An Insider's view of System1

What are some social events your company does?

One thing that System1 really prides themselves on is company culture. We want everyone to feel like family at the company and nothing brings people together better than our social events.
I enjoy attending events like LunchNLearns, team happy hours and anniversary or holiday parties because I learn more about my teammates outside of the office.

Online Marketing Analyst

What does your typical day look like?

I definitely never have the same day twice! I truly look forward to going to work and a big part of that is the variety of projects I get to work on and people I get to work with. While I love digging in on the latest anomaly in the data, I’m also a people person, and this role is really the perfect balance of screen time and face-to-face time.

How does the company support your career growth?

Since joining System1, I've grown in both my technical abilities as well as my interpersonal abilities. I've been given the opportunity to steer a complex migration that spans across teams and then provided with the freedom to pursue solutions that have a real impact on the daily operations of our engineering team.

DevOps Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started out at System1 as a data analyst. But as I discovered performance bottlenecks, I enjoyed digging deeper into how our systems were built, and even made small contributions myself. Since then, I've been able to learn from my colleagues while using on-the-job training to grow my career, now as a software engineer. Never stop learning!
