Long running inside jokes meets heavy GIF usage meets a variety of nerdy hobbies.

What makes someone successful on your team?

To be successful on the team, one must assimilate themselves into the team already in place. Our entire team is adaptable and eager to learn. Age does not matter as long as one can learn new skills, provide new ideas, and different points of view. Lastly, supporting each other and giving everyone respect is essential to the team's success.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

In a word, our work-life balance is “healthy.” Working beyond a 40-hour week is not expected, nor is it a regular occurrence. But, every single person here is an A-player and will work to produce world class results. We encourage everyone to lead physically and emotionally healthy lifestyles, and we genuinely care about each other’s personal lives.
