An Insider's view of Privitar

What are some social events your company does?

We enjoy hanging out outside work, and have regular socials. On top of Friday beers, we do all sorts - from high speed cycling and zip-wiring, to things that are a bit less physically demanding, like heading to a comedy club and board game nights. We also have an annual Sports Day, for the competitive among us!
