Oceanside has created a very casual work environment but you would be amazed at how much work this team will crank out. Further, the opportunities here are amazing, the executive team strongly believes in growing it’s employees and I feel I am a true testament to that – I started as an Inside Sales and Support Representative, low and behold 8 years later, I’ve had the opportunity to help lead the marketing initiatives.

What is your favorite Oceanside glass tile? This is so hard. All these products spin my mind on the daily. If I had to pick I would go dimensional field pieces like Flight and Blink and easily the ocean color palette – Bondi, Tide, Sapphire, and Tourmaline.
