An Insider's view of Albert

What are some social events your company does?

Our leaders truly understand the value of letting loose and getting to know each other on a personal level. In addition to an awesome overnight retreat that we do once a year we also do monthly events. Sometimes we geek out with a private trivia night, find balance with a meditation session at our local yoga studio, or volunteer in our community.

Kinga

Office Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As we add more features to our app (The Post & Instant most recently), we are starting to see exciting scalability and organizational challenges. As we're experimenting with different architecture and coding patterns, we are working towards reducing our build times and unifying coding patterns across the team.
