An Insider's view of ASICS Digital

What’s the vibe like in the office?

You can expect to hear anything from Celine Dion to Megadeth playing on Fridays from our Jambox, spontaneous poetry readings (from me), random off-beat slow claps for doing everyday tasks i.e. leaving the office. Overall though, my favorite thing about our office is the safe environment to be who you are every day.

Annie

Associate Product Designer

What does your typical day look like?

When your coworkers are composed of real-life ninjas, loon preservationists, triathletes, and office dogs, it's not an exaggeration to say that each day at the office is different. We're a fast-paced company with a laid-back vibe. We work hard to develop the latest app features but we're passionate about having fun along the way.

Maia & Yun

QA Tester, ASICS eCommerce & Software Engineer, Fitness Apps

What makes someone successful on your team?

At ASICS we seek out people that are smart, curious and humble. Above all, we make hiring decisions based on whether an individual will strengthen our culture or diminish it. No matter how strong the candidate's skills are, if we aren’t confident our collective team grows stronger with them on it, we won’t move forward.

Antonella

EVP, ASICS Digital

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The success of both my team and ADI at large depends on creative ideas being captured from everywhere, so we've created an environment where everyone feels comfortable and empowered enough to share their great ideas.

Peter

Senior Director, Engineering

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

As an Analytics team, our goal is to have ASICS and Runkeeper adopt a data-driven approach, which means to make strategic decisions based on data analysis and interpretation. This will help the company in deciding priority within business units and teams to focus on the key performance indicators and positively impacting performance of the company.
