Across NYC, tech companies are on the search for new talent. And according to their employees, their workplace cultures are enough to make any job seeker stop and pay attention. 

When asked to describe their companies’ cultures, NYC tech professionals chose words like “innovative,” “thoughtful” and “respect.” And while these descriptions may sound simple, they mean a whole lot when put into action in the workplace.

Whether they’re simplifying healthcare or revolutionizing at-home fitness, NYC’s tech companies are undoubtedly transforming the nation’s tech landscape. And luckily for job hunters, they’re all in growth mode. Their open roles encompass a wide range of disciplines, from product design and project management to sales and marketing. 

Check out these 9 hiring tech companies across NYC and hear what their employees have to say about their unique company cultures. 

 

Gary Coleman
Software Engineer

At-home fitness solutions are on the rise, and Ergatta wants to be a part of this growing trend. The company develops indoor rowing machines designed to easily fit into people’s living rooms. 

As a software engineer at Ergatta, Gary Coleman furthers the company’s efforts to create hyper-personalized, interactive fitness machines. 

 

Describe your company culture in one word.

“Open.” Ergatta is an open company — openly transparent, open to new ideas, open to life challenges and open to the growth of its employees. The company involves us in every step of its expansion, from informing us of details and reasoning behind decisions to requesting feedback and suggestions for improvement. Every person I work with is open to my need for growth, understanding and encouragement. I’ve been able to express my own desires for exploration and learning and have gotten projects based on those. Every company policy is not just about Ergatta but is also geared to accommodate our eventful lives and adapt to our emerging needs. This openness carries over into the product, too. We talk to our customers frequently in the product design and development process to make better decisions about how to build features.

 

Ergatta is an open company — openly transparent, open to new ideas, open to life challenges and open to the growth of its employees.”

How long have you been with the company, and what professional growth or development have you seen in that time?

I have been with Ergatta a little over a year, working primarily on our flagship rower UI. I have grown my knowledge of how Android renders views as well as custom views with canvas, navigation, managing state and so much more. Ergatta has granted me exposure to multiple areas of Android. We do a lot of customization on top of the standard Android toolkit, and working on these projects has allowed me to grow in my ability to build great UIs and gain a better understanding of all I have yet to learn. 

 

Akash Shah
Senior Product Deployment Manager

For healthcare enterprises, finding accurate data on doctors, insurance plans and costs can be challenging. Ribbon Health is trying to change that. The company’s platform provides the critical infrastructure that payers, providers and digital health solutions need to enable accurate provider directories, reliable referral management and efficient care navigation. 

Senior Product Deployment Manager Akash Shah spearheads the company’s mission to simplify healthcare. 

 

Describe your company culture in one word.

“Empathetic.” When people need to make a decision about their healthcare, they are often sick or overwhelmed. It is critical that they have accurate information when making that decision. One key piece is being able to clearly and reliably find a provider or doctor (where they practice, which insurances they accept, what care they deliver). To make this information better and more accessible, we help healthcare delivery organizations integrate our accurate and comprehensive provider information. My team is dedicated to understanding every user's specific use case, what they need from us and how we can make their experience better. In a more tactical lens, I work closely with our customers to test, deploy and iterate with our API; I identify trends in our product usage in case of any engagement gaps, and we work together to build joint solutions to meet their needs specifically.

 

I joined Ribbon a month ago, but I already feel at home here.”

How long have you been with the company, and what professional growth or development have you seen in that time?

I joined Ribbon a month ago, but I already feel at home here. One project I've tackled and enjoyed so far has been gathering user feedback and then empowering users to better engage with new product features. Our customers are all working on fascinating use cases across the healthcare industry, and I feel proud to be able to play a part in supporting simplified care decisions.

 

Howard Watts
Lead Software Engineer

Fintech is reshaping the financial realm, and Chronograph wants to be a part of this transformation. The company is building technology that provides private capital investors with portfolio monitoring, reporting and diligence tools. 

Lead Software Engineer Howard Watts drives the company’s efforts to bring next-generation technology to private capital markets. 

 

Describe your company culture in one word.

“Engaging.” From the very beginning the company has encouraged active participation in the product development lifecycle from our teams across all facets of the business. This has led to an engaging culture where all thoughtful ideas have weight, regardless of an individual’s title or experience. Even as Chronograph grows, we have continued to encourage a high level of ideation, feedback and participation in product across our teams, as some of our best innovations have resulted from these open discussions.

More recently, analysts from our data operations team, which helps administer client data, helped craft the direction of internal tools to improve the entire team's workflow. They helped outline the scope of the proposed project, how it would benefit our processes and even how it could provide downstream value to our clients. We prioritized the creation of these internal tools in our product roadmap, all thanks to the passion displayed by this highly engaged group.

