Q: What was your “Aha” moment that made you choose to join Blinds.com?
After working in New York, I was just settling in Houston when I had the opportunity to interview at Blinds.com. At first glance, I knew the company was in Home décor business. You can see a bunch of creative and cool stuff across the company, and I knew within 10 minutes of meeting my future managers that this was the place for me. People here are not only smart, intelligent and goal driven techies, but they also know how to have fun at work and promote a healthy, lively environment that helps each other to grow and improve continuously.
Q: Describe your relationships with other Blinds.commers. What’s the environment like?
We have so many pleasant personalities here that make any day a Happy day. Being surrounded with genuine and fun loving people inspires, motivates and helps to bring out best in you. There is always an exchange of pleasant smiles with whoever you meet or cross in lobby. It’s like a family where we can come in PJ’s, have fancy dress days, fairy days and what not, if that’s not enough we indulge our selves with ice cream and cakes and later shed those pounds together by having healthy weight watcher competitions. It’s Fun.
Q: What makes your Monday awesome?
Every other Monday we have sprint planning where we plan work for the next 2 weeks. I have never seen a company and team that is truly agile and delivering work that is committed on time with top quality (sometimes we even deliver more than we commit to). We don’t fear experimentation. From each experiment we learn and improve continuously. We always make sure to speak up and enjoy the ride. We really know the secret sauce. I have been lucky to be part of teams like Autobahn and Interconnected team where we all work as a team and strive for quality product by putting Customer experience first.
