An Insider's view of Lucky Day

What's something quirky about your company?

There's snacks everywhere. At any time of the day, you'll find someone going into the cabinet to find something to eat. This adds a sense of comfortability, a feeling of home while you're working. It also helps to spark conversation between coworkers. Food is a universal language that helps us bond and learn more about each other!

What does your typical day look like?

During our daily scrum meeting, we discuss what we will be working on, along with any issues/blockers we may encounter. My work is focused on a specific project. The work involved differs each day depending on what stage of a project I'm currently at. This keeps the job interesting because the nature of the work changes as a project progresses.

Ben Chen

Senior Software Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

I want every team member to be as nimble as possible, and that’s why we place such a big emphasis on learning. I encourage my team to take on side projects, so they can learn new skills in a hands-on manner and also grow with the company. This allows them to visualize where we’re trying to go and identify what our biggest technology hurdles are.



What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have an open office with a laid back feel. Everyone motivates and pushes each other to excel and expects the most out of one another while encouraging an open, honest and transparent environment. On top of that, the team enjoys taking snack breaks, going on walks, and getting coffee.
