An Insider's view of DAT Solutions

What's something quirky about your company?

Think one giant melting pot of friends working towards common goals. Over the years they've really become more like family. You'll always find people doing something to bring a smile to someone's face - whether a personal hand written note, "Flannel Fridays" or team themes like Reefer Magnus from Transformers. You never know quite what to expect!
