An Insider's view of Ascent

What are some social events your company does?

Our leadership really believes in building and strengthening our community here at Ascent. We've had a day-long company outing to a baseball game. We have monthly team lunches, which are a good way to connect with colleagues over food. We also have movie outings and happy hours that we all enjoy together!

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

My team coordinates work that needs to be done by both people and machines. We do this by creating delightful interfaces/experiences for our users and by augmenting our workflows with machine learning to produce work that’s intuitive and efficient. This means my team gets to play with fun tech from the frontend all the way to the back.

Conrad

Senior Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Prior to joining Ascent, I used to believe "brilliance is evenly distributed but opportunity is not". Here at Ascent, irrespective of your gender, race or color, the opportunity to impact and change the world around you is evenly distributed and all anyone would require to succeed is the passion and desire to solve problems.

Sunkanmi

Software Developer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our job as a leadership team is to provide context, not solutions. The people working directly on a project are in the best position to make decisions, so we hire smart people and then trust them. We're here to support our teams and to make sure efforts are aligned across the company.

CTO
