Employee Testimonials

Current Employee

Fun, productive working environment that's constantly growing and evolving. The team-centric environment is extremely productive and it's amazing to see all of the core parts of the company collaborate to achieve a common goal.

Current Employee

Collaborative, dynamic and team-centric environment. Team members are dedicated, passionate and eager to take on new challenges. It's a compelling product with enormous potential, making it an incredibly exciting time to be a part of the organization. Start-up vibe -- high-energy, all-hands-on-deck mentality -- but guided by talented, highly-experienced (yet approachable) leadership.
