Tapp employees are located all over the place. We have team members from different states in the US, and also from other countries with different timezones. We communicate with one another via Slack and online conference calls. In order to create a smooth workflow, everyone is always communicating, providing support, and giving feedback on each other’s work.
Since Tapp is a small team of 10+ people, I sometimes had to take on tasks that are not in my scope of responsibilities. I always accepted the tasks and worked on them with a positive mindset. This turned out to be a great way for me to understand myself and my capability, and thus, provided me more clarity on what I want to do for my career in the future!
What I wish was different
A better schedule management plan would be nice. However, I understand that they are still a startup company so there are areas for improvement! I really enjoyed working with them though.
Be true to who you are, and embrace yourself. I find this lesson is the most important lesson of them all. In order to understand other people, I have to understand myself. I understand my strengths and my weaknesses, and I’m always open to feedback from my team.
