What’s the vibe like in the office?

I would describe the vibe in the office as both fun as well as people getting things done. Another strong aspect of the vibe is collaboration. All of the engineering team's desks are on wheels. When people need to work together, they simply move their desks. It's very exciting what gets created when people collaborate together.
