An Insider's view of RedShelf

What are some social events your company does?

Our development team gets together outside the office once per quarter with things like bowling nights, baseball games and water taxi trips to Chinatown. I try to host dinner parties every few months -- sometimes just for my immediate team, and sometimes a cross-team dinner to mix things up. Hoping for a company-wide Segway tour sometime soon, but

Senior Front-End Software Developer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We’re constantly collaborating with other dev teams in the company through shared github repos, slack channels and of course some inside jokes. We also work closely with teams outside of the dev department on various projects, including improvements to our book processor and the rollout of new product features.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

RedShelf is still a relatively small company, so even as a junior to mid-level developer I’ve been able to take on more responsibility, more quickly. My experience has become much more varied, instead of just focusing on a single type of skill that I might gain at a larger corporation.

Full Stack Developer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

It's critical that you encourage an environment of experimentation. People should never be punished for taking risks or making mistakes as long as they're learning and growing. As a product-focused company, the creativity for new ideas exists when your team is comfortable with failure and understands that success can be measured by what we learned.

Scott

CTO

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Coming from a very corporate environment, RedShelf is a breath of fresh air for me. Driven, like-minded people working together to change education, plus a fun office space, create an environment that makes you want to go to work every day.
