We’ve toured the country playing music, performed SOC and ISO audits, and run professionally. We are a team of pet (and human) parents, entrepreneurs, and amateur bread bakers. While we’re proud of our collective personal and professional accomplishments, we believe what makes us most impressive is how each member of our team embodies Aptible’s company values.
We take our values seriously and are constantly blown away by the degree to which our team lives by them. As one of many examples, we measure commitments through company-wide OKRs that are then translated into OKRs at the team level. Those team level OKRs are then divided into weekly/sprint level goals. We hold each other accountable by having daily syncs, and as part of the larger Aptible organization, during our weekly all-hands meetings where we discuss how each team and the company are tracking towards our goals.
Everyone at Aptible loves the mutual support and camaraderie of a strong team that wins together. We measure our commitments carefully and hold each other accountable, which means we’re able to deliver more to our colleagues and customers in the long run. We fail often and early, and learn from it. We value and respect teaching as the best way to learn, and make time to share information openly. We think and talk a lot about how we can improve, and work hard at it. We ask “why?” a lot in order to understand root causes.

Co-founders Chandan and Jon started CoinTracker in 2017, when they were trying to track their hobby crypto investments and couldn't find a good platform to do so. “We literally had 15+ wallets, exchanges, and a Google Sheet trying to keep track of all of our transactions. It was a disaster,” says Chandan. “We added formulas, Google app scripts, and eventually it took two minutes for the page to even load. We knew we had to build something better.” It was a problem that extended not just to those casually investing in crypto, but also to more serious investors. Chandan and Jon wrote a post on reddit about how they quit their jobs at Google to focus on solving this problem by building a best-in-class product. Before that, Jon built and scaled TextNow from zero to 200 million downloads.
Another impressive team member is Shehan, our Head of Tax Strategy. He’s one of the few CPAs in the country who is an operator and expert on cryptocurrency taxes. Shehan was excited about establishing himself as a leader in the field and building a public image for himself and crypto taxes – and we’ve encouraged him every step of the way. He operates like an entrepreneur within the company, and his passion has led to great results. For instance, you can check out several of his articles on our blog, or find him on Twitter, where he’s built a dedicated following. He’s also taken the initiative and successfully landed some critical partnerships for us, including this deal with Wolters Kluwer (the largest tax professional software provider in the world), to help tax practitioners better serve cryptocurrency clients.
While a person’s pedigree and resume aren’t what impress us most, it’s worth mentioning that several of our team members are seasoned in building companies from the ground up. We’re humbled to work alongside folks who were early employees at Coinbase (#2), Kik (#2), Zapier (#17), and other great companies like Airbnb, Apple, Google, and Shopify.
A sizable portion of Brex’s employees are former founders and seasoned executives. We are incredibly proud to attract and support individuals who have ambitions beyond “just having a job.” No matter what your future career goals are, we do our best to support you in developing the skills you want and giving you the opportunities you need to progress.
Not only have many of our current team members started companies in the past, but many go on to start companies together after their time at Brex. Your colleagues are YC alums, experienced fintech executives, and future founders – this may very well be where you find your co-founders.
Last, but certainly not least, we are most impressed by the diversity amongst our colleagues. We believe the best people come from all backgrounds and locations. We are a remote-first company that hires across time zones and countries (Canada, USA, Brazil currently) making sure we optimize for skill and talent instead of location. A huge percentage of the company (including our founders!) is working in a country they didn’t grow up in! As a result, we put a strong emphasis on immigration support.

