How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-functional collaboration is key at Akili. Employees always have the ability to work with those outside their teams, as well as play a part in projects that drive the business forward. I constantly interact with members of the Marketing team, but also members of the Product, Sales, Quality, Medical, Legal and Data teams. This keeps work fun!
