Before we get into the work I feel like I have to be completely honest about my time at Verve which is now Pollen (yes, THAT pollen).
After several months working there, I noticed a few incidents of racism. I reported these to both the Head of People and the CEO. Both of whom assured me that this would be investigated. This was the catalyst for the events to come, one of which was the company trying to illegally deport me during my visa process.
This company was led by a group of disgusting and horrible people and I’m glad that the world is now able to see them for who they truly are.
Despite all of the above, I got to meet a group of wonderful people that were in the product and tech teams and we worked on interesting stuff.
