The LA office definitely has a relaxed vibe. There's music playing, interesting conversations happening, and you can usually find our CEO Rich roaming around the office. There's also a theater for movie screenings, and when you feel like hopping off Slack and interacting IRL, you're sure to find someone to talk to (and something to eat) in the kitc
