    If you like being part of the A-Team in the MySQL community, you'll love this. Working from home has its challenges, but it's incredibly flexible. Because everyone works remotely, it feels like everyone tries harder to communicate effectively. The company is on a path to really make some huge impact in the industry Great technology Great service Smart, thoughtful people


    Not everyone is good with the pace we keep - it can be hard if you're not used to it. Working remotely, while providing lots of great advantages, doesn't work for everyone. We are scattered across the world, with multiple native languages - while this provides for a great diversity of thought, it can mean that the bar is set a little higher on making sure everyone is understood.

    Advice to Management

    I love the direction we're going and the openness of the company. Keep it up.
