    I have been working at Farmers Edge full-time

    Pros

    I can't speak to the ops side of the company, but as far as the tech branch goes this is a great company. We are competing in an increasingly crowded new industry so projects are set with aggressive timelines. If working hard and figuring things out for yourself isn't for you, then you might not like working here. However, if you want to have an impact, try new things, push your limits, and sometimes be thrown in the deep end, then this is the place for you. Work-life balance is great. I'm able to work remotely whenever I need to. Health benefits, retirement savings matching, and a fridge stocked with all the caffeine you could possibly want.

    Cons

    Pay is a bit below average for many of the technical positions, but it has been improving
