An Insider's view of Maxwell

What are some things you learned at the company?

We have the chance to learn about all kinds of tech. On any given day, I might add features to our various Rails apps, update a .NET API layer to support some legacy software, or add to our component library using cutting-edge JS. Add a sprinkling of devops and some machine-learning experiments and the opportunities for growth are abundant!

Xavier

Senior Software Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Every quarter each team makes a Big Bet. The bar is high: a big investment that could fail, but if successful would be a step-function change for Maxwell. We all know we're here to innovate and own the future. So we celebrate failures along with wins. If we're not failing, we're not learning, and we're probably not winning either.

John

Co-Founder & CEO

What's something quirky about your company?

We have a floating "Powder Ski Day" that we can use whenever we want. Got to love the company-wide appreciation for fresh powder :p
