It's very rare for a startup to have a pipeline of new customers waiting to get onboarded. Rise is one of them. This ensures product roadmap is very targeted, and my work generates immediate business value. We have our challenges, just like any other startup, like quickly finding talent to grow the teams and always trying to do more, but that's startup life. One can take that as an opportunity to step up, learn more and grow faster, or wait for others to fix things.
The tech team is fun, friendly and forward looking, and we have a lot of interesting and practical business problems to solve. Time spent at Rise has definitely contributed a lot to my professional growth.
I worked remotely, So my experience is biased. If you work in the office you may not enjoy the company as much. The technology needs work but with time I believe it will get better. With a incomplete product, it became difficult to sell.
