An Insider's view of Likemind

What’s the vibe like in the office?

That's the best part... we all work remote and have the autonomy to plug in from wherever we want. Sometimes you can find me on my couch and other times I escape to my favorite local coffee shop. All team members get a $150/month to go towards coffee shop beverages when we want a change of scenery. Love it!
