An Insider's view of Sittercity

What are some social events your company does?

During the work day, break time can equal Mario Kart, coffee runs or ping pong. After work, we have had fun activities including Trivia Night and happy hour. For food lovers, we've had potlucks, a chili cook off, and cookie contest!

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Analytics is core to what we're building here. By leveraging data from social networks, family demographics, and existing users, we're creating a smarter matching experience for families and sitters.
