What makes someone successful on your team?

At GigSmart we view individual success relative to the success of the product development team as a whole. Passion, collaboration, and having the drive to learn are some individual characteristics that ultimately lead to both individual and team success. Our team is always learning and pushing each other to innovate.

Tara

Senior Product Owner

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

Being accessible means creating a culture where team members know there is no such thing as being "interrupted." All feedback is welcome, and when it is received, I do my best to acknowledge and respond to it quickly. Doing so builds trust which helps improve the overall dynamic of our team.

Mitch Catino

COO

How does the company support your career growth?

The opportunities to grow as a developer seem endless with new challenges daily, and an incredibly smart and dedicated team to learn from. Whenever I've expressed interest to learn another part of the tech stack or business, GigSmart has provided me the time, tools, and training to do so.
