An Insider's view of Dave Inc.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We've got a pretty fun-loving, eclectic group in the office. Everyone comes from totally different backgrounds and is unapologetically themselves, which I love.
People here also care a lot about what they do. I feel like I'm able to go to anybody on the team for help solving a problem. It's an atmosphere of open communication and collaboration.

Ryan

Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The Engineering team at Dave is extremely collaborative. Our open office plan allows for constant communication and feedback. Our mobile app developers are spread out across multiple teams within Engineering, but we all work on the same code base. We have bi-weekly “syncs” to go over any new conventions in our code, and to discuss new ideas.

Lauren

Tech Lead

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

It was amazing coming into a company with leaders that provided me with the tools and guidance to set me up for success, and then let me run with it from there.

Dave has empowered me to drive the change I wish to see, and that has come with the opportunity to scale my own team to push the boundaries of the status quo.

Jackson

Marketing Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I was lucky to join Dave as the first QA engineer back in April 2018 and have been extremely supported by engineering leadership since the beginning which enabled me to grow into a QA Manager role & eventually transition into Project Management! I've always imagined myself in the role I am in today as a PM, thanks to the amazing team at Dave.
