What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe is positive, comfortable and dynamic. As Office Manager, I try to promote a 'good vibes only' mentality, periodically hosting company-wide parties and ensuring a healthy amount of celebration and fun. I keep the kitchen stocked with all natural snacks and beverages to help the team stay sharp and focused.
