Insider's spotlight

What makes someone successful on your team?

We look for individuals with a strong sense of self, who are inquisitive and passionate about their work. Someone who is a self-motivated team player, who is also inspired by the impact their work has on the team is successful.

Every employee brings a level of passion with them to work, a willingness to take on a certain level of risk. We talk weekly about our values, our failures, and victories, making it perfectly okay to fail, but to make those failures learning experiences so that we can continue to improve and focus on (ninja style) execution.



I'm part of a team that genuinely wants to help me grow as an engineer. I'm challenged every day to build products with the latest technologies, such as machine learning, at massive scale. Everyone really feels like family, with a genuine investment in you, personally and professionally.
