An Insider's view of Mersive

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

Mersive’s work life balance is the epitome of work hard, play hard. We work extremely hard while we are here, but are encouraged to take the time we need outside of work to come back refreshed and ready to tackle the next project. Mersive helps us achieve the balance we need by giving us a generous PTO policy that we can utilize how we see fit.

What projects are you most excited about?

One of the most interesting projects I’ve worked on is what we called the Support Alert/Log Trigger. I enjoyed that I got to use data analysis to identify ‘regions’ where pods are located in order to determine if they’ve been offline for longer than a specified period of time and notify customers of this occurrence.
