Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office fosters creativity and individuality. While we all have our roles and tasks to accomplish, we celebrate each others differences, tastes, and hobbies.

We encourage personal and professional growth, as well as sharing of experiences, which in turn helps build camaraderie.

QA Analyst

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

At Versus, we're working on solving a problem that cuts both ways: gamers hate ads, and brands hate that gamers don't click their ads. By allowing people to compete for cool prizes, we give gamers a fun way to raise the stakes and help brands reach them in ways that aren't rage-inducing.

Lead Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Versus supports our career growth by encouraging us to pursue areas of interest where we want to learn and develop. Examples for me include paying for me to take a visual design course, pairing me with coworkers who can help me gain new skills like brand design, and sending me to conferences like the UX Summit.

Sr Product Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The open door is central to our worldview. The CEO's door is always open, as are all doors. Collaboration is natural due to diverse teams and real relationships with one another, not just formal processes. What would take countless weeks to resolve at other companies, I have seen resolved in mere moments, due to a synergy that is precious and rare.
