  • “I love that Braze embraces new ideas and empowers employees to bring their passions to the workplace, even if it is out of the realm of our day to day jobs. I wanted to truly make an impact at my next job, and Braze created the space for me to do so through DEI and Wellness initiatives supported by my colleagues.”