 

All thoughtful ideas have weight, regardless of an individual’s title or experience.”

How long have you been with the company, and what professional growth or development have you seen in that time?

I’ve been with Chronograph for three years. I would say that, even though Chronograph has outgrown several physical workspaces and offices during my time here, somehow my personal growth has managed to eclipse it. I had previously worked for some older and less dynamic companies and had been frustrated about having to develop using languages and frameworks that are borderline archaic by today’s standards.

One of the key reasons I was excited about joining Chronograph was its emphasis on never shying away from utilizing the latest technologies. A big part of this has to do with the fact that the founding team is made up of progressive developers. Our engineers are encouraged to pursue ongoing education in new technologies they may discover a passion for. In my case, I once saw applicable areas for machine learning within our codebase but had no prior ML experience. The team encouraged me to take on this challenge, which led to new capabilities for the platform and new value to our clients.

 

Yuri Sanspeur
Product Owner

The 2008 financial crisis highlighted the troubling gap between asset originators and end investors. T-REX was founded in an effort to increase transparency in complex asset classes such as renewable energy and small business loans. The company connects buyers and sellers through one shared SaaS platform that tracks investments across their life cycles. 

Product Owner Yuri Sanspeur drives the company’s efforts to address challenges and create opportunities across the most complicated asset classes. 

 

Describe your company culture in one word.

“Generous.” One of the hallmarks of working at T-REX is that people are very open to helping each other out, and this often manifests in the form of knowledge transfer across a wide spectrum of disciplines. This ultimately creates synergies and a better level of understanding since people can speak the same language and the team evolves toward being polymathic.

A concrete testament to that generosity came from more technical members of my team, who have had significant exposure to programming concepts and software development. Through them, I have achieved a level of technical expertise and professionalism that I could not have acquired through textbooks or online tutorials — let alone in product management — and this has directly impacted my productivity and that of our team as a whole.

 

People are very open to helping each other out, and this often manifests in the form of knowledge transfer across a wide spectrum of disciplines.”

What's the coolest project you've worked on recently, and how did it help you grow professionally?

I’ve worked on many projects that I am extremely proud of, but if I had to choose a recent one, it’s my contribution to defining a transparent, scalable and efficient framework for quality assurance on the vast amounts of data that we ingest. Thanks to the technical guidance of software developers and other program-savvy members of the product team, I was able to write a script that detects divergences between a client’s source and the data that was ingested in the proprietary database, which has saved our team hours of QA work, not to mention that, once defined, the tests can be scheduled to run automatically. Becoming more technical through other people’s help has allowed me to focus my time on tasks for which there is no automation and to develop a level of empathy toward technical people, which you don’t nurture in typical product management roles.

 

Pat McManus
Director of Business Development

For e-commerce businesses, turning shoppers into customers is a top priority. Riskified’s AI-powered platform uses behavioral analytics to help businesses identify legitimate customers and keep them moving toward checkout. Since its inception, the company has reviewed hundreds of millions of transactions and approved billions of dollars of revenue for merchants.

Director of Business Development Pat McManus directly supports the company’s aim to help e-commerce businesses reduce friction and minimize loss along the path to purchase. 

 

Describe your company culture in one word.

“Collaborative.” Because of the rapidly changing e-commerce and payments environment, it's important that there is constant communication between the different teams within Riskified. I think the culture of teamwork within the company is remarkable. Everyone is always open to bounce ideas off each other regardless of their department. Whether it's the growth team talking to the product team or the marketing team talking to account management, the communication is consistent. Riskified’s offering was created and modified based on the needs and feedback of our customers. To that end, if someone on the business development team speaks to a customer about a specific challenge, the product team wants to hear about it.

 

I think the culture of teamwork within the company is remarkable.”

How long have you been with the company, and what professional growth or development have you seen in that time?

I've been with the company for two years. Prior to joining Riskified, I didn’t realize how large and complex the payments space is. Our access to knowledgeable professionals in the payments industry is extremely valuable and eye-opening. Due to the collaborative culture at Riskified, my growth has included more than just skills related to sales. The company also sets up learning sessions that include topics such as public speaking, active listening and other skills that could apply to positions in any industry. I believe these sessions, combined with product-specific training, make me a more well-rounded individual.

 

Elaine MacDonald
Technical Product Supervisor

Crossix is on a mission to reinvent healthcare marketing. The company helps health brands improve their marketing effectiveness through analytics and innovative planning, targeting, optimization and measurement solutions. 

As technical product supervisor, Elaine MacDonald plays a large role in developing new products and identifying new avenues for growth. 

