An Insider's view of Albert

What are some social events your company does?

Our leaders truly understand the value of letting loose and getting to know each other on a personal level. In addition to an awesome overnight retreat that we do once a year we also do monthly events. Sometimes we geek out with a private trivia night, find balance with a meditation session at our local yoga studio, or volunteer in our community.

Office Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

A requirement when working with the world's largest financial institutions is world-class practices around your data systems. We take great pains to ensure that our users' personal and financial data stays private. Helping to distill truth from our data while maintaining the integrity of our data policies is a challenge I love working on.
