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?

It’s a colorful mix of creative reviews, customer analysis, channel strategy discussions, and how to launch and optimize big campaigns in addition to branding and customer experience projects. I definitely can’t complain about monotony;-) and it’s fun tackling all of these with the nicest and smartest people around.

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.
