An Insider's view of Omaze

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Omaze is like putting together a dream team. Work events are hard to leave, you wanna keep hanging out with your coworkers! Your team is full of cool people, and those you don't work with everyday are too. We work hard, but in the end, you have that "one more round, I'm having a great time!" feeling even when it's Tuesday and no one is drinking.

Laura

Lead QA Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

Because in-house legal supports every department I don't really have a "typical" day. (That's what makes my job fun). I may spend entire days dedicated to a singular regulatory initiative. Other times my calendar is packed with variety, jumping from strategic discussions with product, marketing, or HR to negotiations and internal policy development

Alexandra

General Counsel

How does the company support your career growth?

Omaze has offered me an unparalleled experience to draw on my experience while allowing me to stretch into new areas. Over the course of my 4 years at Omaze, I’ve loved the ability to expand my horizon and had the opportunity to lead Finance, Legal, Supply Chain, Analytics, and People team. I’ve had tremendous support on this fulfilling journey.

Nina

CFO

What is your vision for the company?

Omaze's vision is to be the first for-profit company to give $1B to charity in a single year. We offer people a chance to win dream experiences and opportunities like a role in Star Wars, a one-of-a-kind car, or a $2M house to support charities around the world, and we’ve helped over 300 nonprofits fundraise to-date.

Matt

CEO

What’s the vibe like in the office?

One day we're building a microservice and the next day we're at an offsite working with a charity volunteering a day of service. Our dog friends explore the company grounds as engineers hang out in the outdoor rooftop deck coding the future. At Omaze we engineer a better world and have fun doing it. We take our jobs seriously, but not ourselves.
