An Insider's view of Boom Entertainment

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Boom is fast-paced and highly collaborative. As a team, we’re all driven to build fun games that are intuitive and immersive to the end-user. The knowledge that I don’t have about a certain feature is what another team might have proficiency in. Communicating across teams in order to share this knowledge fosters relationships and is key to success!

Shibani

Software Engineer, Team Lead

What projects are you most excited about?

Our team is building projects that are intentionally seeking to disrupt the existing real money sports market. We are delivering new concepts and unique games to a wider audience than our competitors. Being an industry-disrupting presence is exciting!

CJ

How does the company support your career growth?

One reason why I am so loyal to Boom is that they took a chance on me. Boom’s leaders saw my potential and set me up for a path to success. Each employee, including management, is honest and consistent with feedback. That fuels my drive towards bigger and better goals and knowing I am supported by my team every step of the way.

Rick

Employee Engagement Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

In order to make sure I am accessible to the team, I attend all sprint meetings including the retrospectives and demos, and am always available on slack or email. I also schedule weekly meetings with all my direct reports and hold routine meetings with other team members. Lastly, we do 15Five's to ensure constant bilateral feedback.

What's something quirky about your company?

Boom’s culture can be described as “laidback but ambitious”. We wear t-shirts, hoodies, and jeans to our meetings. Our Zoom backgrounds are interactive and silly, but when it comes to creativity, talent, and productivity we are unmatched! Our diverse team is comprised of driven, industry leaders creating the most innovative products on the market!
