An Insider's view of Simon Data

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It’s an exciting time to be at Simon - we’re expanding rapidly and there’s a lot of opportunity for personal growth. I love that everyone here, from junior folks to the executive team, is super hands-on. We work hard and we’re scrappy, but we know how to have fun - my favorite Simon tradition is going to karaoke during our quarterly offsites.
