A Week in the Life at Gem One of the best things about our culture is not our pool table, or snacks, or Venice Beach office, it's that traditions spring out organically of us wanting to better ourselves and spend more time with each other. On Monday we find ourselves sitting in a circle to discuss the latest episode of Game of Thrones, The Bachelorette, or Mr. Robot. Every Tuesday and Thursday some of us get to the office early to do workout videos, because Matt announced he hadn't exercised in 2 years. On Wednesday we have "Gem Sesh" where we enjoy company sponsored lunches and discuss the latest and greatest technologies such as comparison of various consensus algorithms in the blockchain space, messaging pipelines in enterprise architecture, and security issues with smart contracts. Each Friday the team gets antsy to play the "Name Game" after work and sip a new spirit that Jeff brought in. There's currently 20 of us and we are now hiring more people to join the core team. Let's connect.
