An Insider's view of Ookla
How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?
As a single mother of two young children with special needs, the fact that I am not going bonkers while working full-time speaks volume. My experience at Ookla has been nothing short of amazing. My team, and the company in general, has been incredibly supportive and this has allowed me to be successful not only as an engineer, but also as a mom.
How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?
Many of the people I work with at Ookla are remote or international. By utilizing tools like Jira and Confluence or Slack, I always feel like we are working together by updating status' or doing screen shares. It's so easy to jump on a quick call and solve a problem instead of going through rounds of emails and we do that at Ookla very well.
