An Insider's view of Red Canary

What's something quirky about your company?

On a quarterly basis, we have a companywide gathering that we affectionately call BEASTMODE. It’s a great opportunity for “Canaries” from across the country to come together, level-set on the state of the business, get to know each other better, and build a close knit community trying to make a positive impact on the world.
