Caylent has been remote-first from the beginning. We use tools like Slack and other collaboration tools to ensure our team feels connected. Every Caylent team member has a pool of points to thank each other for going above and beyond. This has helped nurture our collaborative culture. One employee described asking for help feeling like simply walking to your neighbor’s house and asking to borrow a cup of sugar. We believe strongly in supporting one another and going the extra mile for our customers and for each other.
