  • Employee Spotlight: Inside Elastic Path With Rosie Hamilton - Our people are the center of everything we do at Elastic Path. The “Inside Elastic Path” series is designed to give you insight on what it's like the be a part of our team. Get to know Rosie Hamilton, a Senior Software Engineer, who celebrated her one-year work anniversary last month.   Q: Can you describe a usual workday as a Senior Software Engineer? Rosie: Elastic Pathhas several offices across different time zones. Since I live in UK, I start my work day catching up on slack messages and emails from my colleagues in Canada and the U.S. The rest of the day I have sprint meetings to see how far along we are. I am generally working towards building new features, such as a “Green-Field Service,” so I am quite lucky I get to build things out for the first time.   Q: What is typically the highlight of your day or week? Rosie: The highlight is towards the end of the sprint, when we get to the sprint review. The developers come together to show off what we built.   Q: In your current role, is there something you are most proud of? Rosie:    Q: How would you describe the culture at Elastic Path? Rosie: The culture at Elastic Path is friendly, open and supportive. We get the autonomy to do our own work, and we collaborate and ask for help when needed. There are “no stupid questions,” everyone is very helpful; if you are stuck something you can ping someone on slack, everyone is willing to help.   Q: How has your experience been since shifting to remote work? Have you felt supported? RosieI started this job as a remote worker during the pandemic. There have been positives to working remotely, employees reach out on how I am doing every day, and I constantly feel supported at my role at Elastic Path. I hope to go into an office soon, to meet new faces, since I haven't met anyone in my new city yet.   Q: How has Elastic Path supported your learning & development? Rosie: Elastic Path provides an allowance and dedicated learning and development days every year. During the pandemic I got to attend a development conference called GopherCon EU, that was all remote and I got to do that online. In October, I plan to attend GopherCon UK using the rest of my allowance and that event is face-to-face. So, I am hoping to go to that conference in person.   Q: Thinking back, what were the reasons that made you join Elastic Path? What are the reasons you choose to stay? Rosie: One of my former colleagues was working at Elastic Path. I saw a post about an open position and decided to message them and apply. They gave me information when I asked about the open position. The position was primarily developing using the Go programming language, which I am very passionate about. The main reason I chose Elastic Path is the person I knew was able to vouch for the company, indicating the good culture, friendly team and the software they are building is quite exciting.   Q: Tell me about something that motivates you before work or during work? Rosie: Something that motivates me to stay fit and healthy is working out. I work out by doing weightlifting, running, rowing and climbing. I just started doing Brazilian jiu-jitsu, I use my EP Gym and Fitness allowance to pay towards the jiu-jitsu classes, which is really nice, since I enjoy staying active. I like working out before work or during lunch time, I usually get out to do some running. I like being at home because it means I have my stuff here, so I can eat, write, and train from home.

Q: What gives you the most satisfaction working at Elastic Path?  Q: In your current role, is there something you are most proud of? Steve: What I am most proud of is our integration of OpenID Connect in Elastic Path Commerce Cloud. My first project at Elastic Path was working on our OpenID Connect integration in Elastic Path Commerce. Later when we acquired Moltin, we needed to support OpenID Connect in Elastic Path Commerce Cloud. There is a saying that “if you learn nothing when building something, what you built was too easy.” But it's not often that you get a second chance to leverage what you learned right away and build something better.

Q: How has your experience been since shifting to remote work? Have you felt supported? Steve: My experience working remotely has been well supported.

