    Pros

    At Granular, you get to solve really interesting problems in an industry that is seeing a big growth in technology. Agriculture is extremely complex so you really get to apply your engineering knowledge to build robust systems. The engineering team is always looking to improve so if there's a system that's difficult to scale or maintain, they're willing to take a step back and build something better. Work is very impactful and everyone has an opportunity to create a noticeable difference. The team is full of smart people who are very friendly and willing to teach or help each other out with ideas and guidance. Leadership is also very involved without stepping on progress. The engineering team overall is excellent. Perks include unlimited vacation and flexible hours. Breakfast and lunch are provided via Instacart grocery deliveries and usually can accommodate most requests. Catered lunches are provided at least once or twice a week. Occasional offsites and happy hours for team building. Company also provides top notch equipment equipment for your workspace.

    Cons

    It's a startup in San Francisco with limited funds which means the bar is set very high for employees to perform. It's not a place for someone to just get by. Expect to work hard during working hours and occasionally rise to the occasion during crunch time. Industry is very complex so you may feel lost understanding the system and/or workflows. Can easily be left behind if not ambitious and a go-getter. Learning curve to pretty steep and climbing it is not for everyone. Average startup perks, medical benefits. Could always use more pay. Company is still identifying it's culture but it's visibly moving towards the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow selectively. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us and can use the right people. Keep building morale and culture up by encouraging everyone to have fun and enjoy what we're building. Sometimes it's easy to get too focused on goals and not enjoy the journey.
