An Insider's view of Gemini

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Before I started, I was told that taking a job at Gemini was a great idea because of how excited everyone was to be there. After working here for more than two years, I still believe that to be true. The office is constantly buzzing with incredibly smart people who are working to build Gemini into the long-lasting business we know it can be.

Marjorie

Director of Treasury Operations

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

A risk team is typically seen as a group that says "no”; at Gemini, establishing relationships and collaborating are key to understanding risks, which better enables us to say "yes" (or "yes, but..."). Communicating clearly and regularly, keeping things simple, and being flexible in a complex space reduces the risk of a message being lost.

Yusuf

Head of Risk

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

When we start a project, I challenge my team to look outside of the finance space, to take inspiration from other creative spaces such as art, industrial design, fashion, automotive, etc., and try to translate that into a solution for our industry and users. It's important to set the tone that solutions to problems can come from anyone or anywhere.
