  • A team of incredibly capable and dedicated peers, all the way from engineering to product management and customer support.

  • Growth and mentorship. We believe in growing engineers through ownership and leadership opportunities. We also believe that mentors help on both sides of the equation.
  • A stable, collaborative, and supportive work environment. We work in an open environment, work together to get things done and adapt to the changing needs for the team. We keep it real by being open and honest. We are a collaborative team that understands the value in open communication.
  • Balance. We don't expect people to work 12-hour days. We want you to be successful outside of work too. We trust our colleagues to be responsible with their time and commitment and believe that balance helps cultivate a positive environment.
