Customer Comes First
Clients first, Wizards second, HQ third, and everyone else is fourth.
Our company operates with a clear list of priorities, at the top of which, are our clients. Account managers know that they can leave a company-wide meeting if one of their clients needs something. It is understood that our customers are number one and come before anyone else. Our Wizards and partners come second which is why we do everything we can to make sure they feel welcome in our office. They are invited to go anywhere and make themselves at home. Many of our HQ meetings are focused on how to improve the experience for our Wizards and partners. HQ comes third, and then everyone else comes in fourth. What this means is that we don’t talk about or glamorize our investors and we don’t devote resources to create buzz in the press. No vanity. No clickbait marketing. At Eden, we stay focused on this hierarchy and always put our clients first.
Rapidly Growing Team
We are a rapidly growing startup that is just starting to expand nationally.
We are currently a 25-person company and plan to double our headcount in the coming year. It is a very special and exciting time to join Eden. This next chapter for us will let you see exactly how a company scales and orchestrates several moving parts. Eden is building a marketplace for the office and a suite of software so that people can run their offices more efficiently, which in turn creates an incredible amount of surface area. We will be entering new cities and building a number of new products including a ticketing service for office managers and Native apps for our Wizards, service workers, and clients (just to name a few). We are looking for full-stack engineers who want to build this company with us. If you want to learn more, shoot us an email!
We are feedback-oriented in every sense.
As an engineer, you’ll be working very closely with our CTO, Kyle. Together, you’ll outline weekly and monthly goals and have 1on1’s every week to talk about how you’re feeling, what you need, and how he can help. You’ll also sit in the same working area, so it’s easy to get and give feedback. Beyond the engineering team, everyone at the company has a monthly 1on1 with Joe, the CEO. He always leads every meeting with, “How are you doing?” and at some point, he’ll ask, “How can we make things better?”
If you want to join a meeting or phone call, you should.
As an example, our designer Elisha wanted to join a meeting that the product marketing team was having in order to learn more about the feedback they were receiving from a general manager we were working with. She wanted to be involved in that dialogue in order to incorporate his feedback into her design, and we’re glad she did. Something that we often say at Eden is, “We’re all going to die some day, so we have to make it count.” You owe it to yourself to build a company that inspires you. This isn’t a dress rehearsal so make it a place that you’re excited about going to everyday, where you can be your full self. Sharing your ideas and speaking your mind is how we create a company that we are all inspired by.
Actively Practices Inclusion
The company is 70% female and our leadership team is 50/50.
Our company’s gender ratio is pretty unheard of in Silicon Valley, even though our founders are both men. We are a feedback and learning-oriented company and we believe that having diversity on our team enriches communication and improves learning outcomes for all of our employees. Whether it’s true or not, it’s not about gender but how we can build the best place to work. If you join Eden, it means we value your ideas and opinions, and everyone wants to hear them. At the end of the day, we strive to empower each other and to create a better place to work, for everyone, Eden included.
Build with the latest and greatest.
Our stack includes GraphQL, React, React Native, TypeScript, and Ruby. We ship every day to our server as well as our web, mobile, and iPad apps. We’re committed to using new technologies to improve our development process and speed. A typical week looks like a quick sprint planning meeting to decide on which features we want to build, daily standups to measure our progress, and a high-degree of autonomy to build quickly.
We see truth in data.
The evolution of our company, starting as a B2C tech support company, transitioning to B2B tech support, and pivoting into the marketplace we are today, is evidence that we always follow the signal of data. Some of the leadership team have backgrounds in banking, private equity, and financial modeling, so naturally there is a focus on metrics. Every Monday, everyone at the company meets to share their weekly goal. You’ll never hear someone say, “I’m going to do market research this week,” because we only set discrete, quantifiable goals like, “This week, I am going to research 10 companies with a deliverable on Friday.”
We are small but mighty with only 4 engineers. Sometimes, we surprise even ourselves.
At a fraction of the size of some of our competitors, we have been able to build more products and more quickly push new features. Despite our size, we have already started to outpace our sole designer. Being well-rounded engineers using agile processes, we’ve truly created tremendous momentum. Our next hires will see entire projects through from ideation to execution, and experience the satisfaction of delivering a product used by many. Whether you’re a new CS grad or have a decade of experience, there’s a place for you here. Tweet, email, or drop by our office.
