Our Traditions

Our traditions involve learning, laughing, singing, the occasional beer, and pizza (always pizza).

  • Birthday celebrations: Cakes and serenades (you can’t escape us). We celebrate birthdays monthly. Just let us know your favourite kind of cake.
  • We like to party: Board game nights, Nintendo tournaments, office karaoke, holiday parties, happy hour drinks, costume contests, and more.
  • Team outings: Each department is encouraged to do a quarterly outing. From apple picking to archery dodgeball it’s never a dull moment between colleagues
  • Quarterly hackdays: We are committed to fostering a culture of innovation, continuous learning and curious exploration. Once a quarter, we drop all regular tasks for the day and shift focus to one project that you’ve been itching to build.
  • Lunch & Learns: Every Wednesday is Lunch & Learn. That means that you get to listen to your colleagues talk about the latest conference they attended, or topic of their choice — with freshly delivered pizza in hand.
