What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is all about the fun and supportive friendships....from laughing and debating with ad-ops about the best sauce from Chick-fil-a... or joining the data team for lunch on the patio and learning so many cool things about politics and tech... or when walking around the office and hearing the laughter from the accounting office.
