Join us in welcoming Kait Beaudette to our Engineering Team! Prior to Kipsu, Kait was a software engineer at another local startup called Kidizen. Outside of work, Kait enjoys spending time with her husband and three kids. In her mythical spare time, Kait also likes to read (she's been known to have at least four books in progress at any given time) and will someday have the time and space again to weave a big cozy blanket. We're so excited to have her a part of the Kipsu team and asked Kait to chat about her experience at Kipsu so far.
What drew you to Kipsu in contrast to other companies?
While other opportunities had their own merits, what drew me to Kipsu was that several people I connected with in the interview process described Kipsu as a family. I love that.
What were some things you noticed about the Kipsu team during your first week?
There are a lot of laughs around the office, but not a lot of fridge space; Any one of the team would stop what they are doing to help if you needed it.
What challenges are you looking forward to tackling in your work at Kipsu?
I'm looking forward to understanding the interconnected web of technologies that comprises Kipsu "under the hood" and bring fresh eyes to code organization. I'm also super excited to provide mentorship to engineers-to-be on their journey.
What is your favorite Kipsu core value?
"Go Beyond, Together" - No man is an island!
If you could meet any person for a chat over a shared dinner, who would you pick and why?
Ooh, I would love to chat with George Washington about the American experiment, and being the leader of that rag-tag bunch. I bet he'd have a lot of really interesting insights on things we think we understand.
