Smartsheet is a place where people love what they do and are empowered to do their best work every day. We support one another and achieve our goals as a team, not as individuals. Regardless of role, team members are driven, entrepreneurial, and committed to making an impact by turning great ideas into action.

We’re as excited about AI as anyone, and our investment in the space speaks to how fundamentally it can change our product and technology in general. As we spoke about at our ENGAGE customer conference this year — in the keynote, no less — we are exploring ways to make teams more efficient and effective by leveraging AI at scale, and building it into the heart of our product, not just tacking it on around the sides.
