An Insider's view of Brigit

What are some social events your company does?

One of my favorite events that Brigit has is employee-run quarterly breakfasts. The staff running the breakfast attempt do their best in impersonating a New York deli - making breakfast sandwiches on griddles and pourover coffee to order. We also try to encourage a no meeting and laptop policy during the breakfast hour to spend some quality time.

Jeremy

Engineering Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our goal on Data Science is to strike the right balance between helping more users and minimizing losses. Most users need money to purchase food, gas, or even buy a meal. The credit underwriting models we use allow us to help as many people as we can and improve our user retention over time in order to achieve a competitive advantage.

Madhu

Senior Data Science Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Brigit after graduating from college. During my 2.5 years at Brigit, my career has grown in ways I would not have expected. Six months into my time at Brigit, I began doing more backend work and moving into a Full-Stack role. After 1.5 years, I took on the role of technical lead on our Membership team.

Avery

Software Engineer -- Tech Lead

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I'm always available via slack and then I work to schedule skip levels with everyone on engineering, as well as with folks outside of engineering on occasion throughout the month to make sure I have a pulse on how folks are doing. Additionally I try to solicit feedback through our culture & development platform and use that to spur conversations.

Hamel

Co-Founder & CTO

What are some things you learned at the company?

In my time at Brigit I've been able to learn how not to just build a brighter future for others but for myself as well. Each and every day here I have had the opportunity to improve my problem-solving skills, adapt to meet the needs of our users, and provide them the information they need to build the lives they want for themselves.
