An Insider's view of Spring Labs

What are some social events your company does?

One of my favorite activities is called GrubClub where the names of 4 employees are drawn every week (2 from business and 2 from engineering); the company sends them to a nice lunch. These events are a great way to build rapport with teammates in SpringLabs we don't see as much - it helps to maintain the 'family' feel in the company as we scale.

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

At Spring Labs, we’re big believers in proactive accountability. We empower our employees with the responsibility and the information they need to make impactful business decisions. The best organizations are able to run autonomously, which is why we facilitate an environment that encourages proactivity and accountability.
