What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe is centered on holding our work to high standards while maintaining an environment focused on fun and collaboration. My coworkers and I will often be working on completely unrelated projects, but when we hit a roadblock we step back and ask each other for feedback and help. That’s usually when we find the best solutions.
