Menaka Chang VP of People Ops
“At CB Insights, the People Ops team focuses on recruiting, supporting and developing employees. We take care of policies and compliance to ensure we check all the boxes, but the real fun is when we get to focus on the strategic work that supports people on the team.”
Founded in 2008 CB Insights is a machine intelligence platform based in New York City. Using machine learning to synthesize, analyze, and visualize millions of data points to give fast, fact based insights, CB Insights helps their clients make better decisions to capitalize on change. By hiring people who are happy, helpful, humble, and hungry, the company has grown strategically into a thriving organization.
Since Menaka joined CB Insights in 2014, the company has gone from just 25 employees to over 200. During this time of rapid growth, she quickly realized it was unsustainable to continue tracking all the important employee information in spreadsheets, and she was stuck with so many administrative tasks that she didn’t have any time to devote to people.
