Why Work Here?

Here’s What Our Employees Have to Say

“The culture is a huge part of that. Very bright and supportive community. Clear expectation from management and clear communication.”

“Very welcoming and accommodating. Everyone always available to help.”

“It’s a great place to work, excellent supporter of working from home, great teammates working alongside me, and everyone’s super friendly. Very fulfilling work too.”

“I’d have to receive three times the pay for the same workload to consider moving away from Helm Operations. Too many good people here I’d be leaving behind otherwise”

“It’s an open, fun work environment that offers employees incredible flexibility. The managers at Helm truly care about their employees and I think that has been apparent the entire time I’ve worked here… first in an entry level role, and now as a manager.”

“My manager has supported all my development while ensuring I can manage my workload.”

“Great company culture, cool problems to be solved and lots of opportunity to show your value and come up with your own solutions to these problems.”
