An Insider's view of Heretik

What's something quirky about your company?

We are extremely proud of our one-of-a-kind Heretik on-boarding process. Every new hire or guest speaker we host is introduced to the team with a 'Walk Up Song' and a custom Mad Lib. It's a fun way to learn more about each other ... and usually leads to some hilarious inside jokes!
