Now a team of eight, half of whom are in technical roles, the company is building its own identity inside one of the most iconic of D.C. tech locations: incubator mainstay 1776.
So we were curious about how the startup is growing. To dig into the company’s culture, Technical.ly sent Operations Associate Justin MacFarland a few questions.
Technical.ly DC: Are there words you use internally to describe your company culture? Or team chemistry?
Justin MacFarland: Good, fun, transformational, impactful, disruptive, fierce, rock-solid, superheroes.
TDC: Is there a common (or past) favorite interview question you use?
JM: What teammate habit and characteristics of former coworkers drive you crazy?
TDC: What is an example of a past technical challenge your team took on and solved?
JM: Enabling social media posts for commerce.
TDC: How do you stand out at a place as familiar as 1776?
JM: We love how unique the Goodworld section is — we have doors for walls and the biggest library in 1776.
TDC: What is something special about growing a tech company here in this region?
JM: The entrepreneur ecosystem is still young, but rapidly growing. That said, if your company shows real promise, it’s easy to get noticed and the type of exposure that accelerates your growth.