Enable immigrants to use their data to land on their feet
San Francisco, CA or New York, NY
We are only as great as the sum of our parts and believe that every individual at Nova makes a meaningful contribution in knowledge, expertise, skill, personality, and/or perspective. We go above and beyond to find talent from diverse places. At Nova, you'll find people coming from not only top schools but also non-traditional backgrounds.
We’re on a mission to help immigrants gain representation in the financial sector, and no one understands the problem better than our founders. Loek, Misha (CEO), and Nicky (COO) met and started Nova while they were at Stanford. As immigrants themselves, they were excluded from the financial system in the U.S., which made it incredibly hard to do things like build credit and sign a lease. For all of us, working at Nova is more than a job – we believe in the mission, and many of us have also felt firsthand the pain points we are working to solve. As one example, Damira shares her story as a former lawyer and refugee, and why she’s at Nova.
Since Nova’s founding, we have assembled an amazing team of investors and advisors. Current and former coworkers have brought experiences from Adobe, Affirm, Bain, Carta, Credit Karma, Docker, Dropbox, Goldman Sachs, Google Ventures, Kiva, McKinsey, Zenefits, and more.
As a Novan, you’ll be able to advance your career by connecting with experts through our community of industry leaders and investors, including Y Combinator, First Round, General Catalyst, Index Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, Canapi Ventures, Sound Ventures, NYCA Partners, Moderne Ventures, Core Innovation Capital, CFSI, and SVAngel.
Pragmatism is highly valued in our engineering org. For instance, knowing when to build versus buy. We research and think carefully about when to use libraries, frameworks, and external partners and when to invest our time to build our own. We compare options, knowing that for all non-trivial problems there likely exist multiple solutions, and that not all solutions are created equal. Being pragmatic is key. By utilizing technology that is built and maintained by other people, we can focus on what we do best: building in-house solutions to help our users gain clarity for all of their financial decisions.
While NerdWallet has grown in size, we maintain that we are still “One Engineering Team.” We spent nearly 6 months openly brainstorming, discussing, and collaborating to crystallize our engineering values and culture. This is just one aspect of how we stay unified as we scale.
We are proud to have an open culture of sharing and collaboration. We are constantly learning from one another. Engineers are readily available to help each other in a variety of ways, from our supportive #engineering Slack channel to our platform teams running live support on-call, to lunchtime conversations about an engineer’s latest vim revelation. We have thriving frontend and backend engineering groups with engineers who geek out over things like the finer points of site performance and the differing architectures for a data store. Participation happens at all levels, from our VP of engineering giving a tech talk on the architecture of Pac-Man to our new grads giving presentations to the engineering team about the refactor that they worked on. NerdWallet engineers lift each other up while continually raising the bar for themselves. We believe that we have an obligation to be better tomorrow than we were today.
We feel lucky to have a unique team comprised of former and future founders. Team members have raised venture funds, started and raised money for their own companies, been involved in acquisitions and IPOs, worked at early-stage startups that have become massive companies … the list goes on. While these credentials certainly aren’t required, it’s an added benefit that you’ll get to work closely with people who have a deep understanding of the industry and are excited to share their knowledge.
Developer-friendly APIs to automate trusted decisions about every business

We believe diverse perspectives and experiences are critical to building great technology, and we’re assembling the team to prove it. Enigma is made up of former startup founders, interns-turned-employees, academics-turned-engineers, and engineers-turned-data-scientists. Over time, we've learned that the only thing more important than experience is a commitment to finding deeper understanding through data.
Having a unique group of people working together means that learning and collaboration are critical to a healthy and thriving company culture. We have frequent lunchtime learning sessions, weekly company-wide squad presentations to share recently shipped projects, and ongoing thoughtful discussions in our #engineering and #datascience Slack channels. For slightly less thoughtful (but no less interesting!) conversations, there are channels such as #random for discussion on recent news articles, requests for cat sitters, furniture debates, and questions that don’t seem to fit anywhere else (“do you consider stores like WalMart and Target supermarkets?”).
At Qualia, we’re committed to ensuring engineers feel both challenged and supported. Not only are our engineers talented programmers with unique backgrounds, but they are also incredibly accomplished and humble people with a wide variety of interests. The team is made up of former founders (Razvan Popa), engineering leaders (Alla Rozenfeld), and developers from all types of backgrounds and industries. As an example, in addition to our three technical co-founders, Jack Lukic, the creator of Semantic UI, is our VP of Design.
Although we’re temporarily remote during COVID-19, we’ve continued to foster an environment that encourages curiosity, learning, and mentorship so our engineers remain connected and engaged, even when we don’t have time together face-to-face. In addition to interactive onboarding tutorials (featuring a gravity simulation and security challenges) to help new hires get up to speed, we also have engineers give educational talks every Thursday on any topic of their choosing. We’ve learned about everything from Kolmogorov complexity theory to models of existential risk, and, more recently, the art (and mathematics) of origami!

To give an example, we can highlight Tony the latest person to the developer team. Tony has worked at a few startups before Peergrade, including another YC company. He has contributed to more than 100 open source projects and authored a book on tmux (The Tao of tmux). We believe more in great ambition than in a great CV, and value intelligent people with ideas. If you are really good at what you are doing, why should you come work at Peergrade? We would love to work with you, learn from what you know and help support you in shaping our product, our culture, our vision and our company. You would get a lot of freedom, we will never bug you down with any bureaucratic tasks and we would focus all of our effort on making you as effective as possible.

Our employees all have different work and life experiences. For example, Joy previously worked in advertising, while our other Head of Trainer Development, Crystal, has a background in the education space. That said, we have one important thing in common: we all have a strong passion for life and helping others.
Diversity is paramount to our success as a team, and we hope to continue learning from each teammate's unique life experience as we grow. Our culture is tight-knit and we want the engineering team and any new hires to be part of that. For example, recent events included themed virtual happy hours, Netflix watch parties, and stipends for events by location. Last year, we flew all of our remote employees to NY to join us in HQ for a holiday party at the office. We hope that once the world returns to business as usual we can enjoy future events together as well.

