An Insider's view of Zipwhip

What are some social events your company does?

Every Friday we do something called Gourmet Lunch Friday, or "GLF" as we call it, where we get lunch catered by local chefs and the whole company comes together to eat lunch. This is also a time to go over weekly updates about product, engineering, and sales.
