An Insider's view of Fanatics

What are some social events your company does?

We try to do several fun things each month. From root beer floats, baking competitions and game nights to potluck lunches, cooking classes, movies, Festivus, birthday celebrations and happy hours. With an office of 30+ people, we try to have a variety of events to cover the different interests in the office.

Angie

QA Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Working at the Fanatics Boulder office makes for a great work day- through the day it's easy to maintain a balance of concentrating on work, communicating with my team, and taking a break for lunch or a walk. I really enjoy being able to work a modern office setting with nice equipment, snacks, and friendly co-workers.

Jeff

QE Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've been with Fanatics 15 months. I've learned three new languages. I became a go-to person in our office for AWS and DevOps skills. I've influenced code quality standards, architecture, and what frameworks and languages we use. We are encouraged to continually learn and grow, and given agency to put our new skills to use in meaningful ways.

Dave

Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

When architecting a solution, we allow each team the ability to choose the correct tool for the sitiuation. We do not force them to use any particular languages or technologies. The teams have found that creating lightweight POCs frequently turn into full fledged solutions rather quickly.

Jim

Director, Branded Engineering

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We collaborate using a lot of methods depending on which area of the business that we need to talk to. Most tech focused teams rally around Slack conversations. Discussions outside of the tech team tend to use more traditional channels like email, video, Jira, and Git. People from other offices are also always coming to "visit" us in Boulder.
