An Insider's view of Paxos

What are some social events your company does?

We have fantastic company-wide events and functional team events. My favorite of recent was the Compliance Team outing consisting of a Cycle Beats class at Equinox followed by a delicious group dinner in Flatiron. Also, you can't beat the weekly Happy Hours where you can connect with everyone at the company!

What does your typical day look like?

Everyday at Paxos is filled with collaboration between team members, departments, offices, and partners. The ops day kicks-off by call with our Singapore office and is structured around daily crypto and fiat processing windows. My favorite part of the day is meeting with engineers to improve our products for both our customers and employees.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Paxos back in 2017 as a Software Engineer. Now that I have grown into a Senior Software Engineer 2 years later, I have more confidence working with new technology and working cross functionally. This growth has also given me more opportunities to own projects from end to end and embrace new challenges.

Senior Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a member of the product team, collaborating with other teams at the company is core to my day-to-day at Paxos. We have a daily scrum with our executive team and functional leads every morning to discuss any important business items and for any project that I work on, I work very closely with our engineering, operations, BD and compliance teams.
