Insider's spotlight

How does your team reward individual success?

Our team works to acknowledge and bring to fruition great ideas so they reach customers. Seeing how an individual’s work impacts a customer’s life for the better is the biggest reward. We also take the time to celebrate big team milestones, with champagne, to appreciate how far we’ve come.

Joe

Director of Design

What projects are you most excited about?

The product and engineering team is working on integrating with AWS which is very exciting. As a junior developer and someone that is new to the field of technology, I’ve had the rare opportunity to gain hands-on experience during this large project. Collaborating and problem solving with my fellow engineers has been a great learning opportunity.

How does the company support your career growth?

Shiftgig has been wonderful in supporting my career growth. I work with great leaders who invest their time in teaching me new skills and placing me into job functions that align with my strengths. During my time at Shiftgig, I’ve worked in many different departments and each time I feel supported in my knowledge and growth within the company.

Felicia

Customer Success Manager

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Each quarter, product and engineering steps away from our traditional sprint cycle and participates in a special innovation sprint. We embrace exploring new ideas that could impact the future of Shiftgig. We hold a pitch session, form teams, and a week later, demo our results. Oftentimes, our prototypes and learnings inform our roadmap.

Rick

Chief Technology Officer

What does your typical day look like?

Each day the product team does a daily check-in to catch up on yesterday’s accomplishments, today’s plans, and any blockers in the way of our goals. Our product development process is centered on close communication with internal and external stakeholders which enables us to discover problems and validate and build solutions effectively every day.
