Pros: I work with smart, interesting, and fun people every day. I have the opportunity to tackle both business and environmental problems. Tons of other perks like beautiful office, cold brew, rooftop, etc... The flexible WFH/PTO policy is also quite generous. I feel so lucky to be working here while we are in this growth period!
Cons: I think the (small) problems are typical of any fast growing start-up, like figuring out ways to share information, collaborate across teams, and so on. Definitely making steps in the right direction though.
Hacktoberfest Day DC is all about connecting D.C. tech community members with local organizations' open source initiatives to contribute pull requests. Join folks from Women Who Code, DCJS, Black CodeCollective and more as we hack on open source projects.
We recognize how important the Open Source community is and strive to reduce the barrier for people of color to make real impact using code.
