    An Insider's view of Canoe

    What’s the vibe like in the office?

    A healthy mix of cold brew on tap, snacks and quiet spaces to get work done. On most days the office is typically pretty quiet, except when the remote folks are in town! Bring your pool cue or ping pong paddle as fresh competition is wanted. Friendly office banter is welcome is an added bonus.
