Company Culture

On the tech side, we like people who communicate clearly, communicate early, and communicate often. We're very big on communication and like written communication for outlining large ideas and most day to day communication occurs over Slack.

We also have in-person meetings 1 – 2x/week to dive deep on complex architectural issues and get through questions that are team-wide issues. Breakouts are encouraged and we love seeing two engineers at a screen working through a hard problem together when collaboration is needed.

Lastly, we want people who stress the details because that’s what enable us to be truly extraordinary as a company. From UI/UX to backend financial management which requires project-wide logical consistencies, attention to detail ensures that we avoid hemorrhaging money especially as we process hundreds of millions of dollars through our growing pipeline of clients.
