“I’m just a 20-year old-guy, and I’ve already been able to work with the best and brightest minds in finance—I don’t think I could get that anywhere else,” says Matt Slipper, a front-end software engineer for Symphony.
There’s no doubt working for Symphony is an incredible opportunity. The company offers secure messenger and workflow platforms for regulated businesses around the world—and, in the process, is changing how people communicate.
Employees get a lot of independence. Each team member is encouraged to take ownership of projects, no matter what department he or she is in. Sashi Dias Valtz, Head of Business Development for the Americas, says, “We have a completely entrepreneurial environment where everyone gets the opportunity to express their visions and take ownership of their verticals.”
Not only does this allow team members to invest themselves in projects they’re passionate about, they also get to expand their roles more quickly than they could at a traditional company. “The amount of faith Symphony has put in me makes me feel that this is a place where I can grow into what I want to become,” explains product manager Thibaud Duprat.
Symphony has several guiding values. Some, like “Push Boundaries” and “Technology Should Be Simple,” speak to the company’s mission to make technology that’s both innovative and user-friendly. Others, like “Trust Is Everything” and “Diversity Makes for a Richer Experience,” show how much Symphony values individuality and a collaborative company culture.
