our community

culture only exists in a community that connects

We take building culture as serious as our production environments... engineer humor...

It's core to who we are as a team to connect in ways that matter. To us this means things like:

  • teaching and learning at our Lineate University
  • holding weekly Lunch 'n Learns
  • and monthly Project Fairs where teams present cool work
  • and parties and celebrations across all our offices


We are also serious about sharing knowledge, what we are thinking about, and what we are learning, with the wider tech community.
