An Insider's view of Smarkets

What are some social events your company does?

We eat lunch together every day! It allows us time to socialize and grow closer as a team, eat great food, and play one of our many board games or activities in the office. At the end of every month we also have a happy hour to celebrate that month's accomplishments where the team and their friends and family can all join!

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I'm always available to our team of just over 100 employees, but since I launched the LA office, I get to work alongside a team of talented developers on a daily basis.
