We’re a team made up of unconventional career paths, and that diversity of thought and background breeds unbridled innovation. Despite our differences, we are committed to working in a coordinated and harmonious manner (though we may become animals when the office snacks come out). We make work something to be enjoyed, not endured. Whether it’s birthdays, product launches, or work anniversaries, we celebrate without abandon. Our team collectively owns a disproportionate number of pets compared to the population average, and we love bringing them to work. We believe in work-life integration. We come to work and bring our best, and while we like to leave our work at work, we bring that same hustle to our life outside the office, whatever it is we’re doing – volunteering in our community, spending time with our families, making vintage dresses, skiing, teaching horseback riding lessons, publishing comic books, and everything in-between.
