An Insider's view of Origami Risk

What are some social events your company does?

My day-to-day role is already fulfilling, but getting the chance to plan office parties, events, and happy hours for our Chicago office just helps to emphasize our strong culture. Being on the “Fun Committee”, I bring these socials to our London office while traveling for work too. There are plenty of reasons to celebrate while at Origami!
