FiscalNote’s downtown digs are replete with exposed brick, a snazzy team mural, and all the character a young startup can hope for. Despite all this we’re thrilled to leave our F Street address and head to a new home – One Thomas Circle. OTC, as we’ve affectionately started to call it, overlooks – you guessed it – scenic Thomas Circle, … Read More

FiscalNote costume contest crowns champion

careers_4od8x3Blog

On Oct. 30, a bizarre group of characters stalked into FiscalNote’s downtown office. In the marketing department, gangsters sporting orange water guns mingled with squids. Up the stairs, Superman jostled a Ninja Turtle as they waited in line for their photo shoot. The tension in the air was palpable; FiscalNote’s Best Individual Costume award was on the line. Many of … Read More

DeStefano is one of FiscalNote’s ‘relentless achievers’

careers_4od8x3Blog

The last page of FiscalNote’s culture deck, which outlines our seven company values, ends with this statement: “We are a company of relentless and exceptional achievers.” It might as well say “weird” achievers: our team members include an intern who can attach magnets to his face, a Business Development Associate who is scared of grapes on the floor, and a … Read More

NEW YORK – For twelve months, Craig Burel was a one-man team at the FiscalNote New York office. From June to July that team grew to six, and – as CEO Tim Hwang sees it – could eventually rival our Washington, D.C. office in size. That’s the strategic vision as FiscalNote expands our regulatory offerings to help companies assess their … Read More

FN drone demo provides introduction to aerodynamics

careers_4od8x3Blog

A “drone” in popular nomenclature has traditionally meant a mindless being that goes about a task. This may be an apt use of the term when applied to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), but one that only leads to confusion, according to FiscalNote’s Chris Simpson. Chris is an avid pilot of remotely controlled aircrafts, a passion he shared during a recent … Read More

Wine lesson gives FiscalNoters a taste of the trade

careers_4od8x3Blog

Not many of us here at FiscalNote are wine connoisseurs. In fact, when tasked with setting up for the most recent installment of ShowFN, we quickly realized that we didn’t even have a corkscrew in the office (we could, however, come up with a half dozen bottle openers). Luckily, we have Business Development Associate Amanda Wynter to help us distinguish … Read More

Batman: The startup superhero?

careers_4od8x3Blog

To many experts, the factors distinguishing a “superhero” from a “hero” are as clear as day; but to others, there seems to be a grey area. Thor – of course. Superman – well, it is in his name. Batman, however, is a little more controversial. As Bill Palombi pointed out to other FiscalNoters, a Google search for “is batman a … Read More
