An Insider's view of Ibotta

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The best part about Ibotta is the people that work here. It's humbling to be able to work with such talented and experienced team members who are all working towards a collective mission. I've been able to learn so much from my colleagues both on a professional and personal level, and they are 100% the reason that I enjoy coming into work everyday.

Prachi

Senior Account Executive, Business Development

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

For general questions or blockers, the engineering community is incredibly active and supportive on specialized Slack channels to get engineers unblocked. On project development cycles, my Project Manager sets meetings with relevant stakeholders as needed for planning and ongoing feedback cycles.

Becca

Platform Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started Ibotta as a mid-level software engineer with a few years of experience; within two years I had been promoted to a Senior Engineer and was recently promoted to Staff Engineer at the beginning of 2020. I’ve learned so much about software development and am excited to now be in a position responsible for helping to spread that knowledge.

Alex

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Weekly 1:1s with all of my direct reports and minimum monthly coffee/lunch/walk with anyone who is indirect. We also leverage "Donut" (an app through Slack) across the Marketing team. This promotes rapport building and open conversations.
