Jaechelle Johnson, engineer
“We have received records of the entire company more often just to see the faces of the others. I think we use Slack ten times more than when we were physically together. And we started having video chats after business hours to drink and decompress virtual drinks together. “

Josh Nalven, language and experience manager
