Mike

Sr Program Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

Ensuring the reliability of our monitoring infrastructure often requires complex testing environments in which we can simulate tail-risk events occurring. Since coming aboard, I have learned how to effectively create these test environments which we use to test and harden our infrastructure.

Ryan

Site Reliability Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As a leader I prioritize responsiveness over real-time chat and other tools (pull / merge requests). I block multiple times during every day to catch-up on any influx of questions / inbound that requires a response. I live by Inbox Zero and let folks know if I will not respond for a bit and when to expect a response.

Drew

Head of Engineering

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

We do not have a strict 9-5 schedule, but rather something along the lines of: “do what you need to get done when you can.” The thing I’ve enjoyed most about this is that I’ve been able to shape my schedule according to what works best for me. When I’ve needed a break from work for whatever reason, my team & manager have been very understanding.