Q: How has Elastic Path contributed to your career progression/development? Steve: Elastic Path has contributed to my career progression and development in a few ways. One way is that Elastic Path has a generous professional development budget that I have used for training on a number of occasions, such as, Software Architecture, Mongo and Kubernetes. Second, is that the culture here within the teams, are self-organizing and autonomous. We are given latitude to find and develop the best solutions, which often involves learning and exploring new technologies. Q: Thinking back, what were the reasons that made you join Elastic Path? What are the reasons you choose to stay? Steve: I wanted to work at a company that had its technical products as a core part of its business and I wanted to work at a company that had a rich and complex domain as well as tackling problems at scale. Headless API driven commerce ticks both boxes. Q: Tell me about something that motivates you before work or during work? (ie. Music, Exercise, Social breaks etc). Steve: Something that motivates me is being able to go outside during breaks; whether that is before work or if I need a during the middle of the day. I live near a small mountain, so depending on meetings, I try to go out and ride up the mountain during the day. It’s nice to have a break that gives me a chance to meditate on a solution to a problem. Other hobbies I enjoy are, Cycling, Coding, playing Board Games and Reading.   Stay tuned for our next “Inside Elastic Path” series.

  • How Elastic Path Approaches Employee Wellness - Wellness: The state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal. .otro-blockquote{ font-size: 1.2em; width:100%; margin:50px auto; font-family:gilroy; font-style:italic; color: #555555; padding:1.2em 30px 1.2em 75px; border-left:8px solid #ea7317 ; line-height:1.6; position: relative; background:#EDEDED; } .otro-blockquote::before{ font-family:gilroy; content: "\201C"; color:#ea7317; font-size:6.5em; font-weight: 600; position: absolute; left: 2px; top:-20px; } .otro-blockquote::after{ content: ''; } .otro-blockquote span{ display:block; color:#333333; font-style: normal; font-weight: bold; margin-top:1em; } In the past few years there has been a much-needed push within organizations for a more developed action plan around making sure employees mental health and wellness needs are addressed and taken care of – outside of just offering the common health benefits. We here at Elastic Path took the call to action and established our first Employee Resource Group, that would in part focus mainly on Wellness. We established a group of individuals from all business segments, to run our Wellness Employee Resource Group with the assistance of a few individuals from HR and our executive sponsor, Tara Collins (VP of People & Culture). Our Purpose and Vision: To hold a space for our employees to have safe dialogue on mental health and wellness, access a pool of resources, become a support network for one another, and be part of the greater commitment from Elastic Path around ongoing learning. Through bi-monthly newsletters, a wellness slack channel where we share daily tips or ideas as well as workshops, we hope to help our fellow EP’ers find better ways to harness their wellbeing and create more avenues for open dialogue around what can at times be seen as uncomfortable or more vulnerable conversations. Some of the Topics Elastic Path Focuses on: Learning to answer how are you, with more than "fine" Mental health - Stopping the stigma around mental health - lets talk about it! Learning to control your thoughts Ideas on how to take screen breaks - yes, even during the workday! Creating an ergonomic workspace Financial wellness Sleep wellness The importance of using your PTO and how to best prepare for your out of office Post Covid-19 social anxiety   We decided to take the step further, with implementing a Wellness Day off for the entire company to shut down and focus on themselves as well – we shared ideas for activities, and helped those around us get excited for a completely unplugged day off. On July 23rd, we all turned off our monitors, muted Slack and collectively as a company took the day off. Yes, even our CEO, Jamus Driscoll. In many cases people took the day, to fully realize that perhaps they had been neglecting to take care of themselves and set up motion to be better mindful to take time out of each day, to focus on themselves. Many of us took to nature, to unwind our minds, or simply hung out with our families. We all returned the following Monday, well rested, recharged, and ready to hit the ground running and with a better overall sense, that yes, our company cares about us. We hope to better iterate off already in place initiatives and continue to create exciting and fulfilling resources for our employees to maintain a healthy wellbeing. If you focus on just merely the output and dollar association of each employee, vs. their overall health, that formula will fail. What are the Benefits of Wellness Programs? Community: Showing your employees that you care about their wellbeing builds a sense of community withing your organization. Even in a virtual era, a Wellness Program is a great way to connect employees with one another. The cost associated with launching a program can also be minimal to none. With most of the work being able to be put on by internal tools, you can launch your own Wellness Program without the fear of resource limitations. Retention: Employees that feel valued by their company, tend to stay longer than those who do not. Increased Productivity: Studies show that we all perform better when we are in better health. Better alertness, energy, and stamina, which all lead to higher results in levels to productivity. Reducing Overall Health Issues: Creating resources around helping those we work with build healthier lifestyles can help everyone avoid elevated health risks. Increased Recruitment: With so many companies these days offering a slew of benefits to candidates, you want to stand out. Make sure to highlight your company’s offerings in order to attract top talent: free gym, covered insurance, ERG’s, rolling more counseling sessions into benefits, etc. I urge all organizations, to continue to push for Wellness initiatives, continue to have open conversations and listen to those around you. When we are our best selves, is when we can all see greatness and success. We are all more than our titles – a company is more than its profits – we are a collective whole moving together to create positive change in our fields. Your employee’s wellness is directly tied to achievement.

