An Insider's view of Zoom Video Communications

What’s the vibe like in the office?

At Zoom we like to work hard, play hard, and deliver happiness. It is truly amazing what a group of people can accomplish when working together for a common goal.

Nerf guns, scooters, ping pong, bbq's, gif wars, pop a shot, and free lunches are all great things, but it is the people and mission at Zoom that make this office so special.

Mike

Business Development Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration is a way of life at Zoom. I spend part of my day traveling the world through video meetings while sitting at my desk in beautiful Denver. The worst part of the job is going to shake the person’s hand and realizing they aren’t in the same room as me.
