Who We Are:

Leaders at, Boll & Branch, and Thinx use Nacelle to eliminate the typical maintenance costs and infrastructure complexities related to going headless while accelerating their time-to-market.

An Insider's view of Nacelle

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

I have been enjoying the W-L balance that Nacelle offers, as a remote-first company my hours are based on my local time. Nacelle wants its' employees to disconnect between workdays so there are no expectations that you answer emails or messages after hours. This allows you to refresh between days and come back to the 'office' feeling ready to work.


Senior Backend Developer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

At Nacelle we need to be able to ingest and store data from many different sources in a way that is reliable, scalable, and fast. Similarly, our APIs need to be able to deliver data with minimal latency. So a lot of our challenges are around designing and implementing systems that meet our goals in terms of scalability, reliability, and speed.


Senior Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

My goal is to train, mentor, and empower my teams. It all comes down to mutual trust and communication. It's exciting to see each team member stretch the limit of their capabilities and come to the table with new ideas and solutions. It's personally rewarding to then see these ideas come to fruition and be executed.


VP of Operations

What does your typical day look like?

It typically starts with a quick ~15-minute stand-up meeting. There will be meetings for grooming, planning each sprint, and there might be meetings about engineering decisions or proposals sometimes. The rest of the day will be researching + solving interesting engineering challenges and keeping the product team happy.
