With a quantitative background in chemical engineering, applied math, and economics, along with intern experience in the U.S. Senate, Jack was understandably horrified by the prospect of entering the workforce, filled with thoughts of monotony. Luckily, his first job at NextCapital has proved exciting, fun, and impactful, and Jack’s thankful to say he loves it.
Working at such a small startup means everything moves fast for Jack. Every day, he comes in, touches base on emails, and heads into the work with a few teams on a handful of projects. Meetings, brainstorm sessions, and iterative talks with developers about process optimization fill the day, and every day, Jack has an impact.
“My favorite thing about the culture here is the profound sense I get that everyone at the company trusts each other. At a company like this, where everything moves so fast, where we have to be adaptive and flexible, being able to throw an idea at the wall without fear is really important.”
“Because we’re small and doing things so quickly, I have the autonomy to really define some of our processes. From the minute I get here to the minute I leave, I’m constantly solving problems.”
