An Insider's view of Fourth

What’s the vibe like in the office?

HotSchedules has given me unique opportunities to develop myself personally, professionally & intellectually. I am grateful for these experiences as they have allowed me to grow within the organization & expand in my personal life. In addition, I love working with a group of people who enjoy serving those who serve others and know how to have fun!


Customer Success Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Write some code for a new feature, bug fix, or dev/test tool. Attend a daily stand-up meeting. Sometimes attend a meeting or two. Review code pull requests. Answer questions and help somebody else out with a problem. Oh, and I open a lot of doors on the way to my desk in the morning!


Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

To be successful at HotSchedules, you have to have an open mind, be self-driven, and willing to go the extra mile. Humility I think is what measures my success. Being able to own your mistakes, figuring out what you can do to improve yourself, and do it.


Project Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Every customer is unique and requires their own set of solutions to a wide range of challenges. No two days are alike. I love hearing about these challenges directly from our customers and diving deep to help them find the best path forward.
