What is your office environment like?
It's awesome! We have a big office (20,000+ square feet) across three floors! We've got a huge amount of building/lab/r&d/engineering space, as well as plenty of space to focus and sit. The office is always bustling, active, and with as much as we are growing, we are often moving lots of teams and workspaces around. It's an 'open' office environment (no cubicles) but our developers have a quiet room, there's plenty of flex space and conference rooms, and most teams have a project space close to their desk where the team can huddle for projects, do work, or store things. We have family lunch 3x a week in a huge kitchen, which ends up acting as the center of the office. We've been expanding more and more into this building since we first moved in, so we've gotten pretty comfortable with things being in flux, and we readily adapt the space to meet the needs of projects and teams.

How many people are you hiring in the next year?
As many as it takes! We have 50+ jobs open online right now, if that gives you a taste. We don't hire for numbers, however -- it's always based on need, fit, and dynamics within a project or team. Because we work on fast cycles here, exactly what we need may shift quarter to quarter. We are always looking for "great people" -- and we do literally everything here. (Hardware, software, materials, all hardcore engineering! web, support, sales, design, marketing, operations, etc). Anything you can imagine doing at a growing consumer electronics company -- we probably have someone here doing it -- or we are looking for that person.
