How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

People are genuinely invested in each others success and my peers and superiors share their expertise with me to make sure that we're all successful. The organizational structure is extremely flat - this intentional lack of egos helps the whole team drive towards a collective goal all the while genuinely having fun and improving at the same time.
