      Location of the office can lead to big commute timed, but only 2 days a week in now making it less of a cons.

      Pros

      The product and mission are brilliant. The company culture is positive. The people operations team is always trying new things to support everyone and the office atmosphere is really nice. 6 weeks remote policy is great. People in BD are really supportive and kind. They’re focused on building the business as a team. The job is challenging in a good way and we get to work with different industries and verticals so you definitely don’t get bored!

      Cons

      Things change a lot and it’s hard work. It wouldn’t suit everyone.
