    I have been working at Index Exchange full-time

    Pros

    Very engineering first mentality. Management and ELT are passionate and really care about their employees. Challenging problems to solve on a global scale. Index owns and operates their own hardware worldwide and place heavy investments into infrastructure, reliability and scalability. Definitely in a hyper growth stage.

    Cons

    Growing pains that are common with a company growing at their pace. Maintaining legacy monoliths written in Perl, however they’re slowly transitioning to a more modern architecture in Go. Org-wide changes are slow, but steady. Not a lot of insight into product or engineering roadmaps outside of the leadership bubble. (Eng leads, engineering managers, directors, etc.)
