An Insider's view of Heptio now a part of VMware

What are some social events your company does?

We’re a remote-first company, so we prioritize a yearly off-site for our team. We come together in a different location every year and hold all-hands sessions, break-out sessions, and fun activities so that we can all get to know each other and rally around the same goals. It’s an inspiring few days!
