An Insider's view of White Ops
What are some social events your company does?
We regularly host guest speakers, organize monthly social gatherings, and have ad hoc happy hours weekly. Every six months, we put together a company "on-site" at one of our global office locations as a way to socialize and share knowledge. Each team also organizes their own outings, off-sites, and attends conferences frequently.

What does your typical day look like?
I start my day with code reviews then have a standup with my team to go over tasks undertakings. A bit of brainstorming and pair programming with one of the developers which leads to a nice break involving lunch/snacks and/or video gaming/card games with the team and then I'll finish up tasks or carry over the remaining tasks to the following day.

What are some things you learned at the company?
Exceptional culture and mission can enable us to live meaningfully and accomplish the greatest work of our lives. If I’m spending 1/3 of my waking hours working, I want to solve complex problems and design experiences that make the world a better place with a team that inspires me to be the best version of myself. I discovered part of my ataraxia!

If you are not pushing forward then you are probably going backward. That's why we are creating a culture that encourages creativity and innovation
