Welcome to Lose It!! Located in the heart of Boston, we're right near the Boston Common with easy access to the T, parking garages and the commuter rail.
Our office on Tremont Street houses all 37 of our employees; we're right near the Park Street and Downtown Crossing T Stations.
Each of our conference rooms is named after one of the Boston legends buried in the Granary Burying ground across the street from our office.
Sometimes you need a quiet room to work in, and we've got a few of those in our office; this is what we call the ski lodge.
Most of our desks can be raised to standing height, and the alternative work locations around the office provide a lot of variety for different work styles.
Every 3 months, we randomly assign new desks to everyone on the team. It's a great way to get to know teammates from around the company and check out different desks around the office!
Our open office lends itself to casual, informal conversation. Since that can get noisy, each employee is able to select from our range of noise-canceling headphones for those 'need to focus' times.
Every Friday afternoon the company gathers around our large community table. We share updates on projects from around the team and enjoy spending time at the end of the week together.
Our monthly game nights, called 'mid-month cheers', are a night to play games, drink local beers, and invite friends and family members to hang out in our office.
