An Insider's view of Resy

What are some social events your company does?

I am all about family meal! Every Friday, we order lunch from one of our restaurants and everyone from engineering to sales comes together to eat. We get to catch up across departments to talk about work and the weekend. We’re not all restaurant industry vets, but we all appreciate good food and the experience of enjoying a meal with friends.


Senior Regional Success Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We're growing fast at Resy, and we're building products the restaurant industry hasn't seen before. One challenge is to maintain quality in our code & testing as we move quickly. Our engineering team leans on unit tests and we have a lot of automated integration tests. I'm excited to see how holding on to these values will impact our ecosystem.
