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.

clypd Profiles: 9 Questions with James Garfield

In this blog series, we interview a member of the clypd team every month. 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 James Garfield, Principal Software Engineer. Can you describe your job and an average day working at clypd? I like to get in about an hour before our stand-up meeting to have time to make myself an Aeropress coffee, read my email, and catch up with engineers on other teams. I’m lucky enough to get to work on projects all over our tech stack, from standing up new platform APIs, integrating with data-science, and helping our UI team use state of the art technology. I try and fit all my meetings to synchronize on my projects in the mornings, so that I can concentrate on writing code in the afternoon. I also like to round out the day with a rousing game of foosball.

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 Andy Shultz

Can you describe your job and your average day working at clypd? I generally get in a little before stand-up, having read through morning emails at home. We have a stand-up, and then my day alternates between chunks of coding and chunks of design discussion or other meetings until it’s time to roll out. As well as coding, my job is to help drive design and process.