  • Inside Elastic Path: A Look at 2021 - 2021 was a year of tremendous growth for our organization. A few highlights include launching new product offerings, celebrating triple digit revenue growth for our modern SaaS ecommerce offering, hiring 46 people, releasing 70+ product updates, recognizing 31 individuals with promotions, onboarding 40+ new partners, launching new wellness initiatives, and so much more. 2021 was also another year of navigating COVID in the workplace and in our homes. We re-opened our offices globally and closed our offices. We held in-person gatherings and continued virtual events. We learned alongside each other on what it’s like to work fully remote and what it’s like to work in a hybrid environment. Through our learnings, we identified there will be people who would like to remain virtual for the foreseeable future, and there were people who would like to have a hybrid experience. 2021 was the year we launched programs to support both of these scenarios with our Work Mode Stipend program. And we formed a cross functional committee focused on asynchronous work to develop best practices to support collaboration in this new way of working. I started this post by highlighting key growth metrics, and while I could write a blog post on each one, I am going to focus on our people. Our people are at the center of everything we do, and without them, none of the other growth metrics would have been attainable. 2021 Elastic Path Employee Experience With the launch of our Wellness Employee Resource Group (ERG), we saw monthly employee newsletters, new programming to support our people and their families, and a company-wide Wellness Day. Our Wellness ERG brought in an external speaker to talk about mental health, coordinated a company-wide Movember fundraising event, and got us moving during our first company-wide steps challenge. We were proud to launch a new parental leave program supporting primary and secondary caregivers paid time off to bond with their new child/children. All eligible employees (both primary and secondary caregivers) now receive 6 weeks fully paid leave, with the primary birthing parent receiving an additional 6 weeks fully paid. Supporting our people’s professional development has always been a focal point of our employee experience. In 2021, we invested over $30k in professional development activities for our people including online courses, professional coaching, and certifications. Every employee has a Role Charter, and while the Role Charter itself was not new in 2021, we did add a specific callout for professional development to encourage all of our people to take advantage of this benefit. Role Charters are designed to showcase each person’s role and key areas of responsibility in context of team and organizational goals. We could not be more proud of the 31 individuals who were promoted this year. Creating an environment for our people’s careers to flourish is critical to the success of our business. In addition to the professional development program for all employees, we launched a People Leadership Training Program to all people managers. This program covered topics ranging from psychological safety to continuous feedback to conducting effective one-on-one meetings.   Interested in Elastic Path Career Opportunities?

View Job Openings Communication is critical to any organization, but especially a high growth organization such as ours. While we continued programs to deliver information to our people, such as our monthly all hands meeting, we also spent more time listening. We launched pulse surveys throughout the year to check in with our team and we launched a listening tour with our CEO, Jamus Driscoll. Jamus opened his virtual door and met with small groups to hear what was on their mind with a specific focus on our vision for the company. Listening is a crucial, and often overlooked, element of communication, and as we look ahead, I am eager to continue to evolve how we listen at a macro level. So as I end this ode to 2021, I would like to thank each and every person in the Elastic Path ecosystem – across our amazing global team of employees, partners, and customers. We were able to accomplish big goals, pivot when COVID changed our plans, and continued to drive an even better employee experience. Here’s to an even bigger 2022, together.
