How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

One of the most enjoyable things about ringDNA is the work/life balance which is supported by my manager and leadership.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As an engineer on the platform team, it’s vital I know what teams are doing and what’s important to them. I listen to support stand-ups for customer updates and talk regularly to sales/marketing to see what is driving the needle or creating roadblocks. Being proactive helps ensure everyone feels comfortable coming to me with questions or issues.
