An Insider's view of Flo Technologies

How does your team reward individual success?

We use Bonusly to grant each other bonuses called Floes using Slack when we want to appreciate a teammate for something that also reflects our core values. We also take time at each Town Hall to do shout-outs across the organization so we can publicly recognize each other for our good work.

What does your typical day look like?

At Flo I love getting to work with global teams from LA, Argentina, Russia and Taiwan every day. We make good use of Slack and video chats to stay connected and ensure that the teams are making progress 24/7. Meetings at the beginning and end of every day to transfer information are very important to us.
