As you can imagine, being a team spread across multiple cities and states… maintaining an amazing culture can be more difficult than if we were all in the same office day in and day out. We’ve found some amazing tools and practices to help keep that culture thriving and fun.
But we’ve been able to build an amazing culture through our daily practices to connect with each other via hangouts and Slack… and multiple times per month some or all of our team gathers in person together for our “In-Office” days. Sometimes we’ll dive into focused work that day on a specific project… and sometimes we’ll grab some tubes and float the river on those hot summer days.
Every 6 months we typically fly the whole team in for one of our Carrot Retreats where we strategize, have fun, challenge ourselves to think bigger and see how we’re doing on our goals. These are a blast and have been huge for our culture.
In the end, your role will be as critical to our culture as any other role in the company and we want you to LOVE getting up and working every day. So if there is any way you can help us all live our core values more… bring it on! 😄
