One of the best things about working at Perlego is that we all have an appreciation for what each other is doing - in fact, we’ve got an appreciation station to prove it. We’re a young, ambitious team, who put a lot of energy into everything we do, including celebrating the small wins along with the big ones. 

We have regular team events (karaoke, drinks, Friday food, and an annual getaway to name a few) and we make sure to have a monthly meeting - beers and snacks included - to give all areas of the team an update on what we’re all working on. We even have our very own office dog on standby for emergency shredding needs (and photo ops).
