How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I first started at Tapcart when the team consisted of 4 people and I was brought on as the only designer. The mix of trust/responsibility paired with good vision/direction allowed me to learn more than I ever have in such a short time span. Top that with a work environment where we all learn from each other as well as have a great time together!

We constantly collaborate between different teams and support one another, which makes for an awesome company culture.
