One of my favorite things about GPC since joining is really seeing the culture. [It is] really important to the company to have community events and really just feel like a family overall. It is amazing to be such a global company, but it feels so small and tight knit. Everyone is approachable, [there are] company happy hours where you can just walk to the CEO and the Presidents, and it’s just so down to earth. [I’ve] never been at a place where people are so approachable.Jennifer Wade Senior Manager – Engineering Payments
The prospect of joining a new team and helping grow from the ground up, that was very attractive to me. Working with technology such as React and Google Cloud [was] very attractive to me.

Nobody else who I work with on my project looks like me, comes from a similar background to me, and I love that.Michelle Sollicito Principal Architect – Sales/Marketing
I have a lot of people ask me how I lead a team of engineers who are smarter than me. One of the things I love about…GPC is being humbled enough to be a small fish in a big pond and being surrounded by so many people who are so much smarter than me. The best thing I can do as [my team’s] engineering manager and their leader is just to get out of their way. That’s a lot of what I do here is I just get out of their way or I clear the way so they can innovate and be who they are.Sam Russo Engineering Manager – Item Master
