An Insider's view of Brex

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

If you stay focused during the workday, it's not hard to have a very comfortable work-life balance at Brex. I love that I can work hard during the day, but also pursue hobbies (like Brazilian jiu jitsu!) and enjoy New York's amazing social scene.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined as an IC before the public launch in 2018, initially working on our onboarding backend. I then moved to building core services and infrastructure pieces, and am now managing a team. Alongside many people at Brex, I had the incredible and unique opportunity to grow in technical depth and in management skills, in a very short amount of time.

Thomas

Technical Lead/Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our team works closely with Brex’s leadership to help them uncover their vision and tell the story of Brex—so that every product decision or brand expression moves in the direction of that vision. We partner with cross-functional teams across the business, like User Research, to keep decisions aligned and, most importantly, focused on the customer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our most successful team members are intellectually curious and collaborative. When we approach problem-solving, we do so both with creativity and a bias to action, and that often means working with different parts of the organization to get to the best answer for Brex.
