clypd Profiles: 9 Questions with Leona Williams

In this blog series, we interview a member of the clypd team. Find out what drives us, what makes us tick, and what we do outside of the clypd office. In this month’s clypd Profile, we talk to Leona Williams, Executive Assistant. Can you describe your job and an average day working at clypd? My job is filled with variety. An average day starts with me coming into a cold office and letting the building engineer know the temperature should be adjusted. Then I check snack supplies while making myself a bowl of greek yogurt with raw honey, bananas, and granola. I settle in at my desk and check the calendar to refresh my memory on any planned birthday and anniversary celebrations. Then the day takes off and it’s all nonstop; order beer and coffee, plan the next event, troubleshoot the printer, sort out conference room bookings, pet a dog, sign for deliveries, phone screen a candidate for hire, and the list goes on.

In this month’s clypd Profile, we talk to Quinten Palmer, Software Engineer. Can you describe your job and an average day working at clypd? An average Monday starts with a Bruegger’s bagel (we have bagels brought in every Monday), and some cold brew coffee that we have on tap. I catch up on some emails and either lead or join my team’s stand-up; I am co-agile coach with Sumit and we swap the role every other week.

clypd Profiles: 9 Questions with Liz Keller

I work on the UI team, which means that I get to help develop our user-facing features. Day-to-day what I could be working on anything, from UX brainstorming to re-organizing our database to coding up pretty and interactive charts! I like to arrive a half hour before stand-up at 9:30 so I have a bit of quiet time in the morning to eat a pastry and drink coffee while I read my email. After our stand-up, I alternate between working on my own projects, helping out teammates, and going to meetings.

clypd Profiles: 9 Questions with Herbert Chang

I’m a software engineer on the platform team, which at clypd means that my focus is on improving and maintaining the “magic behind the curtains,” so to speak. Our software stack is fairly straightforward, using Go as our language of choice, PostgreSQL as database, Resque for job scheduling, and Docker for containerization.
