An Insider's view of Beyond Finance

What's something quirky about your company?

Friday is donut day! Beyond Finance's Chicago team is still pretty new and lean, which means we stay busy building and optimizing tools and processes. When Friday rolls around, donut day is not only a great treat, but an excuse to linger in the kitchen with coffee and catch up with all the awesome people you work with.
