An Insider's view of Gimbal

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

We face uncommon technical challenges that call for smart, hard-earned solutions. The marriage between location and advertising causes challenges that stem from sheer scale. Our systems generate a massive amount of daily events, which we ingest, enrich, and make extremely useful. While demanding, these challenges sharpen our engineering team daily.

Matt

Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Your voice matters, do more with less, and hard work truly pays off. Gimbal fosters an environment that challenges you to think differently and also speak up if you have ideas. Your role doesn't necessarily define you and if you can bring something new to the table, everyone is open to listening and learning from it.

Liz

Director of Marketing

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

Aside from an open-door policy, I make an effort to spend time with teams across the organization to understand what's happening in their world. Enabling the flow of information from team to team allows everyone across the organization to connect dots and make better informed decisions.

Matt

COO / CMO

How does the company support your career growth?

I find that the ability to seek and share knowledge is a standard practice at Gimbal. This allows natural growth within the company as well as within each employee's specific role. Senior leaders are not only willing to let others contribute to larger scale projects, but actually encourage it and promote it.
