CULTURE

We kick BIG goals + celebrate the wins as a team.

Our culture is a big deal to us, and we are committed to creating an environment where people are passionate about the work they do and the team they work with.

This is fostered by the way we operate: we are highly collaborative, and every member of the team plays an active role in shaping the direction of the business.

We take pride in our work, but play is super important to us too!

We make sure we inject fun into the everyday and take the time to celebrate our wins. (A notable example of our commitment to good times involved 120 gyoza hand-made by Song for one of our monthly ‘FriYay’ lunches!).
