Small, committed team working on real technology with a mission
Engineering (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 23, 2017
Small committed team working to decentralize communications through mesh-networking.
I like working here because the team here really cares about what they're building. If you like the idea of really "owning" what you do and can thrive in a sink-or-swim environment of other high achievers, then you'll like it here. If you'd rather take it easy or hide, or don't care about the mission, you will fail/hate it.
My average day is really self-directed with standup meetings in the mornings other ad hoc meetings. The CEO has a really clear vision/mission for the company and has done a good job recently of attracting excellent people to replace weak links. The team doubled in last year and now includes people from Qualcomm, BBN Raytheon, Alcatel, August, Makerbot, Intel etc.
In what affected me most, we had weak engineering leadership until late last year, which led to unnecessary emergencies due to bad planning. New engineering/product managers are excellent and probably best I've ever worked with
First employee has been here for 4+ years; a few left at 3-year mark for personal reasons to California, and there's a handful reaching 2 years - otherwise most people joined within last year like me. I feel like everyone on the team today is the best at what they do.
Oh - great benefits! 100 % of premiums are paid by the company for plans with low/no deductibles which I've never had before.
Catered lunch 2x week, excellent benefits, great mission, challenging work, really smart coworkers
Small team means everyone wears many hats (can be a pro!)
