An Insider's view of Codal

What are some social events your company does?

Whirlyball, escape rooms, softball leagues, scavenger hunts, happy hours, sendoff parties, game nights; it's tough to name an activity we haven't done as a company. At some companies, if you're not into say, kickball, you're kinda out of luck in terms of social events. Here, the variety's great, because there's something for everyone.

Payne

Front End Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration is huge at Codal. Part of that is through regular, formal meetings—project managers checking in with designers, designers coordinating with devs—but part of it is informal too. I'll talk shop with different team members over lunch or coffee, either to pick their brain or just get their opinion on something I'm working on.

Shannon

UX Designer

How does the company support your career growth?

Codal was my first job after a major career change — I started as an intern, still feeling unsure of what I wanted to do long-term. Codal's leadership embraced that uncertainty, giving me the opportunity to try my hand in different roles and on different teams before settling on something that was a great fit for both of us.

Sean

Content Strategist

What is your vision for the company?

I founded Codal because I saw a lack of transparency and efficiency in digital agencies. Too many slapped a shiny coat of paint on a poorly made product, then bailed, leaving their clients high and dry. I thought there was a better way to run a purposeful, intelligent, and innovative agency, and that's been the vision ever since.

Keval

CEO

What's something quirky about your company?

Well, I haven't worked anywhere else that let me stockpile a Nerf Gun arsenal in my office. Enter at your own risk
