What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We use ElasticSearch to facilitate advanced search capabilities across many areas of the product. One of the biggest challenges is keeping our indexes up to date in near real-time as data changes across a variety of distributed systems and microservices.

I started my career at Payfactors as a wide-eyed BDR. The opportunities at Payfactors are endless if you are willing to be dedicated to your craft. Hard work does not go unnoticed around here. I was able to grow to BDR Manager because of the resources, tools, and coaching Payfactors provided me. Payfactors is a great place to start your career!

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

There is no hierarchy of thought at Payfactors; we encourage, nurture, and publicly recognize creativity. We hire really smart, capable, experienced people – trust and empower – then provide all the creative license and latitude they can handle. Employees are held accountable to exceptionally high standards, but we don’t micromanage or baby them.

Payfactors has supported my career growth since I walked through the door. Conversations about career goals are had with regularity, allowing for personal interests to align with team projects. Additionally, Payfactors has done a great job of providing resources and making me feel comfortable taking time to further develop my technical skills.
