An Insider's view of Gemini

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Before I started, I was told that taking a job at Gemini was a great idea because of how excited everyone was to be there. After working here for more than two years, I still believe that to be true. The office is constantly buzzing with incredibly smart people who are working to build Gemini into the long-lasting business we know it can be.

Manager, Cash Management

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

A risk team is typically seen as a group that says "no”; at Gemini, establishing relationships and collaborating are key to understanding risks, which better enables us to say "yes" (or "yes, but..."). Communicating clearly and regularly, keeping things simple, and being flexible in a complex space reduces the risk of a message being lost.

Yusuf

Head of Risk

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

At Gemini, I learned how to advocate for myself. The startup struggle is real and if you don't speak up, your needs won't be heard in the fast-paced environment. Luckily, I’ve been able to grow my career by gaining cross-functional experience and flexing my muscles in the two areas I love the most -- helping customers and designing for them.

Customer Support Associate

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Team meetings and 1:1s are necessary for communication and productivity, but the daily interactions are what really make you accessible. You need to show genuine interest in everyone professionally and personally. I make a connection with each person so they know they are welcome to stop by my desk or ask for my support outside of “scheduled” time.

Jeanine

Managing Director of Operations

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

When we start a project, I challenge my team to look outside of the finance space, to take inspiration from other creative spaces such as art, industrial design, fashion, automotive, etc., and try to translate that into a solution for our industry and users. It's important to set the tone that solutions to problems can come from anyone or anywhere.
