    Pros

    I love the great collaboration across teams working together to solve problems even in this primarily remote workforce. The executive leadership is very forward thinking and growth minded which allows for minimal barriers to productivity.

    Cons

    The product is pretty new and fairly complex which leads to challenges and can be stressful at times so you must be motivated and enjoy working in dynamic and challenging environments. Depending on what kind of person you are, this could also be a pro.
