What is it like working here?
Our office is based in the Waltham Watch Factory right on the beautiful Charles River. A few employees are also remote and these folks travel to Waltham from time to time (payed for by Ledgex).
As a small growing team, we work very closely with one-another in a relaxed office environment. Engineers/DevOps handle the tech, QA handles the acceptance testing, support folks man the phones and our investment professional team drive the product and vision. We are evolving, so we don't have all the answers or established practices just yet you might find at a large firm.
We have a weekly company standup where our COO/CEO and VP of engineering give company updates and meet later in the week for happy hours and games. Many of us have families back home and life outside of work so we are able to have schedules that offset more in the morning or evening to tailor to our individual needs. We believe to get the best output from employees, the freedom and feeling of ownership is key
