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.

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 the chance to win dream experiences like be in Star Wars or win a $2M house, and are using technology to distribute these prizes globally. We use the funds to create tangible projects like schools and soccer fields in every city around the world.

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.
