Mission: The mission of the Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) is to promote global financial access, literacy, and inclusion. SDF accomplishes this by expanding worldwide access to low-cost financial services through the development and maintenance of technology and ...
When individuals have access to financial services and the confidence that those services are working in their best interest, those individuals can independently improve their lives. Yet the current financial system is too costly and complicated, leaving millions of people on the sidelines.
Just as the internet allowed anyone to send an email or create a blog, Stellar’s common financial platform now allows you to easily send, save, and receive money, without large fees or hassle.
I worked at Stellar Development Foundation full-time (Less than a year)
At Stellar, employees are pretty autonomous. When I wrote code, I had a project I worked on and had an ordered list of the items I needed to work on. Then, I just worked at a comfortable pace and communicated to my boss when a certain feature would be finished. I wasn't pushed to rush out a feature by a deadline. This was great because I didn't stress about deadlines and I could actually enjoy the work I was doing.
I was also able to share my opinions and they were always considered and heard. In a lot of the code I wrote, I got to pick what technologies I wanted to use. This way, I was able to develop my skills in areas that I wanted to grow in.
With the lack of micromanagement, it may be hard for people that need lots of structured organization to strive. Stellar is best for someone who can manage their own projects.