 

Describe your company culture in one word.

“Adaptability.” On the Crossix analytics team at Veeva, we are constantly adapting to better meet and anticipate market needs. An example of that would be the creation of my new role, which hadn't existed before April. Previously, I was working as an analyst on the client analytics team and was responsible for delivering how well a campaign targets and influences healthcare professionals (HCPs) to prescribe a particular brand. While I was working on the delivery of those analyses, I was simultaneously trying to optimize our methodology and define areas where new research could be done. In my new role, I am able to focus on roadmapping the future of analyzing HCPs and developing future products. At Veeva, adaptability means that there will always be room for growth and rewards for those who seek it. 

 

At Veeva, adaptability means that there will always be room for growth and rewards for those who seek it.” 

What's the coolest project you've worked on recently, and how did it help you grow professionally?

Recently, I have been working on researching and developing a product that analyzes the optimal frequency an HCP should be exposed to digital media to influence them to prescribe a client's brand. This project has drawn on existing methodology of other products as well as new, creative problem-solving to create the most efficient and accurate methodology possible. Through the process, I have connected with new teams and have been better exposed to other Veeva offerings. 

 

Caela Pentz
Associate Manager, Partner Marketing

The food delivery space strengthens each year, and DoorDash has been shaping its steady growth. The door-to-door food delivery company employs an army of engineers in order to connect its couriers with restaurants in cities across the U.S. 

As associate manager of partner marketing, Caela Pentz supports the company’s mission to empower local businesses and generate new ways for people to earn, work and live.

 

Describe your company culture in one word.

“Learners.” The people at DoorDash are ambitious and smart, but overall, everyone possesses this trait of unwavering curiosity. It’s one of our values to seek truth, and each month, we have a companywide seminar on a different topic or area of the business. 

 

The people at DoorDash are ambitious and smart, but overall, everyone possesses this trait of unwavering curiosity.”

How long have you been with the company, and what professional growth or development have you seen in that time?

I’ve been at DoorDash since November 2017 and have seen the company (and myself) grow tenfold. I’ve worn a few different hats over the past few years, from working on regional consumer marketing to merchant ops and national partner marketing. Since day one, DoorDash has encouraged me to challenge myself and lean into opportunities where I become 1 percent better every day in the areas I’m interested in, whether that’s signing up for courses, owning a unique campaign or working closely with a cross-functional team to learn a new skill.

 

Elena Garrido
Director of Business Development

Amazon currently holds a $40 billion monopoly on online product reviews. Narrativ wants to change that. Their platform enables brands to unlock, manage and grow their share of product reviews on the open web. In addition to offering a marketplace for unbiased product recommendations, the company repairs broken links to provide a better shopping experience. 

Director of Business Development Elena Garrido drives the company’s efforts to unlock Amazon’s monopoly for all brands. 

 

Describe your company culture in one word.

“Fast.” Narrativ is a hyper-agile organization that's constantly responding to the needs of our engaged, growing community of brands. Everyday, we challenge assumptions about traditional performance and affiliate marketing channels. 

 

Narrativ is a hyper-agile organization that's constantly responding to the needs of our engaged, growing community of brands.”

What's the coolest project you've worked on recently, and how did it help you grow professionally?

I’m currently working on expanding our community of publisher partners to include creators on YouTube that give honest, unbiased product recommendations. It's been the most rewarding project of my career to empower creators as entrepreneurs with the more sophisticated data and tools Narrativ provides for all our publishers. 

 

In order for brands to thrive in today’s digital landscape, they must build a powerful online presence. Squarespace helps them do just that. The company helps small businesses, artists and more develop professional websites and online stores as well as create branded email campaigns. 

As art director, Gina Kim helps design the company’s product and campaigns. 

 

Describe your company culture in one word.

“Growth.” I first stepped into Squarespace as an intern, and it’s been a crash course in all things advertising and design since then. I’ve worked on some cool projects, from developing a microsite built to celebrate our awesome customers called Makers & Dreamers to creating content for our product that tons of users will come across. Getting a chance to sit at the table the entire way through — from concept to being on set to production — has been such a great learning experience. I'm continuously given opportunities to learn, contribute and grow as a young creative here.

What's the coolest project you've worked on recently, and how did it help you grow professionally?

Recently, I’ve had a chance to be a part of our brand-level campaign. This is the first campaign I’ve been a part of professionally, so it was very exciting. I’ve been a part of productions for other projects prior to this, but remote production was an entirely different experience (and a different time zone since we shot in the U.K.). Learning the ins and outs of a larger campaign has been incredibly rewarding, and adapting to and being a part of a completely remote production has been valuable as well.
