Employee Spotlight: Meet Kimberly

Ashley Jezek | October 29, 2021

We interviewed one of our product design team leads, Kimberly, to learn more about her Paycom journey.

Describe what you do.

As a product design team, we are the creative problem solvers who make sure the user experience of our products meet the needs and expectations of our clients. We are most known for our design mock-ups, but we do so much more than that behind the scenes. We create a user’s full journey through our system to make sure their Paycom experience is seamless, efficient and consistent; while also creating beautiful designs. We are in charge of not only creating good experiences for our clients, we are also the protectors of our design systems and branding within our products.

What is your favorite thing about your team? 

It’s hard to pinpoint one favorite thing about my team because there are so many! We have such a fun, supportive and motivating team dynamic. Everyone on the design team is so close-knit. We are really good friends both inside and outside of work. Our team is innovative, collaborative and very passionate about what they do. It is always amazing to see the work that our team accomplishes!

What advice would you give a new employee for being successful at Paycom?

Definitely to do some in-company networking with people you don’t normally talk to or work with. Don’t be siloed into just knowing people in your department. Meet people in other areas so that you always have an expert on hand to answer questions and collaborate with. This not only gives you more friends to say hi to in the hallways, but allows you to build rapport in the company.

What’s the one word you would choose to describe Paycom, and why?

Collaborative. Paycom is made up of so many diverse employees with a variety of skill sets, strengths and perspectives that when everyone comes together, great things are achieved. I have had many opportunities for collaboration at Paycom, and it is what keeps our product fresh and innovative.

What is your greatest accomplishment at Paycom?

My greatest accomplishment at Paycom was being able to design ground-breaking functionality in our learning module. Knowing that the products I designed are being used by clients today and making their lives easier is a huge accomplishment and something I am very proud of.

What makes you proud to work at Paycom?

The work we do creates such positive impacts on our clients and their employees’ lives. We truly are here to help people by simplifying their day-to-day routines, while also saving them time and money.

What hobbies do you enjoy in your free time?

I love to paint! Currently, I am working on a lot of paint-pouring projects and nature paintings. I also love to travel, take road trips and play volleyball.

If you could eat only one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

This is the hardest question for me because I am definitely a foodie, but if I had to pick one meal, I think I would choose crawfish etouffee or any meal with crawfish. A close runner up is sushi!
