“We also have an unlimited books policy, which a lot of us love. So, essentially, if you buy a pile of books, and you want to take three days off to just like be in your hammock and read your book, you can do that.” — Maria Molin [0:16:17]


“We're also connecting with more female coding schools to reach out to women. There are a lot of women studying STEM right now and I think it's an amazing opportunity to connect with women and get them into the industry.” — Maria Molin [0:22:25]


“The percentage of women in the company has grown a lot, and I would say also working remotely, it's a great opportunity to bring in people from different backgrounds, and that is something that we're really aiming for in all the roles that we're recruiting for.” — Maria Molin [0:23:52]
