An Insider's view of Grailed

What are some social events your company does?

On top of the killer holiday party and company retreat in the summer, we also have quarterly team outings and weekly happy hours. Management is supportive and people have wide ranging interests so it’s easy to pull a casual outing together.

Claire

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

Technical challenges & collaboration go hand-in-hand here. We've been simultaneously building the data foundations for cross functional teams while also working with folks to ideate, troubleshoot, validate, and predict.

What does career growth look like on your team?

There is much growth to be had here (you can tell from all the plants). The management team continually invests in my education as an IC and now as a manager. Grailed paid for conferences and hired a management coach. We lift each other up!

Sarah

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Every week during the engineering team retro, we share "chompers"; the biggest mistake we made that week. In doing so we can celebrate mistakes, as they are first step to success. Mistakes are inevitable and we want to create an environment where people are supported and can learn from those experiences.
