An Insider's view of Optimizely
How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?
Optimizely is also a place where work-life balance is a real thing. Unlimited vacation means that I’m trusted to take time off when I need it. I’ve also been able to work remotely from Tahoe so that I can drive up when there’s less traffic, and from Boston so that I can spend time with my family.
What does your typical day look like?
I joined Optimizely to work on a product I loved using. It was fitting that my first project was fixing a pain point I had experienced as a customer! Not only was it satisfying to deliver a feature that I knew was going to help my colleagues at a previous company, but I was also able to use an awesome cloud native AWS tech stack to deliver it.
Sr. Software Engineer
What makes someone successful on your team?
Software engineering here isn’t about someone going off on their own with a problem and coming back with a solution. We design solutions as a team of individuals, each bringing their perspective to the table. I’ve found this way of designing has helped me grow as engineer over the years and to deliver the best results possible to our customers.
How do you empower your team to be more creative?
As a leadership team, we are deeply committed to creating a culture based on inclusion, experimentation, innovation, and feeling empowered to take risks. To be successful, we have to be exceptional performers. And to be exceptional performers, we have to have passionate people driving the way.
Chief People Officer
What are some things you learned at the company?
It inspires a lot of pride knowing that I work on the best in class experimentation product and one that brings real ROI to some of the world's largest global brands . I didn't realize how much I cared about products until I joined Optimizely.
