An Insider's view of RippleMatch

What are some social events your company does?

Happy hours, retreats, game nights, team dinners, company-wide hackathons – these are just a few of the events we put together regularly for the whole team to enjoy.

Jason

Operations Manager

What does your typical day look like?

My favorite thing about working in a startup is that no day ever looks the same. I spend my day fully engrossed in the software, doing anything and everything that comes my way including walking clients through the platform, running algorithms effectively for customers, matching students with jobs, and handling any issues that crop up.

Brennan

Senior Account Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

From having the opportunity to tackle exciting, challenging projects to receiving useful feedback, I feel like I'm constantly learning here. RippleMatch's emphasis on skill-building and constant improvement really pushes me to carve out the career path I want.

Kate

Content Manager

What is your vision for the company?

Right now, geographical distance, imperfect information, and outdated recruiting practices prevent students from finding the right job. Our goal is to help students on every college campus in America find jobs where they find meaning and success.

Andrew

CEO & Founder

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

As a small team, adaptability and quick-thinking are essential. We all wear many hats - whether it’s dev-ops, database analysis, developing our algorithm, or refining our user experience, our responsibilities can be fluid. In start-ups the knowledge you enter with is a great start, but the real test is how fast you can learn.

Software Engineer
