    Pros

    I grown from a Developer Evangelist into what I would define as a Customer Success Engineering (customer development) role. During that time I was able to help implement codebase changes for the HUD(Dashboard), various tooling, execute very new proof of concepts, help engineering teams at top companies implement working user facing problems/solutions in a wide variety of languages. Play a voice in the development of the marketing and sales process, bring feedback, bugs, issues from the users back to the team through various channels or implementing a fix myself. Iron's community of users absolutely LOVE using IronWorker and IronMQ and are passionate and vocal about this fact. They would also very readily provide feedback on a very consistent basis. Management is not afraid to move fast and cut the bureaucracy/political games you might see at other companies. + great slack/office/work life flexibility + great revenue growth and product market fit. + community involvement/leadership in meetups, conferences + diverse set of minds, personalities, and backgrounds across the entire company + to Heavybit membership/office (they have since started migrating to their own office after raising Series A)

    Cons

    - Move Fast and Break Things has it's downsides Innovating fast does not always lend itself to backwards compatibility, more team planning when migrating things such as api versions or retiring old features would be great. There were a few product transitions where engineering move faster/slower than docs, marketing, sales, tutorials can catch up which can cause a influx of customer/internal discord and confusion. - It can be difficult to find a path of growth within the organization, the organization is still growing quickly so many positions and teams may not already exist. If you have a clear idea of where you want to grow into it's best you seriously communicate that early and often in your 1on1's, management will listen. If you are a bit less clear on what your path forward, as I was, it can become a bit of a head scratcher.

    Pros

    Possibly one of the best offices in the city. After moving from incubator to incubator it was great to have our own place.

    Cons

    The original management made really poor financial decisions. After the second massive round of layoffs and they were pushed out, it started to get a bit better.
