Teams are autonomous, value inclusivity, eager to learn, teach and constantly improve how things work. The software we build today is the foundation for dozens of Brex systems in the future, so engineers have a strong sense of ownership and accountability and take pride in their craft.
The Insights team is building features to help founders make the best financial decisions for their startups and thus increase the probability of success of startups in the world. We recently acquired Pry, and we have been actively working on leveraging their financial planning and analysis product to help serve startups.
