An Insider's view of Earny

What’s the vibe like in the office?

From the first moment I signed my papers to work at Earny, our CEO said "welcome to the family" it has felt exactly like that. This team really treats each other like family. And Earny himself is like one more member of the team, who everyone cares deeply about. The team is small but mighty and has built incredible things together.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I am glad and proud that the company hired a woman as their first engineer. I've had tremendous growth working here as a Backend Software Engineer. The bots I've built are helping users get their money back, this is by far the coolest feeling! I've had the opportunity to work on so many different things which is really exciting to do at a startup.
