An Insider's view of IGNA - tasty

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We’re in a fast-paced industry, but no matter how busy people get, no one’s ever too busy to help a colleague out. We’re surrounded by smart, driven people and the collaboration amongst the teams is the reason why we are constantly growing. Plus, there’s free food and puppies to get you through the day!

How does the company support your career growth?

Because we're on a relatively small team, I feel I'm able to make more of an impact. I often see features I've worked on reflected on the platform in real time: Something that's incredibly satisfying. And best of all, I get to learn from ridiculously talented senior engineers who have become not only mentors, but also close friends.
