How does the company support your career growth?

Udemy provides me with daily opportunities to grow as an engineer. My manager genuinely cares about my career plan and professional growth. In every project that we’ve chosen for me to work on, I had the chance to improve my weaknesses and demonstrate my strengths. It is so important to feel valued at work, and Udemy has been doing a great job.

Senior Staff Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

My philosophy goes beyond normally scheduled one-on-ones, which I regard as simply guaranteed check points. I have a truly “interrupt me anytime” policy, so my staff feels comfortable enough to talk with me at any moment. My team is my work-family and, as with my own family, it is a top priority for me to be there to support them.
