An Insider's view of Avant

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is positive and encourages fun, but also strives for growth through hard work and innovation. I would also say Avant is a “come as you are” environment where people are able to bring their whole selves to work, which leads to diverse viewpoints and great ideas.


Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Because of the nature of my role, I’m constantly collaborating and working with other teams. Program management is like being a traffic cop, at the intersections of every vertical within the business unit; I stop and start traffic, provide estimates on travel time, and route drivers down the right street if they get lost.


Customer Success Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

The new projects we launch for our bank partners are really exciting because of all the learning opportunities they present. These projects require a substantial amount of collaboration between teams, so everyone is growing and learning from one another as we go. It's pretty awesome!


Tech Quality

What does your typical day look like?

70% of my day is working on code. 20% of my day is spent on unblocking other junior engineers or reviewing code. 10% of my day is in meetings. 100% of my day is spent having fun! =)
