It’s not all work and no play around these parts. We’ve mentioned before how we’re a competitive group and when our employees need a chance to rewind there are a variety of options to choose from: ping pong, musical instruments, video games, and other fun activities can be found throughout the office. However, our inter-office competitions have been taken to a new level recently by an entirely employee led enterprise: Magic the Gathering.
The popularity of Magic is on the rise across our Engineering team. Several times a week hopeful competitors gather in conference rooms to test their skills in a battle of cards hoping to be named the winner. And we’re not going to lie: they’ve gotten pretty good. So good in fact that we’re putting out a challenge to our fellow Magic loving engineers in the Bay Area: Come join us in the office for a Magic the Gathering Tournament and test your skills against ours.
We’ll provide the decks, scoreboards, snacks, you name it. The only thing you’ll have to bring is yourself, and a resume. If our current Magic playing engineer population is any indication of fit and success within our company- then we want to meet you! One sheet of paper is all that stands in your way between awesome prizes and potential gainful employment.
