Insider's spotlight

What's something quirky about your company?

Every year for March Madness we do a bracketed Bake Off tournament with prizes for 1st place and runner up. It's a tradition that's 5 years strong and something everyone looks forward to every year.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Adage encourages cross-team collaboration through departmental ‘confabs’. Those weekly meetings allow people to share knowledge, ideas, and best practices with people in similar roles so that we can still collaborate with those who we don’t work with day-to-day. We also do book clubs, Lunch & Learns and guru groups to exchange ideas.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Adage has done a great job of supporting my professional development from my first day as a developer fresh out of school all the way to my current role of managing a team of Devs. There are always occasions to pick up a new technical concept or work on skills outside of your comfort zone, and Adage really allows us to explore these opportunities.
