An Insider's view of Riskified

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As an Integrations Engineer, I sit with multiple stakeholders - the Customer, Sales, Product, Data Integrity, & Go-Live, to name a few. Whether a merchant has a new problem for us to solve or we're launching a new product, we maintain close contact to ensure we're on the same page, & deliver the best product & experience to our customers.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've been given the opportunity to work on increasingly larger deals that continue to stretch me in new ways. I've been able to work directly with the executive team and contribute meaningfully to the business. I feel valued and challenged on a daily basis and look forward to continuing to grow my career with the company.

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

I have weekly 1:1s with my team & quarterly 1:1s with all employees and they know they can come to me at any time. Making myself accessible to my team & the rest of the company is extremely important in my role and will always be one of my top priorities. It is important for employees to know they have someone they can trust & go to for anything.