One of the best examples of humility comes from our CEO, Spenser. He recently pushed something without involving everyone’s input, and as soon as people spoke up to say that they didn’t feel heard, he fully acknowledged the mistake and worked to reach a consensus that everyone was happy with. For many of us, this set an important precedent to always make sure your peers feel heard and to speak up whenever you don’t feel like you were heard.
When it comes to hiring, we don’t over-index on any particular trait. “Well, except for maybe the ability to self-reflect” if you ask hiring managers like Ryan Kahn. “I’m most impressed by candidates who are introspective and can actually share weaknesses, not just weaknesses poorly disguised as strengths.” While technical skills are important, we also care about kindness, humility, and empathy.
When you join Amplitude, you’ll be exposed to all teams during your first month so that you know exactly how each team is integral to the company’s success. There are many moving parts and having empathy for the various roles in your organization leads to better collaboration and better outcomes.
Last, but certainly not least, we’re proud to work among people who are continually pushing themselves on both a personal and professional level. We have a yearly learning stipend, onsite career coaching, and mental health awareness workshops. There are also in-house coaches to help managers become the best managers possible. We know (from experience…) that people often leave and join jobs not because of the company, but because of managers, so we’re fully invested in getting this as right as possible.
There are so many wonderful people at Amplitude that you’ll be able to meet even if you don’t directly work with them – we have an array of employee resource groups (ERGs) that include everything from Product Queens (for women in product development) to Slow Running (for, well, slow runners) for you to find and connect with them.

Location shouldn’t be a barrier to joining our team – we’re always looking for the best talent. Leapfin engineers live all over the world including places like California, Canada, India, and Argentina. In fact, very few of us are in the Bay Area anymore. We were remote-friendly before the pandemic, and we’ve made it work so well that we’ve actually decided to toss the office altogether and be fully distributed. Feel free to work wherever you’re the happiest and most productive! We want to succeed as a team, but that means seeing our employees succeed individually as well. Eventually, we’d love to build a Leapfin alumni network, with access to top-notch engineers.
We bring together domain knowledge across multiple fields and are truly innovating at the bleeding edge of technology. You feel honored to be sitting to the person next to you and you’re glad they’re on your team.
Above all, there is a tremendous amount of humility on our team. Everyone is so approachable and happy to sit down with you to explain something or help you debug some code. Even our CEO and co-founder, Peter Chen (who was an instructor at UC Berkeley) enthusiastically hosts Q&As and leads reading groups to promote knowledge sharing. It is wonderful to work with smart people, but a completely different thing when they are the kind of people who are eager and willing to help up-level everyone around then.

Angazans tend to be quietly impressive. You’d never guess that we’ve built autonomous robots, designed the Tesla UI, helped scale Yahoo 14x, contributed to the Linux kernel, established Grameen’s Kenya operations, or been named to Forbes’ “30 under 30” list.
In fact, typing out that list felt painfully and distinctly non-Angazan, and we’d be just as happy never to do it again. Angazans come from a broad base of backgrounds, but we're all bound together by our shared goal. Angazans all join Angaza for the same reason. Most Angazans have the ability and privilege to choose from a variety of professional options, but the only thing you’ll hear us talking about is how we can solve the problems in front of us.

We have been lucky to surround ourselves with great individuals. Everyone on our team is exceptionally talented in their respective fields, and this statement extends to our advisors. From an operating perspective, each person has been at small startups and seen success (acquisitions) to building bigger companies.
1 Open Positions
We are backed by some of the most influential investors and highly respected VCs in the world. We have a smart, sharp set of advisors who are deeply engaged in seeing us succeed. Insofar as our team, some of us have worked at the great tech giants and influential disruptors, while many others have joined us from taking an off-the-beaten path or after running their own things.
Take Justin, our lead web engineer – before becoming an engineer he was a 2nd grade teacher. Or Chris, another one of our iOS engineers – he plays a seemingly infinite number of instruments! Molly, our senior brand designer, formerly worked at a boutique book binder and still practices the art of bookbinding by hand. Daniel, our product designer, is creating a series of sculptural art and just dropped his newest single on Spotify. Campbell, Joe’s executive assistant, designs wildly oversized pillows in the shape of hands.
More than any number of external factors though, all of us are here to build something special and enduring. The bottom line is that you’ll be joining an incredible group of people with an incredibly broad range of backgrounds and interests. Every single person has something to share with one another.
Here’s the full team:
We are proud of our collective experience and, most importantly, how committed we all are to our company’s four core values (SEEK):

Leading Software-Powered Freight Forwarder
San Francisco, Bellevue, Amsterdam, and Shenzhen
We’re driven by a collective desire to change trade and have fun doing it. Our leaders have deep domain knowledge, founded multi-million dollar startups, and managed teams handling hundreds of millions of dollars in assets. They’ve mastered the logistics industry and know how to lead us down the right path.
Our engineers come from a variety of backgrounds, and we take special pride in that. We have seasoned engineers from large, successful tech companies, who bring industry best practices and high standards. We also have product-minded ex-founders, brilliant newcomers, and more. Take Levi, for example, who taught himself how to code! We love having a diverse group on our team, and hope you’re the next to join us!
