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

Metric Theory works incredibly hard to ensure work life balance is achieved. Rarely are people working past 6pm, and often that's because we're sitting at the bar or playing ping pong. Metric Theory instills that 'life happens' and if you need to run to an appointment in middle of the day it's no big deal.

Hunter

Senior Manager, Digital Strategy
