At Alt, we envision a world where anything is an investable asset.

An Insider's view of Alt

What are some social events your company does?

I love being a part of a company that invests in building relationships between coworkers. We have teams dedicated to planning events in our various cities. Our company loves hosting-- weekly team work outs, attending local sporting events, offsites in Napa, Halloween pumpkin carvings/paintings, holiday parties, and happy hours.

People Associate

What projects are you most excited about?

I feel very lucky to be an early full-stack engineer at Alt because of the projects I’ve gotten to work on. Getting to build the whole customer onboarding flow was extremely fulfilling for me. Working with my team on the various UI screens and business logic for an Alt Exchange transaction has been massive for my technical growth as well.

How does the company support your career growth?

Alt supports my career growth by acknowledging my aspirations! The leaders at Alt have supported me in defining what that success looks like while shaping an actionable plan. It excites me to achieve those desired outcomes that align with company goals given the vast opportunities my team has available.
