An Insider's view of HotSchedules

What are some social events your company does?

We have Culture Day, where everyone cooks something to eat and drink from different cultures, we also build out a booth and dress like that culture. Then we give everyone a passport that has to be stamped at all the different cultures. It's so fun and our teams really get into it, even making up cultures like The Shire and StarWars.

DeeDee

Sr. Technical Recruiter

What does your typical day look like?

Write some code for a new feature, bug fix, or dev/test tool. Attend a daily stand-up meeting. Sometimes attend a meeting or two. Review code pull requests. Answer questions and help somebody else out with a problem. Oh, and I open a lot of doors on the way to my desk in the morning!

What makes someone successful on your team?

To be successful at HotSchedules, you have to have an open mind, be self-driven, and willing to go the extra mile. Humility I think is what measures my success. Being able to own your mistakes, figuring out what you can do to improve yourself, and do it.

Jadyn

Project Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Every customer is unique and requires their own set of solutions to a wide range of challenges. No two days are alike. I love hearing about these challenges directly from our customers and diving deep to help them find the best path forward.
