It is with all of this in mind that I am happy to introduce our guest for the first Staff Q&A of 2019! Please be sure to view all previous Q&As if you haven’t already
You know her… you love her… but she’s never done Q&A before? Let’s fix that.
In the Hot Coral Hot Seat™️ It’s Rika Raybould (@rika), our wonderful Payments Witch and Backend Engineer
Rika started here in June 2017 and she’s currently working on Card Payments reliability I have it on good authority that she knows all the Mastercard secrets. Or at least everything that’s hidden in ridiculously obscure documentation
Fun Fact about Rika! She can identify almost any anime aired in about the last 10 years.
Her favorite thing about working here is…
“The ability to see a problem and quickly roll a fix out to so many people.”
Get your questions in… @Rika will be answering them later this week!
