An Insider's view of Affirm

What's something quirky about your company?

1 - In the early days, the sales team would strike a loud gong whenever they signed a deal, our engineering release emails for new features paled in comparison. One day an engineer brought in his tuba and in that moment, the deploy tuba was born, thoroughly one-upping the sales-gong. Now, several years later, tuba emojis are a company staple.

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

The integrations team interacts with many other teams across GTM, Ops, and Engineering. It's one of the best parts of being on this team because it makes the work we do varied and interesting. I'm most excited about working with those teams to define the right amount of process and ownership so that we are as productive as possible.

How does the company support your career growth?

One of the greatest things about working at Affirm is that everyone around you is invested in helping you to learn and grow. I have been so impressed by the support and encouragement I have received from everyone across the company in taking on new projects and exploring different areas of the business outside of my day to day.
