We have been spending a lot of time thinking about what kind of company we are trying to build at Datanyze; not what kind of business, but what kind of company. As we continue to focus on hiring amazing people, we are constantly contemplating what defines our company culture.
We work hard around here…really hard. But we do it for two reasons: 1) we love it, and 2) we know how to have fun, too.
Creating company culture is tough, but incredibly important. We decided early on that we would have regular happy hours and team events in order to step back from all the hard work and just hang out with each other for a bit.
We’ve been consistent with our weekly happy hours and yesterday was our first monthly team outing, inspired by our newest addition, Jason Vargas. Jason is a huge L.A. Kings fan, and it just so happens that they are in town playing our local hockey favorite, the San Jose Sharks. Check out the picture below of us at the game and see if you can guess who Jason is:
If you couldn’t figure it out, he’s the one without the Sharks towel forcing out a smile. The game, which started with the Sharks down 2-0 and ended with them winning 7-2, was an exciting way to inaugurate our monthly tradition and will certainly be hard to live up to.
Interested in coming to our next event? We’re looking for amazing people to come join our family and we’d love to hear from you. Check out our careers page and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume and why you think you’d be a good fit.
