    An Insider's view of Farmer's Fridge

    What are some social events your company does?

    Working at a start-up can be a roller coaster, so we do our best to balance work & play.

    What does your typical day look like?

    Given the fast-paced environment at the Fridge, things change so quickly around here. Each day comes with new projects and priorities - and no two days look the same. From meetings and calls to strategizing with the team, and travel, in the two years I've been here, it's safe to say that each day is different.

    How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

    I love coming to a place where my coworkers are supportive of my trials as a working Mom. Where time is made for quiet, uninterrupted work with weekly clarity breaks.
