An Insider's view of FATHOM5

What's something quirky about your company?

We have a jar full of about 500 small plastic babies and we hide them around the office. There is one hidden in the software bullpen that remains undiscovered...

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I never feel afraid to ask for help, in fact, it's welcomed. Folks are willing and happy to spare time out of their busy day to help you understand something and push you forward. We work hard, but we still have fun. Conversations around the office are entertaining and filled with laughs, it truly feels like working with a big family. :)
