An Insider's view of Spreetail

What are some social events your company does?

One of my favorite (unofficial) social events is something we call 6:00 Club. Every Thursday at 6 p.m., if people are still at the office we all go into the bar room to play games and just get to know each other. It’s a great way to de-stress and hang out with people that you might not work with on a day-to-day basis!

Recruiter

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

My team and I set the standards for backend development. We have autonomy to design and implement our solutions — very rarely are we prescribed dotted lines to follow. It takes a great deal of trust and just as much shared vision, but people tend to develop way faster if they're given the reigns.

Engineering Chapter Lead

What are some things you learned at the company?

The speed at which we get tasks accomplished at Spreetail has made me reevaluate how much I can get done in a single day. The people here attack their job. It has made me raise my bar and bring that intensity to the office every day.
