An Insider's view of Chainalysis

How does your team reward individual success?

We celebrate our team members' successes through company-wide recognition, shoutouts, and of course, promotions. With the team currently remote, it’s been fun to see everyone's accomplishments in our #bananayay Slack channel - the team is so supportive and always ready to jump in and congratulate their peers.

What does your typical day look like?

We start with a daily standup meeting that allows us to catch up with our teammates around the world. Then, it's mostly coding/analysis time. My work involves finding new sources of data and utilizing it to produce insights for our customers. We have flexibility to work remotely, that helps me balance on both home/work front and feel successful.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since joining Chainalysis, I’ve learned so much about a rapidly developing industry and have grown as a professional. Like the crypto industry, we're growing and changing quickly, and with that comes new opportunities. I started as an SDR and was recently promoted. This wouldn't have been possible without support and guidance from my colleagues.

What is your vision for the company?

We’re continuing to see global institutions adopt digital assets, and we are the key player in building trusted solutions for blockchain data and analysis. As we expand, we’re hyper-focused on moving fast and scaling up. The cryptocurrency ecosystem needs our investigative and compliance technology, and it's an exciting time to be at Chainalysis.

What makes someone successful on your team?

The easy answer is making your sales quota, but we're focused on so much more than just the "sale". Our best teammates are fantastic communicators even through changes due to the pandemic, coachable, and lean into suggestions and growth, and they maintain a positive attitude through the ups and downs which has been especially important this year.
