Situated in downtown Boston, our state-of-the-art office features a luxury espresso bar, free-flowing snacks, candy, chips, and healthier alternatives plus a smoothie bar, ice-cream sandwich station, and loads of other treats that the team is free to enjoy. Surrounded by the best bars, restaurants, and entertainment the city has to offer, our Boston team regularly gets together for after-work socials (they can often be spotted at the arcade, where their competitive streak comes out).

Boston attracts some of the brightest minds from all over the world. It is an internationally renowned technology and business hub, in part due to the nearby prestigious universities, which include Harvard University and The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
