Weekly rituals, celebrations and show-and-tells are all ways you’ll build great bonds with the team you work alongside. You’ll be surrounded by people who find purpose in their work, and have fun doing it at the same time. You’ll find teammates with deep levels of pride in what they do, and a customer-obsessiveness that is furthered by regular feedback cycles.
