them. I trust my team. I love that my team brings their authentic selves to work every day and that is what makes us so unique. Everyone has so much to offer and everyone deserves a chance.
People have different definitions of “teamwork”, but we embody it every day in everything we do."
