    Great culture. Great growth potential.

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Santa Barbara, CA

    ProsSmall, autonomous teams work closely with customers to release new features rapidly. Sustainable pace with excellent work/life balance. Great support for individuals and teams. Focus on continual improvement. Good opportunities for career growth as the company grows, both on technical and leadership tracks.

    ConsCompany is growing rapidly, so there are constantly new people to bring up to speed. The number of paid holidays is a bit low. It is challenging to keep code quality high while constantly adding new people and producing such a high volume of new products and features.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue the sustainable balance of growth vs profits. Continue to invest heavily in engineering.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great products and people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Goleta, CA

    ProsGreat employees, great educational / flexible atmosphere, competitive salary.

    ConsIt has grown very quickly - so everything that goes along with that . . . (more politics, more separation from execs to the rest of the group, slowed growth within some departments)

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that everyone working here has a career path in mind - ask your employees what they want over the next year or two with their responsibilities and career growth.
