Social events worth remembering (fencing competitions, curling, video game or board game parties, coding competitions, commando combat training, robotics club coming soon, etc).
Unlimited access to pillage our kitchens for caffeine, sugar, healthy snacks, soups, and more :)
Additional perks that are cost-shared like motorized sit-stand desks.

Fast paced
