“Lola.com believes that creating a happy and cool workforce goes well beyond the perks of free snacks, parties, and beer,” said Emma Brudner, Director, People Operations at Lola.com. “What makes our company the coolest are the smart, motivated, driven, and fun teammates who want to make Lola.com the best workplace ever. We call this our “wicked loving” culture, and it’s cool to be a part of.”
Lola.com’s philosophy is that building a great company work culture begins with aggressive and pervasive transparency, and this doesn’t mean just sharing financials and distributing board decks. Lola has a really transparent culture where they share the bad news, along with the good, and they extend that transparency to candidates – being real during the interview process – and to customers, not exaggerating product roadmaps, overselling features, and making promises they just can't keep.
Though transparency is a top priority, they know how to party, too. The whole company gathers offsite every month for Lola Mosh to celebrate milestones, award spot prizes, share progress, voice new ideas, and hear from awesome speakers in tech, innovation, and startup culture. The annual company-wide summer event, Lola Quest, features a scavenger hunt and competitions, and turns into a legendary company party with its very own nightclub, bar, mood lighting, and DJ booth. How cool is that?
At BostonFest, the Hub gathers the coolest young professionals from the city's top startup companies for a huge party on the Lawn on D Street celebrating culture and innovation. From food truck favorites to local music, the best employers and brands, BostonFest is a can't-miss celebration of everything loved most about the city.
