"I joined the team because I knew I wanted to join a fast growing tech company. But I've stayed because of how they value their employees and customers. I'm always being challenged, surrounded by great people, and the internal mobility is by far the best I've experienced."

“I have been promoted multiple times in the year I have been here, so you really feel valued here and it is shown to you in a tangible way. You know that your hard work is paying off. Personally it helps you push yourself out of your comfort zone, and grow into a professional."
