An Insider's view of Adage Technologies

What are some social events your company does?

Adage is really good about keeping us connected while working remotely. There are quarterly happy hours and recently the PO team did a boat cruise that ended in drinks along the river. We also get a team budget, and use this on social lunches.

What does your typical day look like?

I come into work every day knowing that I am going to solve multiple problems. Brainstorming different approaches is a challenge but, rewarding at the same time. We are problem-solvers and build solutions in difference spaces ranging from branding, user experience, optimization, technology integration, and more.
