Popsockets Culture:

It doesn’t take a lot to realize that PopSockets isn’t your average company. Sure, we’ve got pretty sweet products to thank for that. But we’d be hard pressed not to give most of the credit to our people. Which is why we strive to bring in folks that can help make us even better - people who are selfless, customer obsessed, responsible, impactful, passionate, innovative, and courageous. These are the same traits that define who we are as a brand. We work smart and play hard.
