Evening meetings involving company updates, a dueling piano bar and drinks on the house are always a blast — and our latest PM in the PM was no exception.
Many of our coworkers shared insights on where the company is going, new branding efforts and cool side projects. Basically, we like to get the whole company together to get everyone up to speed on what’s going on in all the different departments.
One of the highlights of the meeting was an update from Wags, a developer with Shift, talking about a game he developed from scratch where players control a spaceship to zap aliens and subsequently earn real cash — doesn’t everybody do that kind of stuff in their free time?
Space Bounty is an arcade style space shooter inspired by old-school classics such as Galaga and Space Invaders. As people play, the game jackpot grows larger, and then every 72 hours the top player receives the jackpot via PayPal! You can find it on the Google Play Store.
After the meeting, a dueling piano player provided us with some great entertainment — and then he humored us as a few of us stepped up to the mic for some impromptu karaoke. The high point of the evening however had to be when the pianist sang to Ellie for her birthday. She’s a tad bit shy, so it turns out she doesn’t like being serenaded on top of a piano in front of 60 people — who knew?
Overall, we had a lot of fun just hanging out with each other, and we’re already looking forward to our next PM in the PM!
