An Insider's view of Xinova

What's something quirky about your company?

We have a number of non-official staff organized ‘clubs’! Whether you’re an avid reader, someone with musical talent, dungeon master or pool shark; you can probably find a group that shares your interests. My favorite is our trivia nights! I love learning about all the random knowledge my coworkers hold in their heads, and it’s great when we win!

Olivia

Project Manager

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Self-guided supported by constant communication. Each person is trusted out of the gate to manage their time in a way that ensures they meet their expectations, w/o making assumptions as to what productivity looks like for each person. This enables work & personal life to ebb & flow naturally rather than as completely separate lifestyles.
