An Insider's view of Bread

What are some social events your company does?

We eat lunch together virtually on Fridays, as well as on Mondays to welcome our new hires, and have monthly virtual happy hours. We have virtual affinity groups for women =, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community, and two virtual book clubs. Our culture committee also plans happy hours based in our Flatiron office or at nearby bars.

What projects are you most excited about?

A typical day at Bread is different depending on the engineer. While some engineers enjoy more autonomy, I enjoy collaborating on projects with other engineers and coming up with great solutions together. We strike a balance between stability and innovation through code reviews and guest lectures. I feel supported in my career growth here at Bread.

John

Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

We are looking for people that are willing to learn! That want to be here and have an impact. People that are willing to work hard, collaborate, and foster an environment of inclusivity.

Liz

Head of Talent

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One thing we like to do for our Engineers at Bread is provide the opportunity to participate in Working Groups. These are quarterly teams of 4 to 6 engineers that set out to tackle a specific engineering initiative outside of their core engineering team. This is another opportunity as an engineer at Bread to have impact across all of Engineering!

Ed Cudahy

Chief Technology Officer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

One of the great things about working at Bread is the cross-functional collaboration with other teams. As an integrations engineer, I have not only learned how to intentionally build a product in a thoughtful manner from the Engineering and Product teams, but also how to be effective in a client facing role from our Sales and Success teams.
