An Insider's view of Paxos

What's something quirky about your company?

While Paxos is building serious products for serious businesses, we are definitely not serious all the time! We have an extremely collaborative culture and we’re big fans of get-to-know-you happy hours, trivia game nights and virtual karaoke bingo sessions. It's a great way for us to connect and be silly outside of the typical workplace hours.

Becky

Director of Communications

What does your typical day look like?

No day at Paxos is really "typical." However, most of my day is really focused on defining and helping us deliver on the incredible roadmap we have ahead of us.

This may involve working with engineering to size projects, chatting with clients and partners to get feedback on the new capabilities, and working with other internal teams.

Jamar

Senior Product Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our team is a great mix of personalities and backgrounds all strongly unified around our mission. To that end, a few key ingredients for success are listening, striving for excellence, and always operating with respect. I'll add that a sense of humor goes a long way!

Mina

Director, Securities

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

High impact innovation tends to come in from the grassroots, so empowering individual contributors to experiment with new technologies and practices, then taking those viral successes and advocating broad adoption is key to organizational transformation and continuous innovation. Kotlin displaced Java at Paxos in exactly this way.

Huw

Director of Engineering

What are some things you learned at the company?

I love working in an environment where on the same day you might be digging into the internals of a new security device and then move on to creating mockups for a frontend feature, all while building part of our crypto custody platform.

There are so many opportunities to learn while being part of building next-generation financial infrastructure.

Senior Software Engineer
