An Insider's view of Calm

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We’re a hard-working, collaborative team with ambitious goals, but Calm understands the importance of individual well-being and how that impacts how we show up at work. Calm fosters a supportive, remote-first culture that enables us to meet both our professional goals and personal interests.

What does your typical day look like?

As a working mom of 2, I’m grateful to work for a remote first company that gives me the opportunity to balance being a mom and also a career. My day starts with the Daily Calm so I can be completely present and effective. My favorite part of my job is connecting with a diverse array of talent who all have unique experiences that add value to Calm.

The most important thing I’ve learned at Calm is how to evaluate and scope a project so that it regularly delivers value for our company and stakeholders. As an engineer, it helps us prioritize when there’s a lot to do, effectively weight tradeoffs and evaluate requirements so i can see my contributions and feel proud of them.
