An Insider's view of Arcadia

What's something quirky about your company?

Arcadia's Got Talent (AGT) is an annual talent show that I won last year. The best part about AGT was that it encouraged me to work on something I am passionate about outside of work. All of the entries were amazing & I think it's really awesome that the company does things to bring people together and celebrate our passions outside of the office.


Engineering Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Every day is a little bit different, which I really love and helps keep me engaged! Most days I have a combination of phone screens and meetings with my hiring managers or team. I also help manage a lot of our brand partnerships that have projects through out the year and play a part in helping construct Arcadia's company culture as we scale.


Talent Acquisition Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

It's as easy as making time. I meet with my team members for one on ones to understand where their stressors are. Sometimes it's personal and I support with flexibility, time, or PeopleOps other times it's professional and these I tactically work with the team to coach or intervene.


Director, Engineering

How does the company support your career growth?

Arcadia is incredibly generous when it comes to career growth. I receive regular mentorship from my manager and leadership team. I also have a continuing education stipend that I use to take courses and attend conferences to further my skillset. My career path is mapped out and regularly adjusted with my professional interests and personal growth.
