An Insider's view of Acrisure Innovation

What are some social events your company does?

We have weekly lunches at the office, which is a great way to bring the team together, as well as doing a Thursday trivia happy hour that is a mix of remote and in office participants. We’ve recently started holding quarterly onsites that have included a scavenger hunt around the city, a bbq and brewery tour, and having fun happy hours downtown.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Every team here builds on the same platform and works on facets of the same product, so there is constant communication between teams. A few great examples of this are frequent design reviews, where engineers across teams talk through new services, and biweekly demos, where teams get to show off what they have been working on lately.
