An Insider's view of Mode

What's something quirky about your company?

We love goats! Marshawn The Goat is our mascot. At Mode, you might hear folks refer to goals as “Goats” or “GOATs".

Meng

Senior Product Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Mode is full of brilliant, friendly people who take initiative. We ask questions in public channels so anyone with interest can pitch in, and everyone else who quietly had the same question can learn about it too. For larger projects, we’ll officially provision people to a cross-functional team so they can tackle the work together.

Brittany

Senior Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I'm proud to be a part of a diverse, intelligent team with kind people. We have fostered a fun, collaborative and transparent environment that enables innovation from solving business problems to addressing tech debts. Engineers present their ideas in product sessions, hackathons, brainstorming sessions to implement & make our product best-in-class

Raji

Engineering Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We’re introducing a new Visualization engine that gives more power and control to the user. It uses WebAssembly behind the scenes, so it’s fascinating to see how the latest in technical developments can help us improve our user experience. As we develop this new version, it also gives us a chance to take back some learnings to existing offerings.
