An Insider's view of Basis Technologies

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Instead of balancing work and life, it’s about blending the two. As a parent, I may need to leave for part of the day or before 5. Everyone here understands and I don’t feel guilty. Even if I’m not sitting at my desk from 9-5, my work and my team's work will still be done on time. Basis is giving me the opportunity to live the best life I can.

Matt

Senior Director, Financial Planning

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm excited about evolving our data integrations because it is through integrations that we can automate workflows for all major channels and enable machine learning to solve complex problems at scale! I love discovering what we can accomplish through the power of data, automation, and artificial intelligence. This is the present and the future.

Juan

Director, Product Management

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I began my career at Basis Technologies in 2017 as an intern on the Research & Insights team. Since then, I have grown to become the Director of Research. I credit much of my success to the opportunities my manager has presented to me. She is an amazing mentor who challenges me and constantly encourages growth, which makes me thrive at Basis.

Maggie

Director, Research & Insights

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

One of the reasons the team is enabled to be more creative is that I don’t assume I know all the answers. I love an environment where team members come to a discussion to bounce ideas around and the magic as a path forward is co-created.

Sr. Systems Engineer (Remote Optional)

The Production operations team is responsible for all product related infrastructure. We think it’s important that a single team manages the entire lifecycle of infrastructure from development to production. This helps us create reproducible environments with very little variance as code moves through the various environments on its way to production. As a member of the team you’ll be responsible for helping us maintain and improve that infrastructure. One of the ways we improve is by automating as much as possible. As a manager, I track the amount of TOIL work the team is doing and try to keep it below 20% of all ticket volume. (And we try to reduce that percentage limit every quarter as well) This keeps us away from busy work and instead focusing on interesting problems. You’ll probably spend more time in a code editor than a Bash shell. You’ll also work with developers on a variety of tasks from troubleshooting production issues, to aiding in design decisions for new features and services. We tend to also lead the discussions around monitoring. You’ll work with development teams to help coach them on the kind of metrics we need, building actionable alerts and visualizing these metrics in a dashboard. These conversations usually go pretty smoothly, but sometimes there might be a disagreement. Being comfortable providing input and supplying supporting arguments is a necessary skill to be successful in this position. We like strong opinions, loosely held.
