An Insider's view of Calm

What are some things you learned at the company?

The most important thing I’ve learned at Calm is how to evaluate and scope a project so that it regularly delivers value for our company and stakeholders. As an engineer, it helps us prioritize when there’s a lot to do, effectively weight tradeoffs and evaluate requirements so i can see my contributions and feel proud of them.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

By making our team a safe space for creative ideas!
Within engineering, I help drive and facilitate projects that make our team happier and more productive! For example: making our interview process more junior friendly, improving our remote onboarding, and addressing tech debt etc.
