How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Unqork encourages different teams to build creative solutions on a daily basis. Thomas and I have been working on a project together for the past few months, and most of our days consist of collaborating together in a fun and relaxed room, brainstorming to come up with innovative solutions to complex business problems.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

From my first day, I was quickly able to see the results of my work in projects. There is an inherent positive feedback loop of effort translating to valuable technical and business experience in the company.
