An Insider's view of Stash

What are some social events your company does?

During COVID, it's different, but social and team events are still important, as so many are friends even outside of work. In the fall, we went apple picking, had picnics, bike rides, and gone golfing. Being remote, we've hosted murder mysteries, monthly trivia, magicians, a salsa band, and our DEI Committee had a painting and wine tasting.
