An Insider's view of Nerdery

What’s the vibe like in the office?

What I appreciate the most is the solution-focused attitude. Projects inherently have risk and problems will happen. When they do, there is no energy wasted on assigning blame. Everyone involved, from president to engineer, asks 'how can we solve this?' and 'how can we learn from it?' We solve it and move forward as a whole.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

All efforts are collaborative and the project is a partnership between Nerdery and the stakeholders. It's invigorating to see how committed everyone on my team is to the success of the project. The people here approach problems with a contagious enthusiasm every time I hop off a call, I'm pumped to tackle whatever challenge is on my plate.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I feel that my job is to hire really talented people and then get the heck out of their way. At The Nerdery we are always encouraging our teams to build on their curiosity through office projects, meetups, training and more. My role in this is to be the advocate for our Nerds in supporting this growth.

Gregg Walrod

What is your vision for the company?

My vision for Nerdery is that as we invent a future that works better for all, we are also building the capabilities of our Nerds and that we deliver exceptional client value. I want to be a company that produces results that much larger companies would envy.
