We hold regular Synth Jams after work, which is a great way to get to know your colleagues while also checking out synthesizers you may have never seen before, and learning more about them.


Social Media Manager

What does your typical day look like?

My days involve thinking about strategy (which products to build and why) and tactics (ensuring development teams have information required to move forward).
