An Insider's view of EquityZen

Senior Front End Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Since joining EquityZen, I've learned to have more of an analytical mindset when making decisions and proposing solutions. Coming from a client-facing background at a large company, tools like SQL were things I never touched or knew about. At EquityZen, we're empowered and encouraged to look at that data to make quantitative decisions.

Senior Investment Associate

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

Our team wakes up everyday and faces new challenges in a complex and ever-shifting FinTech space. We’re focused on building features that support our growing user-base, internal tooling to empower our co-workers, and attacking our technical debt head-on. We’re very proud to build performant and maintainable software that helps us scale.
