Could you start by introducing yourself and telling us about your role?
Hey 👋 I’m Sam, a Full Stack Engineer at Vortexa. I joined just over 4 months ago (how the time flies! 🪁).
What inspired you to join Vortexa?
The scale of data that Vortexa works with and the high standards they set themselves presented a challenging engineering opportunity; an environment I work the best in and find most rewarding. Additionally, I received a good impression of the engineering culture in the interviews.
On the engineering side, I have found it to be a culture of openness, respect, and high expectations.
How would you describe your first few months in your role?
I have already had the pleasure of working with lots of incredibly talented people – engineers, analysts, leaders and all. Additionally, I’ve already had a chance to make some impactful improvements to our product and our ways of working, in no small part aided by the openness of the company to listen to ideas.
How would you describe the culture at Vortexa?
On the engineering side, I have found it to be a culture of openness, respect, and high expectations. If you present an idea, you will be listened to. If you challenge an idea or yours are challenged, you will be respected. And lastly, high expectations are set; everybody wants to make awesome contributions and not settle for half-measures.
What advice would you give to those looking to join Vortexa?
Be curious, speak your mind, be a skeptic of your ideas, and set a high bar for yourself.
