Julie

Senior Accountant

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

On our Image Recognition team, we tackle all sorts of hard problems in the computer vision space. I'm allowed to be creative about how we meet our goals. This is very important in R&D since our concept of completion can be fuzzy. The process of discovery often leads us to rapidly change our perspective on how best to solve our business needs!

Mackinley

Senior Software Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Everyone is so smart, so friendly, and has such a strong work effort, that it’s motivated me to level up in all areas of my life! I’m more technical, have more business savvy, and I’m a generally more rounded person than I was 3 years ago.

What is your vision for the company?

We exist to reimagine how the workforce works. We believe there is a tremendous opportunity to make work less cumbersome and more fulfilling, so we strive to build software that is delightful and empowering for users to complete their everyday tasks. Further, our goal is to be the top workplace in Denver, made up of the best and brightest talent!

Matt

Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

On the Product team, we are exceptionally focused on the user at the other end of the code we write. When we get together for our grooming ceremonies, you'll hear us throw around the first names of our beloved personas like they are old friends, not a faceless customer. It keeps us grounded in the idea we are writing software that people are using!
