What We Do for Fun

What Our Team is Saying

“The best thing about working here is the people. Everyone knows how to have a good time even while pursuing even more ambitious goals. No day is complete without audible laughter somewhere in the office, and rarely a day goes by where we don’t learn something new.”

“At VideoBlocks I feel my creativity engaged in a way that I’ve never felt in any other workplace. The environment here is incredibly innovative and if you have a great idea you can not only implement it, but see it potentially become a part of the core business.”

“VideoBlocks has given me the opportunity to develop my own career path in a fast paced and exciting environment. No two days are the same, as each one comes with new challenges and endless opportunities for growth and learning.”

Benefits of Working Here

We hire high-performance individuals; we trust you to get your work done, and we deeply believe that everyone needs down time to ensure peak performance.

Everyone gets input on the food and drinks we provide, and each week a different team makes a smaller grocery run just to make sure we always have some variety.

That chair just happens to be in a “Zen Room” that also has a yoga mat, room to stretch and a couch for cat naps.  The best part is that we encourage you to use it.  Studies show that working in bursts of intense concentration followed by breaks is the best way to ensure peak productivity.

We also have an FSA plan when you have to pay a deductible.  Work hard, play hard and stay healthy.  We encourage it.

Sometimes it’s easier to think outside of the office, and stepping out really helps us all stay connected.

Sure, every other start up has one.  The difference with us is that our ping pong table actually gets used – A LOT.  Naturally the Developers play, but our CEO is also a nut about it – even our finance team can’t go a day without a match.

Health and balance are important to us so we implemented a company-wide wellness program that features one activity per month that all employees are welcome to participate in. Activities range from group exercise classes (eg: solidcore, yoga, etc.) to chair massages in the office!

Helping employees save for the future is a priority at VideoBlocks. We offer both a voluntary Traditional 401(k) and a Roth 401(k) plan through Ubiquity with free access to Piedmont Independent Fiduciaries for questions related to your 401(k) investment strategy. To keep expenses low and help employees maximize their savings, VideoBlocks pays the monthly record-keeping fee for all employees. All full-time employees are eligible immediately and have the option to enroll at any time.

Sure we all get dressed up once in a while (after all, we do have a lot of cool outings, and we win a lot of awards), but in general we want you to be comfortable at the office – whatever that means to you (yeah, yeah, there are a few guidelines, but we’re certainly okay with flip-flops, shorts, jeans, etc.).
