An Insider's view of Giant Machines

How does your team reward individual success?

I think the strongest rewards for individual success come in the form of increased responsibilities. GM has been very good at starting projects with senior engineers as leads, then sliding more junior engineers into lead roles as projects progress. I think this works both ways in that it rewards individual success and encourages/enables success.

What does your typical day look like?

Start the day off with standup and understand what I'm working on that day. Which would then lead to potential collaboration with fellow engineers and product on any outstanding blockers/questions that I would have. Mixed in with some heads-down time during the day would be PR reviews and project-focused meetings.

Senior Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Giant Machines encourages its employees to continue expanding their skills. They support and encourage the attendance of conferences or additional trainings and also allocate an education budget for every employee. Additionally, the company hosts many informal sessions led by individual team members to demonstrate new technologies and skills.
