An Insider's view of Rival

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office is laid-back, collaborative, and fun. We're passionate about live events, so we always have concerts or classic sports games playing in the background while we work. We welcome real-time feedback and open communication, so you can always find the team meeting outside on our deck or walking to grab coffee in our Playa Vista neighborhood.

Melissa

Team Operations Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

While there is a strong sense of ownership, no one is possessive and everyone is willing to help you when you hit a speed bump or need guidance along the way. There is a real sense of respect across the team from executives down to the most junior employee.

Alex

Senior QA Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Rival has taught me a ton about business strategy. As an academically-minded engineer, I've always seen business as a place to apply new ideas. But our executive team’s candor has given me a new level of understanding. The context adds a layer of meaning to my work, and it helps me make better technical decisions.

Chad

Staff Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

To bring the magic of tech to the most iconic consumer experiences on the planet - sports and music - and be an agent of change for an industry that badly needs it. Fandom and passion for what we do is in our blood. I want Rival to be a place that lets our people thrive, do their best work and transform the world around them.

Ann

COO

What's something quirky about your company?

We have every flavor of La Croix stocked in the fridge daily and our snack game is ‘100’. Also, we name our development environments after our dog friends, who often roam the office and brighten everyone’s day!
