Celebrations 🥂🎉

The company Eden works for, Lemonade, went public last week!

“When I started at Lemonade 3+ years ago, I was the 8th software engineer and only female on the team. Now we’re almost 60 engineers and 400 people in the company worldwide. This week, we had our IPO on the New York Stock Exchange and it was a huge accomplishment for everyone in the company!”
