Our Employee Spotlight series takes the opportunity to highlight members of our team and to give a glimpse into our culture and what it’s like to work at Instawork. To highlight the diversity of our team, we’ve asked Shannon Norris, Sr. Sales Manager - Launch, to share more about her experience working at Instawork.
What do you do at Instawork and how long have you been with the company?
I've been with the company for almost two years. I started as a Sales Manager in Hospitality. I came on right after the pandemic when our hospitality sales vertical was only four Account Executives and myself.
I am still amazed by the growth of our business in such a short amount of time. I’ve recently taken on a role to help launch our new markets and expand our footprint across the U.S.
What initially attracted you to Instawork?
Our product, purpose and trajectory. I truly believe in what we are doing to create economic opportunity. I think our product is limitless and our team is incredible. I wanted to be somewhere where I could feel like I was able to create an impact and Instawork still embodies that for me.
What's your favorite part of your job?
I truly enjoy the impact I can have on my team and how that has a ripple effect on the rest of the organization, our product, Partners and our Pros.
What is one piece of “work from home” equipment you couldn’t live without?
My second monitor. I even bought an attachable second monitor for traveling when I can't haul my at-home one with me!
What's the most important thing you've learned since starting at Instawork?
How incredible having different opinions and ideas are. I love how diverse of an organization we have and I love learning what or how others think about our growth.
