Having joined Enpal's tech team almost a year ago, I felt warmly welcomed from the beginning. It's an inspiring environment where everyone can pick tasks they enjoy. I appreciate the freedom to voice disagreements and have constructive discussions to find the best solutions collaboratively. We encourage suggesting and driving solutions - not just creating new features but also maintaining software and managing tech debt.
