This week I started my new role as Head of Development at Voxbone whose tag line is “Strangely Simple Cloud Communications”.
It’s a small company of 200 people, head-quartered in Brussels, who (in my opinion) are having an out-sized impact on the telecomms industry by bringing an API based approach to what has previously been a very manual, regulated, and incumbent-driven area.
In my role I get to work with a great team of developers located across Europe including in Ireland, Belgium, Romania, and Moldova, alongside our product, infrastructure, and other groups. We’re working with great customers who rely on Voxbone to power their own business communications, or use our service as part of their own offerings.
In week one, I’ve had a chance to talk with lots of folks across the company. Everyone from the most recent joiner (who also started this week) to the CEO has been kind, friendly, and excited about the chance to grow and evolve Voxbone as a company. Voxbone talk openly about their successes and challenges in bringing a diverse group of people into an inclusive environment, and my experience so far is that they live up to this, and are working on getting better.
Voxbone is a small company, but growing, so there are lots of opportunities if you’d like to come make some strangely simple products!
