The people. Every company mentions their people but what makes Coconut special is that you feel your colleagues are rooting for you to win professionally and personally. If anyone needs help with a call, building a presentation, analyzing data, there’s no shortage of folks stepping in to help. The team is also there to help support personally whether it be helping me work on my yoga breathing techniques on a 1:1 mindfulness meeting or a video call with one of our lead devs to help me figure out my rubix cube, the team has got your back.
Why should potential candidates consider joining the Coconut team?
The potential to really see the impact of your work and your role. The feedback we consistently get from employees is that they feel they can make an immediate impact within the first couple of months. Between that and the relationships you build with your colleagues, it’s a pretty special place to be.
How do you spend your time when you’re not at work?
Well, right now it’s not solving my forever stuck rubix cube. Outside of work you’ll find me on a yoga mat, boxing, hiking, or being a semi-automated human food dispenser to my dog.
