An Insider's view of CityBase

How does your team reward individual success?

We have an awesome rewards platform called Bonusly that allows us to give points to our peers for helping out with things like code reviews,  organizing office events or volunteering for a good cause. The cool thing is we can convert our points into things like Amazon and Chipotle gift cards.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We believe in being accessible to one another: if you have a question or need help from the development, support, or hardware teams, you can always ask and expect their support. We have an easygoing vibe. People don't micro-manage. This atmosphere has allowed me to own my projects and to really grow.

I’ve learned new skills on the job while collaborating with every team in the organization. Working in a lean and growing team means that every role in the organization can make valuable contributions to our future.

We make government easier for everyone. Offering a single platform that gives cities everything they need to deliver services.

Before Covid, we would have an annual family picnic and a winter holiday party, as well as events such as Cinco de Mayo, LGBTQIA Pride Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, a Lollapalooza party, etc. Now that we are remote, we’ve had virtual scavenger hunts, trivia, book club, yoga and mindfulness classes, and other creative ways to keep connected to the team.
