An Insider's view of Bolt

What are some social events your company does?

We host a variety of events, ranging from game nights to cross-team hot wing challenges to in-office volunteering events. While remote, we’ve done a lot of trivia, Netflix parties (Groundhog Day, anyone?), poker tournaments for charity, and employee-led cooking/cocktail making classes. We try to have fun inclusive events for everyone at Bolt.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Currently, the app infra team is working on how we scale Bolt engineering. This is not just how we handle more load, but also how we make sure our engineering team scales. We are thinking about the next-generation infrastructure for Bolt. Making sure a team can build robust yet quickly extensible code is our big focus.
