Embedded Systems Software Developer

June 2018 • San Mateo, CA

What I liked

There was an astoundingly accepting and friendly environment, but at the same time, everyone worked extremely hard. There were salaried employees who would pull all-nighters a few days before a major demo, and they didn't complain about it once; they did it because they cared about the company, and its mission.

What I wish was different

I would've liked to have a slightly higher salary, but that's something you sacrifice when working at a smaller mission-driven company versus a monolithic company (ex: Apple, Google).

Advice

Be active on office social media (i.e. Slack). I was a co-op for Spring 2018 with Zipcar in Boston, and never would've been offered the opportunity to relocate to the Bay Area for the summer if I hadn't been active on certain channels, and provided valuable input.
