An Insider's view of RapDev

What's something quirky about your company?

After standdown ends, people usually head downstairs to the "fun" floor where we have alcoholic beverages, a liquor cabinet, and even a keg on tap that gets regularly rotated to other beers and we can socialize over ping pong, ps4 games, darts, and much more. All around, I usually prefer being in the office over working from home.


Sr Datadog Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Being in a startup, I am sitting right next to engineers but not only. Sales, architects, solution engineers, we are all close by, which is very enlightening. Collaboration and communication are key at RapDev and part of our success story. It allows me to grow every day on my technical and non-technical knowledge and be a better project manager.


Project Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

RapDev for me was the perfect career move. When I was stagnating, they reached out to me with the promise of a path forward and upward - they haven't gone back on that. The horizontal hierarchy at RapDev means I can learn directly from the heads of each department as we all work jointly across all projects. The experience is invaluable.


Associate Project Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

RapDev is built on the efforts our team has put in - we wouldn't be where we are today without the hard-working, collaborative, and innovative team members we have. I'm proud to be part of a team that goes to any length to do what's right for customers, and that gets rewarded by our repeat customers for doing so. We built this company together.



How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My journey with RapDev began as an associate-level engineer. About six months later, I was promoted from associate level to engineer. I feel that there is an enormous opportunity for growth, both in taking on more responsibility as well as advancing one's own relevant skillset.
