Although most of the team is working from home due to COVID, we do also have a dog friendly "exposed post and beam" office in Yaletown with Nespresso coffee and healthful snacks and drinks provided. For those so inclined during the pandemic we also get out for unofficial team lunches and Thirsty Thursdays (or beer o'clock on Fridays).
