An Insider's view of Core Scientific

What's something quirky about your company?

The depth of experience of the employees in Core Scientific is amazing, and their eagerness to share their knowledge, and expertise helped me as a newcomer. It is absolutely appealing and encouraging!

Arif Hossain

Data Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

I support the EVP of Data Centers on calendar management, and I take on special projects, and offer a vast range of support during deployments. Site visits help me see much of the action in construction, so I am able to provide feedback and assistance. I enjoy working with incredibly talented people at Core Scientific; both existing and newcomer!

Patricia Blair

Executive Assistant to Executive VP, Data Centers

What does career growth look like on your team?

I was initially hired as a temporary employee, and I was offered to work in warehouse inventory. Later, I applied for the HR Clerk position, which I did for over 2 years, and just recently I have been promoted as HR Generalist. I'm grateful for Core Scientific's openness to develop employees, so I will look out for more possibilities to grow!

Alisha Stafford

HR Generalist

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

I particularly like to be challenged, and Core Scientific has taken me out of the traditional tax role. Technology is cutting edge, and I helped develop the compliance aspect of taxation across the organization. Moreover, Core has alluded me to become savvy on legislation in the evolving laws in the tech sector.

Lynn Burgener

Chief Tax Officer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Our team collaborates with other departments and individuals through email, Slack, Zoom, Text, JIRA, ZenDesk and phone calls, and of course, if they're in the Austin office, we have an opportunity to interact with them directly face to face, which is even more exciting to interact with our colleagues in person.
